In truth there's not much to this movie, director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses and the upcoming Unchartered based on Naughty Dog's Award Winning Playstation game and Wargames, a reboot of the Acclaimed Matthew Broderick 1983 original) tries to do a good job with the limited script and in all fairness what I believe makes the movie watchable is Jason Bateman (Horrible Bosses, Horrible Bosses 2) and Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids, The Heat, St Vincent), the laughs come from the interactions between Jason and Melissa and towards the end does become alittle absurd. But apart from this and being in my opinion a little long for what it offers in entertainment (1hr 30min would of easily been better) it offers a couple of laughs. With Melissa on fine form with Sandra Bullock in 'The Heat' I find it difficult to recommend, unless your having a Melissa McCarthy movieathon that is.

Formulaic road trip comedy, but the actors make the jokes funny

if you go beyond all the things that don't make sense, it is kind of funny.
