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.

Thought this movie was absolutely hilarious. A must see --- for ADULTS.
We went on a Saturday afternoon to see the movie. It is "R" rated. I was extremely disappointed seeing about ten (10) children at the theater and felt very uncomfortable when some scenes were showing. I guess these parents are the ones who wonder why their children get into trouble. Shame on them. I think that the movie theaters should not allow anyone in an "R" rated movie under the age of 17, even if they are accompanied by an adult.

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.

There's no denying that the two leads have chemistry and talent. There's plenty of physical comedy and the actors perform with terrific timing. What's missing here is a good story and good lines for them to deliver. Don't expect any memorable lines or scenes. The movie is funny because Bateman and MaCarthy are funny and good together. Unfortunately, that's only enough for those in the mood to enjoy it, but not anyone with a discerning eye.
