the phallocentric emphasis on fellatio i found difficult to accept, especially as 1) mccarthy was the screenwriter, and, 2) much of this dialogue was uttered in front of prepubescent girls. The attitude conveyed was, it (fellatio to get what one wants from a male-dominated world) is no big deal; in fact, it is the way of the world. i am sure if the writer were a male, this would have generated me-too type efforts to censor/ban/demonstrate against those scenes which suggested if the sympathetic characters NEEDED TO DO IT, then to go ahead and perform the act, with no gynocentric qualms from either the character played by ms. mccarthy, or the character played by ms. bell. a couple of clicks down the dial, the big news was joe biden's being too touchy-feely, and how he was to respond, appropriately. the disconnect between the lefty value system, and the reality in an entertainment product such as this discombobulates my mind.......and, how about the advertisements from the past for camel cigarettes, the phallus-like head of the camel illustration; and one of the most popular films of that decade, ET, whose lead character definitely resembled a penis, which the little girl obviously adored: how to get the penis back home, where he really belongs....hmmmm...better than heinlein, mr. spielberg. talk about hiding in plain sight.

It had funny parts to this movie and I do enjoy most movies Melissa McCarthy does. This was silly to me ok story line.

Melissa's full of hijinks and chuckles. Her chubby innocent facade is counterbalanced by the dirty humour. All in good fun.

Just a silly movie. Melissa McCarthy fans will love it. Just a meh from me, some laugh out loud moments but not a must watch.

Was disappointed by this movie, no where near as funny as Spys or The Heat; and I couldn't get over noticing the turtle necks glued to her chin through the whole movie.

Just a bunch of garbage. I skipped ahead hoping it would get better but it didn't. Don't waste your time.

GOOD 2016 film with fine performance by Melissa - although the plot is somewhat weak.

This DVD is totally scratched up and would not play in my DVD player or my computer.

Terrible. Mindless. No plot. Not one laugh.

Another one of those new age entertainment that relied on shocking foul-mouthed Melissa McCarthy to supplement comic skits. Quite a few LOL moments and the bad languages in front of the children were awful or funny because they were outrageous.

Coarse Language: Bad language.

Other: Alcohol is mentioned throughout, specifically in reference to spiking a morning coffee.

britprincess1ajax Sep 08, 2016

Sexual Content: There are a lot of verbal sexual references for comic effect.

britprincess1ajax Sep 08, 2016

Violence: There are a couple slapstick fight scenes, but I wouldn't qualify them as overly violent as they are always used for comic effect.

britprincess1ajax Sep 08, 2016

Coarse Language: The language is pretty rough, dropping a fair share of f-bombs and other equally offensive words.

Michelle Darnell: I am amazed that the United Center is even still standing because I crushed it tonight!

Tito: You crushed it like velvet!

Wait a minute! You can't just return them.
-They said I wasn't a good fit.
There'll be another family, Michelle.
...
Oh, come on! Wait a minute!
-What's the matter with me?
Not a thing, Michelle. God's children are all perfect. In their own way.
...
Never lose hope, Michelle. There's a family out there for everyone.
-Come on, Agnes. Families are for suckers. Don't worry about me. I don't need anybody. I'm going straight to the top.

How did I get to my success level? What's my secret? I worked myself silly. Okay, number one. You work your ass off to get what you want. Number two.You do not let other people drag you down. 'Cause they will. They are an anchor in your life that you do not want. Cut 'em loose and sail off. If you work this program... You. Will. Get. Rich.
And I'm not talking about chump change. And I'm not talking about some loose dollar bills at the bottom of your purse. I'm talking about real fxcking money! Life-changing money!

"I tried a Dorito for the first time last night. It wasn't cheese. It was... cheese adjacent, but not cheese. It was really good!"
