This is a moderately humorous comedy. It isn't a movie that will become an always-on-tv-classic, but seeing it once isn't a bad thing.
Scarlett Johansson does a surprisingly good job in her first lead role in a raunchy comedy. In fact, there isn't a sour note with any of the casting choices. But, as usual, Kate McKinnon steals the show.
The trailers make this movie look like a fairly simplistic and formulaic comedy, but the full story is actually much more complex and interesting. It is filled with twists (although they are super-easy to spot), and out-of-the-ordinary moments that make this film better than your average party flick.
If you are looking for a comedy that will have you rolling on the floor with laughter you may want to look elsewhere, but this film will give you several chuckles. If you're hanging out with your girlfriends this weekend and are looking for something to do, give this one a shot.
NOTE: Make sure you stay through all of the credits.
