A titan of industry is sent to prison after she's caught insider trading. When she emerges ready to rebrand herself as America's latest sweetheart, not everyone she screwed over is so quick to forgive and forget.
Following a ghost invasion of Manhattan, paranormal enthusiasts Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates, nuclear engineer Jillian Holtzmann, and subway worker Patty Tolan band together to stop the otherworldly threat.
The story follows Michelle Darnell, a titan of industry who is sent to prison for insider trading, denounced by her former lover, Renault, who still holds a heavy grudge towards her for their breakup, after getting a promotion a few years ago. After doing her time, Michelle emerges, ready to re-brand herself as America's latest sweetheart, but not everyone she steamrolled is not so quick to forgive and forget. With nowhere to go and no one to scam, Michelle is forced to move in with former assistant Claire and her young daughter, Rachel. Now at her lowest point, Michelle wastes no time in devising a winner-take-all plan to rebuild her empire..
The songs playing in the opening montage when Michelle is repeatedly sent back to the orphanage not only relate to each year but also to Michelle wanting to be loved by her adoptive family. See more »
After Michelle is released from jail she has nowhere to live and seems to have no money at all even though prior to being released she is told all her accounts had been frozen, not cleared out. It's unlikely that she would have lost all of her money for a crime whose jail sentence is only 5 months, particularly if she was significantly wealthy beforehand. See more »
If you like Melissa McCarthy, you will like this silly movie. Silly is the operative word here. Not meant to be realistic or dramatic. I enjoyed the performances of lighthearted comedy. Parts are a bit aggressive but not violent. Silly climax, silly plot, silly movie. I didn't love it but I liked it a lot!
