If you are looking for a few good laughs, then who am I to try to stop you from seeing this movie? It will absolutely tickle your funny bone several times. There is no doubt that this is a comedy.
Now, if you are wanting to go see a GOOD comedy, well, this is the wrong place to look.
Yes, Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne have great chemistry, great comedic timing, and deliver a bunch of laughs, unfortunately, the script they had to use is just plain bad. I like to call these "find and replace" comedies. It's the exact same formula that we've all seen a thousand times, only the writer just does a find and replace with location, character names, and the money-making method.
Before you head to the theater, you should also know that this movie is extremely raunchy. It is filled with dirty jokes and innuendo. If that kind of thing is not your thing then you should go do another thing and avoid this thing completely.
While I wouldn't suggest spending money to see this in theaters, this is the kind of film that would be a fun night at home with your girl friends. It's not a great movie, but it is funny enough to give you an entertaining evening at home.
