An unfunny Melissa McCarthy film? Yes, Sadly, It Is
24 April 2016 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

What can i say but wait for her next one. There isn't a redeeming scene in this entire film.

She would have been better off leaving this for someone else and put all her efforts into reprising her role as Sookie in the Gilmore Girls remake (luckily she will be a bit player at least).

The script should never have gotten green lit, its atrocious.

I don't have adequate words to express show truly awful this is.

From the moment you see that over the top televangelist haircut, you should be forewarned that this is going to be truly terrible

Avoid
