Boy oh boy have I been waiting to see this film since they first released the poster and stills from the film. I am a huge fan of Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Wendi McLendon-Covey, and Ellie Kemper. Nothing is more exciting for me than hilarious women, even more so with Paul Feig as director and Judd Apatow (40 Year Old Virgin) as a producer.
The movie did not disappoint. The mesh of raunchiness, the roles of women, and heart was just superb. I think too many comedies nowadays are having either too much raunchiness or too much (cheesy) romanticism. This film is not any type of cheese.
I’m not familiar with the work of Melissa McCarthy but I wasn’t excited for her because of that show “Mike and Molly” that recently came out. I caught some of a couple episodes and absolutely hated it. Despite this, I thought she brought just as much hilarity to the table as the others; I’m still not going to watch that show though.
I got a little sad though that Tim Heidecker (Rudolph’s fiancé in the film) of Adult Swim’s “Tom Goes to the Mayor” and recently deceased “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!” didn’t partake in the hilarity. He had some nods, smiles and maybe a line or two but that’s it. No worries T&E fans, he and Wareheim are currently working on what’s now titled as “Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie.”
If you haven’t seen this movie… what the hell are you waiting for?! Go out and see it! It is absolutely worth it. This is going to be an instant buy when it comes out on DVD.
