I saw this today as one of my friends got a sneak peek and said it was hysterical. And while I loved McCarthy in "Heat" with Sandra Bullock, I have not really laughed at any of her movies where she was the lead (Tammy and Identity Thief).

I had low expectations but went anyway. And it was worth it.

Funny movie. Laughed more than enough times to forget how many times I laughed. Well written, well paced and well acted. Good stuff all around from everyone, including McCarthy. She played her role straight when called for and over the top when needed. And she was really good.

But the absolute best part of the whole movie was Jason Statham. Even if you hate McCarthy, go see this for him. He was hysterical. I can only imagine how many takes they had to do during any of his scenes because of how good he was.

If you are a McCarthy fan, you will love this movie. If you are not, it is still worth it for Statham and the rest of the supporting cast.

McCarthy in a Paul Feig movie = pure comedy gold
McCarthy in pretty much anything else = borderline terrible



After over 13 years and 6800 posts, was finally named W of the Day on 3/21/2015. It's now all worth it!

That seems to be the formula. Although she was pretty good in Saint Vincent, but she had a very understated role.

A decent amount and she was really funny. She had a few scene stealers. If they do a sequel, she will get a larger role.

Saw this on Saturday. Fantastic flick. Like was mentioned earlier, Statham steals the show.

Plus, Miranda Hart is great.

Fun flick.

This was a rare one in that the trailer looked like a clunker and the movie turned out to be much better.

I liked how McCarthy and Rose Byrne's characters just tore into each other with the insults. You just don't see women get to be that a-holish to each other in movies.

I just watched The Heat today and there were similarities. The f-bombs in both become tiresome. Less can be more.

McCarthy/Feig have taken on buddy cop movies and spy movies- what's next - westerns?
