I want to like this movie better than I did. It’s not that I didn’t like it, but I’d say it was just alright. I was expecting it to be a LOT funnier - but it wasn't as dumb as I was thinking it might be, either. There were definitely some stupid/over the top scenes - and quite a bit of language - but there was also more story to it than I was expecting. The movie made me feel sorry for Melissa McCarthy’s character, even though she’s the bad person who stole the identity of Jason Bateman’s character. Even he felt sorry for her after awhile. It was much more emotional and touching than I thought it would be. Maybe it just wasn’t quite what I was expecting? Depends what mood you're in, I guess!
