slow start. had some funny moments. the trailers and the outakes at the ending credits that we saw were the best part of the movie. the leads in the movie were good. the kids were funny, specially the older daughter. melissa macarthy was hilarious. more thought provoking about middle age than funny.

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!

When I saw the movie was over 2 hours I thought "Oh No", but the movie was funny, fast paced, you could identify with the different characters because we all have family and memories that were portrayed in the story. I would see it again and very seldom do I watch movies twice.

Great movie! Lots of true to life scenes, situations we all may find ourselves in at times. Plenty of humor to make the most awkward times bearable! Definitely worth seeing! Loved all the characters, especially the children!

This is 40 hours long

Or at least it feels that way because of how long, painful, and awkward it is. Some good lines are interspersed with seemingly endless pain. Worse, the movie makes little logical sense and shows no progression. Rather, at times they seem to decide to act normally, leading to happiness, and at others they do and say obviously insane and counterproductive things that make them miserable. But there's no rhyme or reason as to why and when they do each. Awful plot.
