There’s no denying that this silly, light comedy has its share of hilarious moments. Sure, the story isn’t particularly exciting or revolutionary, and while the screenplay and pacing aren’t always on point, there’s so much chemistry between co-leads Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn that it doesn’t matter. The movie could have tapped more into Hawn’s considerable comedic skills than it does here, and while that’s a shame it doesn’t distract from the two charming leads, who tackle each plot development in stride while focusing on laughs instead of pathos. Amy Schumer makes a more successful transition from small screen to the big screen here than she did in 2015’s disappointing “Trainwreck”.
Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)
