Did Melissa McCarthy ruin it for you?


Read or heard from people that they were upset that she was in, McCarthy is one of those actresses that not many people care about, maybe it's because she's got a punchable face or she's not a hottie for young boys or she's a loud overweight woman, I don't know what it is but not many care about McCarthy at all.

She is unfunny - so it's weird to have someone who is unfunny in a comedic role.

You don't need to be fat or ugly to be funny, look at the women in Modern Family they're not hideous.

Not that it would have lead to a better film but it would've been better from a marketing or comedic if it was a mixed sex cast of guys and girls, like two men and a girl or two men two girls.

she's one of the reasons. i don't think sandra bullock or mindy kalin would have been much more enjoyable. off the bat it was irritating that this wasn't gb3.

She's alright. Leslie Jones is far more annoying.
