I'm a big Kristen Wiig fan, and she's great in this one! Very funny, and good chemistry with the entire cast. Melissa McCarthy and Chris O'Dowd are excellent in their supporting roles. My favourite scene takes place in the bridal gown store, but there's lots of laughs in this very good comedy!

Great fun. Silly. Slapstick - laugh out loud.

I was disappointed at not being able to watch the entire copy. For some reason, it slowed my entire computer down.

The first part should be a comedy but I did not managed a single chuckle. Cliché upon cliché of what Hollywood thinks a stereotypical woman should be like, including a very forced lesbian kiss. I actually had to skip the mic-duel between Annie and Helen as it was painfully stupid. The second part picked up a bit, at least some characters started thinking and behaving like normal people. Over all, sad; confirms my suspicion that a good comedy is not east to make.

Are there any actual watchable copies of this available through the library ??? So far I have borrowed two of the copies and both were damaged ( ie. skipping). Have not had this problem with other dvds borrowed from the library.

Seriously overrated and not very funny. Talented cast but they couldn't make it work, I don't understand how people can think vomitting is funny, I just found it stupid.

Finally, a SNL alum film that's really funny! All sorts of laffs in here - embarrassing, sweet, raunchy, sentimental, bodily function based, smart - you name it. Maybe now the women characters will get their fair share of skits on the show. note to Melissa McCarthy -I'm holding my wallet ready to buy opening night movie tickets for the film when you try a different character- you've made your nest egg letting others pigeon hole you in the "funny fat side kick" role - now show'em what you can really do!

I went to watch this movie but was unable to complete it due to it skipping. Maybe I just got a bad copy?

In comedy, comedic ability can uplift mediocre writing only so far.
Kristen Wiig was the only funny thing in this so-so movie.
Melissa McCarthy is an over-rated Chris Farley clone. I had heard great things about this. I even saw it a second time a year later to see what funny nuances I may have missed. Still underwhelmed.
Both 2/5 stars
go to Kristen Wiig though.

Sexual Content: The movie opens with an energetic, often loud sex scene; no sensitive body parts are shown, but nudity is implied. Plenty of sexual innuendo/talk
