Melissa McCarthy was great in Bridesmaids and she brings the same character to this movie. Unfortunately the gags that worked in a brief scene don't make for an hour and a half film. She's simply vulgar, un attractive in personality, and its hard to find the pushed upon sympathy the film tried for at the end. Supporting cast is great and Jason Bateman makes any film worth seeing. I tried to like this movie but it simply wasn't funny: it was vulgar. A decent Redbox rent but I'm disappointed we spent money to see this at the theater.

Melissa McCarthy is hysterical is this movie! There were four of us and we were laughing out loud for a good portion of the time....It was a bit dragged out towards the end, perhaps could have been about 20 minutes shorter, but it was worth the wait for the great ending!

So let's not over analyze this movie... just go!
Great cast, too many unecessary villans, but stand out comedy performances by McCarthy and Stonestreet! Bateman always does a great job as the responsible, vanilla family man. A wild ride with many shenanigans along the way.
One very funny adult scene, so don't take your young-uns!
