I find the beginning of the film a little bit slow but after about 15-20 minutes, it began to get interesting. Most of the actors/actresses are faces I haven't seen before which means I should go out more! There are two familiar faces, however - one is Melissa McCarthy who plays the role of Sookie St. James in the series, Gilmore Girls and two, Rose Byrne (how can one forget the lady who made love with Brad Pitt in the film, Troy?).
Quite interestingly, the looks of the women aren't overly glamourised which makes it very easy for me to relate to them. There are exaggerated scenes which I find to be completely over-the-top...and yet so interesting I carried on watching! Nobody behaves the way some of the characters behaved in this movie but then it is a movie, isn't it? I guess that's what makes it a dynamite, the unbelievably chaotic scenes which I can only describe as mental. Yes, very.
Overall, I have no complaints. It is absolutely hilarious! It really did crack me up. I would definitely watch it again. In fact, I've been thinking of watching it again tonight, with a box of yummy chocolates!
