If it weren't for Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann I would have been snoring long before I was, which was about 2/3 through this overly-long (by at least 30 minutes) film. The material was not good enough to be carried even by Rudd and Mann. Their kids, played by Judd Apatow's own kids were pretty cute and adequate. Albert Brooks, as Rudd's dad, was so annoying, I could barely stand to watch the scenes with him and Rudd. A few laughs, yes, but not memorable in any way.
And if I see Melissa McCarthy being Melissa McCarthy one more time in one more movie, I'm offing myself.
I'd give it 2 1/2 stars out of 5. Maybe 3, tops. But then I've seen so many GOOD and entertaining films lately, this can't hold up.
