    I wish I had more to say. Thought I could go on for hours about this one, but it's just good. A bit lightweight, but Paul Feig's movies are.

Probably Feig's second best movie other than The Heat. Why couldn't…

BAM, THE MOST ANNOYING OPENING TO A MOVIE, EVER." It's just a barrage of bleating and overly-cute camera work and annoying, annoying, ANNOYING characters. I was this close to turning it off. I had the remote in my hand at least twice.

    But then something happens. It's hard to describe. It's like the movie…
