Melissa McCarthy can be very funny, but when she’s allowed free reign, her rants often become tedious. That’s pretty much sums up this film (co-written with her husband), which has her barreling thru the plot and characters with lots of mean-spirited comments and cruel behavior. She plays a pompous successful businesswomen who loses it all, goes to jail, then tries to rebuild her life (with the help of her former assistant, played with no humor by Kristin Bell). While there are attempts to make her sympathetic and give the movie heart, those are as transparent and predictable as the entire plot. I’d be willing to forgive McCarthy for all her nastiness if she made me laff, but this film tries too hard to be outrageous and ends up just trying too hard. (And that high-neck look just gets weird). Stay thru the credits for even more unfunny moments.

 

1.5 out of 5 stars (1.5 / 5)
