Wonderful character development!
Although I seem to have had higher expectations than I thought, the movie is super entertaining.
The joyful confection is coated in a sparkly gloss, bright enough to gleam from the darkest, most cynical corners.
So very disappointed that these two would even put their names on this movie.
Wait wait wait...what was that ending?At the end of the party, the entire swimming pool sinks into a giant sinkhole. Then, in what can only be a few days later (if that), Amy's character is swimming in the backyard pool as though nothing happened? So they fixed the sinkhole AND replaced the swimming pool AND had it ready for swimming, all before Tina's character had a chance to wipe "I Love Balls" off the fridge??!?
I guess that proves that women can be just as sick as men. Hollywood is dead and now what passes entertainment is take a women and writer her as a man...
This is a formula movie, and I'm sure you're seen it before. I'm sure you've seen the party scene that gets way out of control, the person not invited who tries to ruin it, adults acting like children, and other things, so I'm sure yo won't be surprised, but this movie was pretty funny thanks to the two stars. It could have been better though.Tina Fey (an irresponsible mother) and Amy Poehler learn that their childhood home is about to be sold and decide to hold a party to hold onto it. Of course, things get way out of control. The party scene was hilarious, but could have been toned down a little bit.I enjoyed the party scene, the part where they rescued the daughter from the sinkhole, Poehler's scenes with her "love interest," and Fey's scenes with her daughter.** 1/2 out of ****
