The cast and creative team are tremendously smart and talented. There are wonderful moments, but as delightful as they are, they feel like individual skits rather than a cohesive whole. A very pleasant roadtrip that could have been funnier.
While it is a pleasant enough affair as a mainstream comedy - and the cast is front-loaded with many of Poehler's best buddies from her time on the influential Saturday Night Live - the vibe is more laid-back and loose than laugh-out-loud funny.
