Melissa McCarthy plays Michelle Darnell, a dog eat dog business woman who goes from supreme fame and fortune to losing it all to insider trading. This film has a host of actors from Peter Dinklage, Kristen Bell, Kristen Schaal, Cecily Strong, Margo Martindale, Tyler Labine, Parker Young, and Ella Anderson.
Sadly, not even the powerhouse herself, Kathy Bates could save the movie for this viewer. Featuring a lot of lewd and crass humour, many of the jokes fell flat. Not to say that profanity can’t be used in the right comedic context but in this film it seems to be there for the sake of being there resulting in taking away from the film’s humour rather than adding to it.
