There are super-villains in the world and no superheroes to keep them in mind. Emily (Octavia Spender) and Lydia (Melissa McCarthy) had a dream as children to fight them and, brought together years after a massive falling out, Emily’s genius allows them to do this.
Man, I wanted to love this so much. I love Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer, but I hated this film. It felt underwritten, the characters were underdeveloped, it felt like it needed more time. I want to see women being funny in quality films, and this felt indulgent and disappointing.
