There are a few moments of funny in the film but the overall impression I had was that of a director / producer playing it safe.
Melissa McCarthy is her hilarious self,she seems to bottle her strange but adorable character and spray it all around this film,she is the female equivalent of Will Ferrell,her socially awkward nature creates a great tonic for any film.
Now I like Jason Bateman but I am getting tired of him seeing play the straight guy,Arrested development,Horrible bosses,Couples retreat,Hancock,Juno, Jason if you are not bored with playing these roles I would just like to state that everybody else is bored with seeing you in them, please for the love of god, take on a role with a bit of meat that doesn’t involve you pushing for a promotion at work while being concerned for your families well-being.
If they had just gone out and tried to make a funny movie without worrying about offending anyone the film may have been a hit, instead it just feels too safe,I can picture the producer ticking off all of the demographics while deleting all of the risky scenes not to shoot in the film.
Not bad to fill some time but it’s instantly forgettable.
