A lazy, incompetent middle school teacher who hates her job, her students, and her co-workers is forced to return to teaching to make enough money for breast implants after her wealthy fiancé dumps her.
Beca, a freshman at Barden University, is cajoled into joining The Bellas, her school's all-girls singing group. Injecting some much needed energy into their repertoire, The Bellas take on their male rivals in a campus competition.
Sarah Ashburn, an FBI agent, is extremely ambitious and has her eye on a promotion, but she doesn't get along with her co-workers. She is sent to Boston to uncover the identity of an elusive drug lord, Mr. Larkin, by tracking down his proxy, Rojas, and is told that she'll have a good shot at the promotion if she finds Larkin. When she arrives in Boston, she learns that Larkin has been eliminating his competition and taking over their operations. She learns that Rojas is in Boston PD custody and goes to see him to ask him what he knows about Larkin, but is warned that the cop who arrested Rojas, Shannon Mullins, is very territorial, and she is not exactly sociable. When the two meet they don't get along. When Mullins learns why Ashburn is in Boston, she decides to find Larkin herself. Ashburn is told by her boss to work with Mullins, but it won't be easy because Ashburn does things by the book while Mullins does things her way. Written by
This movie is just terrible. Thankfully, they only got me for a buck at RedBox.
Is she pandering to people who laugh at fat jokes and foul language? I don't know. There's nothing wrong with profanity in a movie. . . it's just not funny in this one. There's too much of it, for one. It's like hearing the same punch line over and over, and over, and over and over. . . again.
This is what going to see one of Melissa's movies has become. Staccato cursing and over the top profane cut downs. Yea, we get it. She's got a dirty mouth and doesn't respect authority? Yawn.
This is just bad writing. She can do better. "Bridesmaids" proved this. She was the breakout performance of that movie. Such a shame that she is wasting all the "Bridesmaids" momentum by choosing lousy scripts.
