Votes: 38,935 | Gross: $63.03M
(+) The charm of Melissa McCarthy saves the film from being overly obnoxious and useless; (-) Lukewarm comedy with no particular laugh out loud moments; The love story between Claire and Mike feels extremely out of place and irrelevant to the plot -- it almost feels like they ran out of things to put into the movie; Michelle Darenell's character growth is never well planned out -- and it becomes very hard for the audience to relate the her story when her personality is undecided throughout the whole film -- one moment she seems absolutely normal -- the next moment she becomes a lunatic; All these random characters that are nothing new to the genre having these pointless engagement with the main plot

Votes: 329,676 | Gross: $13.78M
(+) Music theme is good; (-) The biggest problem is the pacing -- extremely off -- there's a *beep* monster in the house!!! -- no one seems to rush at all -- "you are the most suspicious and we will do you last" -- are you kidding me?; Science is way off in this film -- the blood reacting theory and the computer program; Every time after a person (innocent) is killed, there seems to be no repercussion; They all seem to be idiots and make bad decision -- you stop caring after a while

Votes: 2,223 | Gross: $0.04M
(+) James Franco makes some interesting points; It does point out some real issues with straight actors in queer theatre-- this somewhat also applies to other minority theatres as well; (-) Nothing really happens -- why do they even need to make a movie about this? -- this could just be an YouTube video for the amount of content they have put in;

(-) Mediocre to poor acting; Fake crying; All the empty build-ups and then scene change; The end fighting scene is so stupid and awkward; The ending is just lazy; So no one has called the police or notify an adult member that *beep* are going down? -- evidence of massive pretentiousness;

(-) The entire movie is undecided with what it's trying to say -- what it means by fatherhood -- what it means by family; Most of the time is a cliche tale of fragile masculinity, which is uninspiring and unfunny; Token black person -- what century is this; Dance offs? -- what century is this?

Votes: 398,644 | Gross: $150.95M
(+) None; (-) Just a tacky movie -- with the tacky soundtrack, the cheap tattoos and the over simplifying the world views; The tiring and inappropriate plot of abusive mentor turns a good person -- he is having sex with a recently turned adult while he is in a position of power -- not cool; The mum's death is very abrupt -- one second they are fighting, the next second Triss is having the cry of her life;
