I had heard good things about this so I gave it a try but was sorely disappointed by what I saw. Selfish, irresponsible child woman is jealous when her friend isn't bright enough to see that a superficial new friend is trying to push her lifelong friend out of the way. Add in her other unbelievably coarse, vulgar acquaintances and supposed hilarity ensues or not as was my case. Didn't care a whit about any of them and was anxious for the overlong proceedings to end. Chris O'Dowd does what he can with what is a stooge part and Melissa McCarthy is a big enough talent to make a little something of a terrible part but not enough to save this turkey. Sad to see Jill Clayburgh obviously ill, just listen to her voice, wrapping up her film career in this sorry film.
