i'm gonna puke
What starts as a female gross-out comedy populated by caricatures turns into a sweetly felt, thoughtful story about friendship and growing up.
i feel like the 21st century has birthed far too few good solid comedies, and while it's not perfect and i can't quite put my finger why it doesn't achieve greatness, upon re-watching it i found myself liking it more and more. kirsten wiig, rose byron and mellisa mccarthy are gems, and some scenes are top-notch while others don't quite jive for me. jon hamm laughing during sex tho. every time it gets me.
It made me feel like I had cockroaches under my skin like that guy in Creepshow (1982). An extremely uncomfortable experience. Gross and obnoxious.
i just loved kristen wiig in all of her movies, especially this one (since she's the main character). she makes this movie so entertaining and makes us pity her at the same time.
Wiig and Rudolph...funny as they can be. I like every minute of their performances. The acting does it for me :)
Just saying that 'woman can be gross too' is no substitute for actual consideration of girls. Instead all this film does is bill woman as people who are petty and pathetic, or, everything that misogynists would say they are.
I turned this off 15- 20 mins into it. I may give it another shot someday. Melissa McCarthy's character seemed like a riot but the rest of the cast and storyline seemed so annoying. I couldn't take it.
Funny, but flawed and a bit overrated. The cast is likable and there are a number of strong moments - Kristen Wiig's freak-out on the plane is a high point. But it could be a lot tighter in places and goes a little too over the top at times, and it also tips the scales a bit too far into sentimentality in the second half, as is often the risk with the Apatow formula. Still, entertaining.
Let future historians know that by 2011, the last remotely subversive way to do a poop joke was to have it done by a woman.
