The supporting characters are the people who are funny. They're the people we care about. And every time the movie cuts from their mad antics ... the whole film starts to deflate a little, like a Mylar balloon from the discount party store.
A joyless, laughless - that's right, not even one laugh - affair that proves how indulgent and (worse) boring ensemble comedies such as this become when the ensemble has next to no natural chemistry and even less of a script to riff off of.
The actors are reduced to independent contractors, brought in to patch up subplots that don't add up to a cohesive whole. You admire their individual talent while the movie around them sags and lurches.
A tiny bit of invention and a few good laughs emerge. Which is what you'd hope from a cast featuring some of the funniest actors around, among them Kate McKinnon, Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, Rob Corddry, T.J. Miller and Jillian Bell.
A busy but witless and stale comedy that rehashes every raunchy gag we expect from R-rated comedies, it also wears its hackneyed sentimentality and cookie-cutter underdog story beats as proudly as adhesive nametags.
