    I'm surprised a talkback hasn't been made yet. This movie overperformed at the box office, its getting good reviews and there is a chance to make a sequel.

    I saw this a couple weeks ago, I'm surprised that it's been so successful but there hasn't been any discussion about it.

    I think this movie is surprisingly hilarious. At first I was reluctant to see it, but then I read that Judd Apatow produced it and Paul Feig directed it, so I thought it must've been funny, and it really was. I really liked the potty humour, probably because one wouldn't really expect that from a film starring all women.

    All the female characters had numerous moments of hilarity, especially Megan.

    It wasn't just a funny movie though. It some heart to it, and got depressing in some places. We got to see Annie's life gradually fall apart and watch her fail at rebuilding it at certain moments.

    Overall, great movie and I hope it starts a trend for female comedies to not fall into tired stereotypes.

    Also, here's some outtakes. NSFW.

    As someone who mostly liked shows featuring all-female casts. I really wanted to give this one a shot, and it was able to succeed.

    Kristen Wiig had some great acting chops in this one. She usually plays socially awkward characters in MacGruber and Paul, in this one, she's a little more different, most notably during her rant.

    I do admit that the gross-out gag did seem a bit...forced. Didn't seem to have much signifigance out of it.
