ReelViews for movies starring 'Melissa McCarthy'
McCarthy plays it straight, allowing her talent as an actress – often hidden under the dreck for which she draws big paychecks – to shine through.
The transgressive element is edgy and at times amusing, but it wears thin quickly.
It reminds us that female-centered gangster movies can be just as generic and forgettable as those featuring male characters.
Too dispiriting to be painful and too pointless to deserve the effort necessary for an additional word of opprobrium.
