Ok, let’s make this quick: no. Just no. I like Bridesmaids. I didn’t love it, but Melissa McCarthy gave possibly the most amazing comedic performance in a decade. She lit the screen on fire. Here she reunites with Bridesmaids director Paul Feig as a Boston cop forced to partner with a prissy FBI agent played by Sandra Bullock.
I love McCarthy. Every time she opens her mouth (to swear, because that’s pretty much the whole of the script) it kind of kills me, but there’s a difference between the incendiary comedic performance she turned in with Bridesmaids or hosting SNL and just falling down and swearing. Bullock honestly is lucky she made Gravity this year and reminded me she could act because she’s a horrible comedic actress.
That’s honestly all the discussion this movie rates aside from my observation that this film has the most intrusive and annoying soundtrack of hip-hop in cinematic history. It’s the only noteworthy thing about it.
