Fabulous movie if you're in this lifestage

Very hilarious and a bonding marital movie for my hubby and me. The take away for us was that we were not so different than others in our lifestage--the stereotypes were so dead on that we were a bit uncomfortable (ie. sitting on the toilet playing Scrabble on his phone). We laughed so hard and will recommend to our friends in their 40's with kids. I do wish the F-bombs and cursing would have been used less frequently. It was excessive and had no humor because of the overuse. Great life-stage movie!

Do people really talk that way?

Lots of potential but it was hard to watch because of all the swearing ... Especially disturbing to see the kids swearing at the parents and the complete disrespect with which they all treated each other. If this is even a little but true, it's not hard to see why our kids from this environment would be messed up.

Funny indeed... maybe only if you can relate to it

I thought this movie was splendid, and funny... much better than I expected. My guess is that you must be able to relate to the situation in some capacity to be able to enjoy it (i.e. married, kids, age, etc). I'm married in my late 20s with no kids yet and totally got the humor of it all. If you can draw comparisons in any way to the premise of the movie, then go see it... but go with your husband/wife! =E

I was disappointed. I expected more laughs. I felt like I was in the middle of another couples argument for 2 hours. Saving grace was Melissa McCarthy, she was a hilarious! If you go- stay for the out takes. I laughed harder here than the entire movie.

I really liked this movie, I wasn't expecting it to be 2 hours long but it was enjoyable all throughout. It was really funny and I think its a perfect date night movie, something the guy and the girl will definitely enjoy.
