Not great but very, very enjoyable!
Tina Fey and Paul Rudd were the most likable from perhaps all of their performances ever; you genuinely enjoyed being with them. The movie's not as rip-roaring funny as Bridesmaids or Hangover; no gross-out or sexual humor. But LOTS of good, solid, PG funny laughs. (That sounds like a dig but it's not.) And the two kid actors, especially Rudd's adopted son, were very good. That kid will be a star. Liked the script, lots of funny bits. And Lilly Tomlin, who played Tina Fey's mom, was consistently funny and delivered her most emotional moment wonderfully. Director had just the right balance, and the script nearly brought you to tears when Tina Fey's world collapses. All in all, very enjoyable -- during the longest drought of unappealing movies I can remember!
