While this movie may not be enjoyable for single 20 somethings, if you are married with kids you'll love this movie. The script and acting were spot on.

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!

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.

This is only the second movie I have ever walked out of. The folks in front of me left also but much earlier on. I am usually game for just about anything as long as it is well done but this was a pathetic attempt at comedy and totally not funny. There was also one scene in there that has ruined it for me and Paul Rudd. I will never be able to watch him again without thinking of it. Oh well, there's always Johnny Depp to fall back on.

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!
