Goofs

Several times throughout the movie it is referred that Michelle is a "parolee". She was investigated by the SEC and would have been convicted in federal court then imprisoned with the Federal Bureau of Prisons. She would not have been on "parole" upon release. The Federal government abolished parole in 1987 with the Sentencing Reform Act. See more »

The Queen of Crass and Crude goes to the Nth Degree
12 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Melissa McCarthy has made a deserved name for her crassness and crudeness. I found her raw humor in Bridesmaids and The Heat to be extremely entertaining. But this movie, which presents her as a businesswoman in the mold of Martha Stewart, does her a disservice. What set McCarthy apart in the movies where she shines is that she's the one being crass and crude, surrounded by more normal people who make her stand out. In this movie, everyone seems to be trying to be just as crass and crude, if not more so, including the numerous girls playing Girl-Scout-like cookie sellers who get into a street brawl over cookie-selling territory. Poorly written movie. Not funny. Despite that, the movie is doing well in the box office. It's hard to imagine the audiences for this. Too crude to take kids. Not enough adult humor for adults.
