It's funny

Melissa McCarthy is funny, yet again - the movie has some raunchy parts - but it's a great laugh.

This title has:

Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 14+

Not funny infrequent uses of language and sex references

This movie has many uses of sh-t and infrequent uses of f--k. People overestimate how rude this movie is because, really, this movie is not that bad. There are some silly sex references used for no reason and f--k is used for no reason as well. This movie is not that bad but is a very boring and not funny comedy.

This title has:

Too much sex
