A titan of industry is sent to prison after she's caught insider trading. When she emerges ready to rebrand herself as America's latest sweetheart, not everyone she screwed over is so quick to forgive and forget.
Following a ghost invasion of Manhattan, paranormal enthusiasts Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates, nuclear engineer Jillian Holtzmann, and subway worker Patty Tolan band together to stop the otherworldly threat.
The story follows Michelle Darnell, a titan of industry who is sent to prison for insider trading, denounced by her former lover, Renault, who still holds a heavy grudge towards her for their breakup, after getting a promotion a few years ago. After doing her time, Michelle emerges, ready to re-brand herself as America's latest sweetheart, but not everyone she steamrolled is not so quick to forgive and forget. With nowhere to go and no one to scam, Michelle is forced to move in with former assistant Claire and her young daughter, Rachel. Now at her lowest point, Michelle wastes no time in devising a winner-take-all plan to rebuild her empire..
Michelle Darnell wears turtlenecks throughout the whole movie. See more »
After Michelle is released from jail she has nowhere to live and seems to have no money at all even though prior to being released she is told all her accounts had been frozen, not cleared out. It's unlikely that she would have lost all of her money for a crime whose jail sentence is only 5 months, particularly if she was significantly wealthy beforehand. See more »
Melissa McCarthy is hilarious... This movie is better than its rating. Yes there are things that would never happen and people gripe about that but this isn't a freaking documentary it's a comedy. It's supposed to be a bit ridiculous. It's a good movie if you want a laugh. I'm looking forward to the next one written by her and Ben Falcone.
