I'm sorry, I know this doesn't need it's own topic, but am I really the only person on the effing planet that thought this movie was stupid?

I have been wanting to see this movie, I have been hearing from people that I know that is is hilarious. Not sure what if I will pay per view it or not.

I've yet to meet someone that didn't think it was hysterical, but I've watched it twice now and at most, I've chuckled at a couple of parts. I think I may be broken.

I thought it was funny, but not the best movie of the year or anything. Kristen Wiig did a pretty good job. Horrible Bosses and Hall Pass were both way better.

Maybe it needs an audience around you? I loved it. I thought it had the perfect balance of sweet and awful. Also some of the Milwaukee parts actually looked like Milwaukee, which is kind of a shock.

The first time I saw it was in the theater, but at a very bad point in life so I just figured I didn't like it because I was going through a lot of crap right then. I rewatched it last week and had the same reaction of "Meh, it's got some funny moments, but it's really just way too over the top for me to be rolling with laughter." I guess my sense of humor is just different.

I thought it was ok... but seriously I hate characters that just are me me me and mess up their own lives intentionally!

I was just irritated that Jon Hamm had time to make Bridesmaids, but the next season of Mad Men has been so delayed. :D

Actually, I did laugh. Not hysterically, but I did think parts of it were funny. Of course, some of that may have been due to the fact that my favorite little theatre now serves wine and my girlfriend and I had had several glasses by the time the movie started!

I thought it had funny parts, but I didn't see what the big deal was either.

My mom saw it twice & she and my sister were raving about how absolutely hilarious it was, so I was pretty much set up to be let down.

Meh, it was okay. I've heard people laughed their asses off, which I didn't really get- and I've heard people walked out 15 minutes in because they thought it was terrible, which I don't get either.

I still think of Melissa McCarthy as Sookie St James, though..

You're not the only one!

I've wanted to see this movie. It came out right around the time my brother was getting married. I was one of their bridesmaids, and it probably was the last wedding I'll ever be a bridesmaid in, so I just felt like I should have gone to see it. But with everything else going on around that time, I wasn't able to get a group together in time. One of these days I'll borrow it from the library.

Agreed!

I guess I just feel like everything was too over the top to be funny. Not many of the characters or their actions were very realistic, but also not zany enough to be super funny. It felt like everyone was just playing a "crazy character", which I guess they were?

Better late than never! I had heard how hilarious this movie was from tons of people. Boy, was I disappointed! It had some funny parts, but overall I wasted $5.00 renting it on OnDemand. I just don't get what people thought was so hilarious. I have friends who actually bought the movie because they AND their husbands love the movie so much. Whatever!

      Stupid loneliness!
      Kid 1 went back to college (yeah! But sad foe me, she stayed with me all summer. It was nice to start a new phase in our mother/daughter relationship)
      Zero prospects on dates. (Not that I have tried online dating, scared of that but I have reached put to a new group at church, etc.
      I asked a friend to go to dinner the other night so I wasn't eating alone, again. The friend had plans, all my friends always have plans. I see stuff on social media, I'm never invited. I'm single, I'm the 3rd or 5th wheel.
      My one parent friend at kid 2's fall sport won't be there because their daughter made varsity (Yeah for her!!! Seriously happy for her. Sad for me for another sport I basically sit alone, did that majority of spring and summer sporting events.)
      And now I'm crying as my mom told me 2 different funny stores that former teachers remembered about my twin. Both stories were about how they got a crack out of my twin's antics (my parents went to a funeral today and saw former colleagues). Teachers remember me (after all I was a twin and teachers' kid) but none would have memorable stories of me. 
      I feel invisible. 
      Don't worry, this will pass,  it always does. I just need a pity party for a few days. I'm not in anyway going to harm myself. As lonely as I am, I have a very full life I (usually) love. I just needed to vent and cry for a moment. 
      If you are still reading this, thanks Fjer. 😊

      Absolutely awful about the fires on Maui. In 2019, I stayed in Lahaina. I liked to sit on the sea wall, which is the only structure left now, and watch the water. People are receiving help, but many had to leave pets. Please donate to the Maui Humane Society, which is leading efforts to find, treat, and reunite pets.

      Nebraska’s new football coach, who is involved in an organization called Man Up Ministries, labels certain players “Alphas” and sometimes “extreme Alphas” and the local paper has a nice piece on why people objecting to the term “alpha male” are wrong and it has a “nice ring”. 🤮🤮🤮🤮
