Storyline

Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson) is a pioneer and legendary host on the late-night talk-show circuit. When she's accused of being a "woman who hates women," she puts affirmative action on the to-do list, and --presto!--Molly (Mindy Kaling) is hired as the one woman in Katherine's all-male writers' room. But Molly might be too little too late, as the formidable Katherine also faces the reality of low ratings and a network that wants to replace her. Wanting to prove she's not merely a diversity hire who's disrupting the comfort of the brotherhood, Molly is determined to help Katherine revitalize her show and career--and possibly effect even bigger change at the same time.

This is a total cringe-fest. One third through I thought 'this might be half-good' but ten minutes later I thought 'no, this is diabolically bad!' There were so many cliche-packed scenes, so many maudlin moments, so many sentimental sequences - each one chasing the other into thankful forgettability. What on earth was the talented Ms. Thompson doing in thin dump truck of a movie? Mindy Kaling means well but her tendency to appear cute has become tedious and obsolete. Can't forget quickly enough.
