Michelle Darnell is a titan of industry who is is sent to prison after being caught for insider trading. After getting out, she finds she’s lost everything and no body will help so she ends of staying with her former secretary and the secretary’s daughter where she finds inspiration to start a new business.

It’s not very unique. A lot of it was obvious. Rich person that cares about no one loses everything and ends up discovering something more important. It wasn’t horrible or anything. It was funny. But it was lowbrow. Cursing, drugs, sex and physical comedy. Not that it’s bad. I like that kind of comedy. But it just seemed to lose something. I think because they dragged kids into jokes they had no part in being apart of. And the seemed to use the sex with the short guy (I’m not even going to try to figure out was the PC term for them is…) as a main joke. It was just odd and slightly uncomfortable…


I like Melissa McCarthy, so I’d recommend it for that, but..
