This was a shockingly sweet, unpredictable in parts, truly funny & meaningful movie. My daughter & I both laughed, teared up a little, & hugged afterwards. Such is the 'uplift' felt after seeing this surprise of a movie.
I already liked Tina Fey, but was guarded at what might potentially assault my senses in any movie she's in. Happily that wasn't the case here. Lilly Tomlin was actually a bit more...not raunchy per se, just more of a rough-around-the-edges character (who I found HILARIOUS).
Paul Rudd, what can I say?? Who doesn't love him & his work? I love him & this was no departure from his loveable, sweet characters (with a little edge...so funny!).
The only reason I didn't give this movie 5 whole stars is that, as with most movies nowadays, there could've been a bit more left on the cutting room floor. It dragged just a bit in the middle. And the fact that they throw in the 1 extreme expletive. Don't expect squeaky clean, but darn close & worth it!
I highly recommend it for people to go see it.
