WATCH YOUR ASSETS.
Wall Street tycoon Michelle Darnell (Melissa McCarthy) loses everything; after a stint in prison, she moves in with her former assistant (Kristen Bell) and tries to build a new empire… As in most movies by McCarthy and her husband Ben Falcone, the star’s talents are well employed – this looks like a typical 1980s comedy where Chevy Chase is fun to watch even if the material is disappointing. Completely uninteresting premise where McCarthy’s character learns the value of having a family, but worth a giggle or two – and her look is perfect for the part.
