I feel like probably the same gang is after this movie, that sort of cyber-bullied her Netflix special, as the score is really, honestly not in line with the quality of comedy this one is.
Having said that, I do think that her last Netflix special was indeed piss poor, very tired, unispired, sort of like the 2nd album of a one hit wonder, so trolling or not, it did deserve a low number. This commedy however, is easly better in every aspect than her first movie, the Trainwreck, whcih was very entertaining too.
If we talking about easy-listening in music, this one is easy-viewing, it starts off with an epic funny, laughing out loud scene and never drops the ball from there. The writing is light but decent, switching between the story being relatable and laughable perfectly. Just how easy going the writing (and hence the whole movie) feels, is well expressed through the fact, that *SPOILER ON* none of the main characters find love. Amy plays a fresh brake-up from a meaningless relationship NYC girl, and her mom in the movie -Goldie- is a divorcee living with a bunch of cats, working on her match.com profile...you would think you know where the story goes from here...well you dont:) They dared to go a bit anti-hollywood with the storyline, to an extend where a potential love-interest of Goldie's role disappears from the movie in the funniest, least expected way. *SPOILER OFF*
The acting is spot-on, which is really a great testament to Amy, as she is lining up with acting legend Goldie Hawn and still doesnt fall short at all. The comedy is done to perfection with very well dosed bits of slapstick and smart elements. I have laughed out loud at least 5 times during the movie, and find the whole thing entertaining, and never really tired or over-done.
All in all, it is a safe pick for a movie night with someone you dating (or even made the mistake of marrying:D), or also by yourself, you will get your recommended daily allowance of laughter and will see some beautiful latin-american scenery.
