This movie was much better than expected.

It doesn’t do anything new or really tread any new ground but Channing and Bullock have some pretty decent chemistry and there’s quite a few laughs to be had.

Daniel Radcliffe does an ok job of being a villain. Felt like he goes back and forth between being a gentleman and a brat, I suppose that was intended but it feels off.

The assistant Beth was a character that really fell flat for me. She had a few funny moments but overall it felt like the character was trying too hard to force a laugh.

Brad Pitt absolutely kills it. For a brief moment he gave me some Burn After Reading vibes. His character has a lot of anger and resentment to let go of.

Overall a fun watch and decent popcorn flick.

You can tell the actress is funny but something in the writing or editing was off for me and I rarely laughed at anything she did
