Wealthy CEO Michelle Darnell (Melissa McCarthy) always gets her way, until she's busted for insider trading and sent to federal prison. After leaving jail, Darnell finds herself broke, homeless and hated. Luckily, she tracks down former assistant Claire (Kristen Bell), the only person who's willing to help. While staying with Claire and her young daughter, the ex-con devises a new business model for a brownie empire. Unfortunately, some old enemies stand in the way of her return to the top.

Terrible. Mindless. No plot. Not one laugh.

Another one of those new age entertainment that relied on shocking foul-mouthed Melissa McCarthy to supplement comic skits. Quite a few LOL moments and the bad languages in front of the children were awful or funny because they were outrageous.

I absolutely love both Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Bell. They are both comic geniuses and I look forward to all of their films!

This one was a waste of time. Mellisa McCarthy stunk it up. The story line was garbage. And the acting was 3rd rate at best.

This movie has its funny parts but there is just too much going on, there is about 3 stories in one and it gets confusing.

Lousy. None of the characters are very likeable.

Tame comedy where it looks like the actors did this movie for some quick cash. Nothing more.

We agreed to watch for 15 minutes before deciding to turn off; the longest 14 minutes of my life.

Other: Alcohol is mentioned throughout, specifically in reference to spiking a morning coffee.

Sexual Content: There are a lot of verbal sexual references for comic effect.

Violence: There are a couple slapstick fight scenes, but I wouldn't qualify them as overly violent as they are always used for comic effect.

Coarse Language: The language is pretty rough, dropping a fair share of f-bombs and other equally offensive words.

Wait a minute! You can't just return them.
-They said I wasn't a good fit.
There'll be another family, Michelle.
...
Oh, come on! Wait a minute!
-What's the matter with me?
Not a thing, Michelle. God's children are all perfect. In their own way.
...
Never lose hope, Michelle. There's a family out there for everyone.
-Come on, Agnes. Families are for suckers. Don't worry about me. I don't need anybody. I'm going straight to the top.

How did I get to my success level? What's my secret? I worked myself silly. Okay, number one. You work your ass off to get what you want. Number two.You do not let other people drag you down. 'Cause they will. They are an anchor in your life that you do not want. Cut 'em loose and sail off. If you work this program... You. Will. Get. Rich.
And I'm not talking about chump change. And I'm not talking about some loose dollar bills at the bottom of your purse. I'm talking about real fxcking money! Life-changing money!

"I tried a Dorito for the first time last night. It wasn't cheese. It was... cheese adjacent, but not cheese. It was really good!"
