Hugely successful businesswoman Michelle Darnell (Melissa McCarthy) is convicted of insider trading and sentenced to prison. After being released, she is forced to move in with a long-suffering employee of hers (Kristen Bell), and tries to earn redemption and revamp her public image by helping a group of young girls in their quest to sell brownies. Peter Dinklage, Kristen Schaal, and Kathy Bates co-star in this comedy, which was directed by Ben Falcone (McCarthy's real-life husband), and co-written by McCarthy, Falcone, and Steve Mallory.~Jack Rodgers
“I don’t need anyone. I’m going straight to the top." Michelle Darnell (McCarthy) has had a hard life. Living in and out of orphanages growing up hardened her and made her the woman she is today; one of the richest and most powerful women in the world, and former prison inmate. When she is released she has nothing and no one to turn to, except her former assistant Claire (Bell). Willing to accept her in for a few days but after Michelle takes Claire’s daughter to her Girl Scout meeting everything changes. After watching the last few McCarthy movies I have said that she only has a few movies left before her humor starts to get played out. After watching this one I realize that I am wrong. She is as hilarious as ever in this one and is one of her best movies she has ever made. She really lets loose in this movie and says and does things that are different then her usual unsure of herself characters, and it works. There is something about her that is just so likeable that even when she plays a character like this you can’t help but laugh with, and not at. Overall, one of the funniest and smartest comedies I have seen in a while. I laughed out loud many many times watching this, and I watched by myself. McCarthy is a comic genius and I can’t wait till her next movie. Watch this today, unless you offend easy. I easily give this an A…a very very hilarious A.
I was happy to finally get a chance to see this movie. Maybe my expectations were higher than they should have been. I generally am a fan of Melissa McCarthy movies. This one is pretty mediocre. It was watchable, but not one of her funnier films. Feel free to skip this one.
Well my review is more about best buy online orders. It was quick, easy... and I actually got my movies one day before the original delivery date. This isn’t my first time buying online through the best buy website each time has been a breeze and always received my merchandise on time or before. Thanks best buy.
