Had the basis of a good story, but buried it under a blizzard of unnecessary profanity. Several people walked out. I stayed, hoping that under all that crap would be a pony, but no, just crap.

It is very seldom that I have walked out of a movie, but I came very close to doing just that after watching this HORRIBLE film. I expected it to be light-hearted and funny. Instead it was boring and depressing with a non-existent story line that made no sense and went no where. The best part of the whole movie was about 2 minutes that were dedicated to a small role that Melissa McCarthy had. She was hysterical, the rest was just DUMB! Save your $10 and spend it on a decent movie!

Mildly entertaining in some parts, but supremely annoying in others. Paul Rudd plays the mambie pambie son to a loser mooch of a dad. Leslie Mann is barely likable, and together, she and Rudd are dishonest with each other, which makes for a really unappealing plot. The daughters in the movie provide many of the funniest moments, but the older one winds up making me want to smack her smart mouth.

I did not expect to enjoy this movie so much. I am so glad I did, hands down one of my favorite movies of the year and I see lots of them.

As someone who loves a great comedy and a movie that is aimed right squarely at my demographic - middle age, young family - I thought this was awful. It wasn't funny - save for a few good lines - it was patronizing (enough Apple product envy, omg!), and the family, by and large just wasn't likable. Hence the reason why I thought the ending was implausible. I lterally felt like I wasted two long long long long hours watching this movie.
