Post The Heat (2013)
I saw an advance screening of this last night and thought it was hilarious. Paul Feig has really found his trademark: take traditionally male-dominated genre movies and insert women instead. It works. Melissa McCarthy was great in Bridesmaids and she's great here as well. She can get laughs just from a facial expression, let alone profanity-laced gems. And unlike that earlier movie, which got way too serious at times, this one keeps the laughs coming, and the by-the-numbers plot thankfully doesn't get in the way too much (a mistake Hangover Part III made).

The packed crowd I saw this with loved it. I'm not sure JB will like it that much considering he doesn't rate comedies with female casts very highly, but I had a good time. Anyone else see this yet?

It's not out in the U.S. until the 28th, but I will definitely see it(though i'll probably see White House Down first)

I hope this one female-centered comedy that JB actually likes.
