A great cast could not overcome a dull script. Random, ill developed characters popping in and out of a storyline that was all over the place. If we laughed more than a couple of times I'd be surprised. I guess you could call it a drama-dy but it fails at either. A silent theater during a Melissa McCarthy comedy? Say it ain't so! Oh wait...we did laugh .... At my husband groaning about how awful it was. Sad because I was looking forward to this one. I give it 2 rather than 1 just because it wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen, but I would advise waiting for an out of theater option if you feel you must see this because you love Melissa. It's pretty disappointing.
