The movie was mildly entertaining, but I would not recommend anyone rush to see it. It was basically a rehash of previous films of the same type. Jason Bateman's talents were wasted....this was basically a movie showcasing Mellisa McCarthy; who was way funnier in "Bridesmaids". It also tries to paint very bad people as victims of society. Not a good lesson for children!

Hilarious movie, my daughter and I saw it together and it was a great mother daughter movie date. The humor is endless, these two actors are perfect for this roll, can't say enough about how funny it was, and we are still laughing about the "Bermuda Triangle". If you need to laugh this is the movie that will do it for you, the language could be offensive to some, but the comedy out weighs the language by far. Looking forward to the new movie with this actress and Sandra Bullock.....another super funny movie we're pretty sure......will be our next date.
A must see.........we are going to go again, can't wait for the DVD.

I love Melissa, she is talented and FUNNY AND not a size zero.
Melissa STOLE the show; it is worth going to see; everyone in the theater was cracking up.
Go see it.

This movie was horrible. Thankfully, the acting was good and I appreciate Bateman and McCarthy, they did well... but the entire premise and writing was complete garbage. The movie had very few funny scenes and the few funny scenes it did have were mediocre at best. Unfortunately, I think McCarthy is getting pigeonholed as an over-the-top foul mouthed scruffy character that she will never be able to break out of. It's unfortunate, because I believe underneath her shallow performances we have seen so far is a fairly good actor. She needs to broaden her range and pick scripts that aren't complete junk.
Bateman slid from view for awhile and looked like he was on his way back up to the A list, but if he keeps picking garbage scripts like this, he's not going to get anywhere. Don't bother with this movie, unless it's at home. It's a waste of time and money.

Not every movie is an Oscar contender... This movie delivered plenty of laughs and some heartfelt / tender moments. We are already big fans of the cast, most especially Melissa .... She is a great physical and visually expressive comic. Yes, these movies are a bit predictable, but there is enough fun here to make this a very enjoyable movie.
