If you’re looking for a film to make you laugh, especially with friends, and not much else, then you’ll like this film.
The plot, what little there is, is pretty cliche, but, to be fair, they’re aiming for funny not a great story. The conflict is dealt with pretty much as soon as it is introduced. The second half waned in the funny, but it just managed to hold on.
Tina Fey and Amy poehler are gold together. All around me in the cinema people were laughing out loud. On walking out I heard someone saying, “I didn’t expect it to be that good.”
There are some cheesy/cringe moments, but I’m betting any comedy film of this kind will have these. What someone finds hilarious someone else think it’s garbage.
It’s a funny film that’s enjoyable to watch at the time, but ultimately forgettable.
To sum up, Funny, No story, Hilarious main characters
