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.

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.

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.

This actually was a pretty awesome movie. Yeah the premis isn't anything any of us would wan to face, but it throughout Jason and Melissa play off of each other fantastically. Expect some crude humor, and to be laughing throughout,I know I did...A MUST see if you love these type of comedies!
