This is possibly one of the worst movies I have seen in recent memory. Every single plot line was unbelievable, which would have been okay if it had been a little funnier and a little less gross. Some of the garbage written into scripts these days is just beyond me. If there are sexual references they need to be funny.........not just gross. And no one should feel sorry for a criminal. The pathetic attempts to make us want to feel sorry for her........NO! There are consequesces to bad behavior. Period. And the entire setup was too ridiculous. No one would recommend someone flying across the country to catch a crook themselves. This was not worth the price of admission.

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.

I loved he movie and thought it was very funny. I will buy i when it comes out on DVD. However I am very upset with the review that Rex Reed wroteabout the movie! How dare he call the star of the movie such terrible names. He is very mean-spirited!

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.
Momma T and Boo :)

My boyfriend and I loved it! So many comedies have come out recently that try just too hard (e.g. Movie 43), thank goodness not this one! Effortlessly funny, and wonderful characterization really makes this film a Must Go!
Melissa absolutely makes this movie -- not once does it turn too mushy, and the ending is actually pretty realistic!
