I can understand the needs for this comedy. After all, it feels like a female-lead Judd Apatow movie, and it IS produced by Apatow... the feeling and treatment, sadly, aren't nearly as satisfying for me as the Apatow stuff.

Most of the humor, I could see coming a few miles away, and so the 131 minutes of length this movie has, made me think it was too long at times, too predictable in its telling, and too fast at times, tying the loose-ends near the end credits. It felt like an overlong whiny and almost unfunny version of "Knocked Up".

Luckily, Kristen Wiig and a few notable others do give wonderful performances and make it believable to live in this type of movie. Sadly, Melissa McCarthy, one I haven't seen a single role I liked her in, is also in this (can you believe she's being asked to do the next Ghostbusters???). Most of her scenes are "let's make fun of being fat" or "let's act Zack Galifianakis type of weird", but there IS one scene where she shows potential in the third act, where she isn't her overtly loud character... I wish there was more moments like this. The movie lacks a sense of closure. In a scene that happens in a bridal salon, it appears the intention was only to tell a particular joke and run with it without having real consequences to the said event.

Direction doesn't seem to have been too hard when dealing with talented actresses. And these were a much talented bunch. In fact, it does appear like most have their own personality, problems, angsts, etc. Wiig does get the crown as the main character, though. She delivers a strong, sensitive, whiny performance with a multi-layered prospect.

I guess it takes all sorts, but maybe I haven't opened myself enough to this movie, knowing what I know about Feig and him being now the helmer of the Ghostbusters reboot... that probably didn't help AT ALL.

A fun girls night film that is entertaining, easy to watch and relatively forgettable. Not the best film ever made but inoffensive.

Maybe it's because I'm a guy, but I didn't find this movie as funny as most made it out to be. It had its moments but when I started watching it, I almost found myself watching the clock - never a good sign of keeping interest in a movie. It picked up after that and had some good parts but was not anywhere near as funny for me as The Hangover was. Then again, that's more of a guy flick, this is more of a girl flick and that's ok, both have their audiences. Nevertheless, some good performances were to be had in this one.
