Conclusion: 1/5
I found this to be very disappointing film. There is nothing enjoyable about this. I just found it all to be too heavy handed. Watching this I felt that both Melissa McCarthy and Chris O’Dowd couldn’t be bothered to act. I couldn’t have been more bored watching this film.
Although it tries to deal with the issue of the loss of a child, I found that it did not move me.
