If you're looking for a romp with multiple "laugh out loud" scenes, good coherence
of plot and a bit of appropriately placed sentimentality, this is your film!
Melissa McCarthy is brilliantly funny using both her physical comedy and her well-honed
stand-up ad lib skills to supply the films biggest laughs; this only works playing off Jason Bateman's straight man act, whcih is the best in the business after Ben Stiller.
T.I,, Robert Patrick and Eric Stonetreet all deliver good performances in supporting roles
with some character depth, while John Cho and Amanda Peet, good actors in thier own right, cannot overcome the shallowness of their scripted roles.
All in all this is a fun movie I would highly reccomend.
