An odd mix of sentimental family warmth and gross-out antics, this comedy doesn't have the courage of its own convictions, which means that it's not quite funny enough to keep the audience fully entertained. That said, there are just about enough laughs that hit the target, and the big-hearted humour is surprisingly endearing, with larger themes that resonate even when the filmmakers get bogged down in the strained rude jokes.
Will Ferrell plays Brad, a guy who can't have kids but has always wanted to be a dad. So when he marries Sarah (Linda Cardellini), he enthusiastically dives into the stepdad role with her children (Owen Vaccaro and Scarlett Estevez). Then just as they're finally warming to him, their biological father Dusty (Mark Walhberg) turns up, clearly determined to win his family back. What follows is a battle between a too-nice dork and a super-cool biker, competing for the affections of both Sarah and the kids. Brad gets some terrible advice from his boss (Thomas Haden Church), while Dusty recruits a handyman (Hannibal Buress) to back his side.
There's plenty of potential in this premise, but the filmmakers refuse to make the decision about who the film is aimed at. It's too vulgar to be family entertainment, but it's not edgy enough to properly appeal to adults. So it sits there genially, occasionally sparking a burst of laughter or a knowing smile. But the plot never makes any sense, mainly because to make it work the filmmakers portray Brad as a complete and utter loser until the moment the movie needs him to be the good guy. All of which is painfully predictable, complete with shamelessly sappy moralising. Thankfully, the cast can play these kinds of characters effortlessly, and both Ferrell and Walhberg add details that keep the audience engaged.

From their inspired pairing on Saturday Night Live and their hysterical 2008 comedy Baby Mama to their riotous hosting of the Golden Globes, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are one of the funniest double-acts in recent memory. So even if they make a film as limp as this one, it's still packed with plenty of laughs. With a simplistic premise and obvious gags, the film isn't nearly as clever as they are. But they make it watchable.
As the title suggests, they play siblings: Kate (Fey) is a single mother with no job and nowhere to live, while Maura (Poehler) has never quite recovered from her divorce. Then their parents (Dianne Wiest and James Brolin) announce that they're selling the family home in Orlando, so Kate and Maura return to clean out their childhood bedrooms. And they're inspired to throw one last epic house party, inviting all of their old high school friends (including John Leguizamo), their school arch-nemesis (Maya Rudolph), a beefy drug dealer (John Cena) and a cute new neighbour (Ike Barinholtz).
Unsurprisingly, once the alcohol starts flowing, things get way out of hand.

Titled 'American Grit', it will follow ’16 of the country's toughest men and women as they're split into four teams and work together to face a variety of military-grade and survival-themed challenges’, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The former ‘Daily Show’ host had got involved in Cena’s match at SummerSlam on Sunday.
John Cena came face to face with Jon Stewart, the man who cost him his US title at SummerSlam, on Monday night’s edition of WWE Raw and let’s just say ‘The Daily Show’ host came off on the losing end. The 52 year old had unexpectedly decided to get involved in Cena’s match during Sunday’s SummerSlam event, delivering a chair to the gut of the WWE Superstar.
Jon Stewart got slammed by John Cena on Monday night.
Stewart had attempted to explain his actions to the Brooklyn crowd, saying he attacked Cena because he didn't want to see him equal Ric Fliar’s 16 title reigns. Cena, as the US champ, was competing in a title vs tile match with World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins and left Sunday’s event empty handed.
Jon Stewart’s first gig since leaving ‘The Daily Show’ earlier this month was as the host of WWE SummerSlam on Sunday.

Amy Schumer makes her big screen debut with a script that feels like a much-extended sketch from her TV series. It's hilariously observant and refreshingly grown-up about sex, but the plot falls back on the usual cliches. Even with some clever twists and turns, the structure is oddly predictable. But the biggest surprise is that Schumer and director Judd Apatow ultimately cave in and take a traditional approach to romance.
As she does on her show, Schumer plays a sexually frank woman called Amy. Taught by her father (Colin Quinn) to distrust monogamy, she has indulged in a commitment-free life, rarely seeing a man more than once. And her one repeat male partner (John Cena) is a rather too self-obsessed bodybuilder. Then her boss, blithely demanding magazine editor Diana (Tilda Swinton), assigns her to interview Aaron (Bill Hader), a doctor who specialises in sports injuries. Amy can't help but seduce him; it's what she does! But in the process she realises that she actually quite likes him. This idea so rattles her that she sabotages her close relationship with her sister Kim (Brie Larson), who is expecting a child with husband Tom (Mike Birbiglia).
Schumer has impeccable comic timing, and she's hilarious all the way through this film, playing on her character's riotous way of being shockingly honest at all the wrong times. In other words, the character is entertaining but never very likeable because of the thoughtless things she does and says. So our sympathies lie with Hader, who gives an unusually layered turn as a smart, sensitive and very funny guy who just might be too good for Amy. Other characters are either here to provide emotion (Larson and Quinn) or to shamelessly steal scenes (Swinton). And Apatow brings in a usual stream of big-name cameos, including Daniel Radcliffe and Marisa Tomei in a clever pastiche of a New York indie movie.

After Rollins crashed ‘The Daily Show’ last week, the comedian returned the favour on Monday night.
‘The Daily Show’s’ Jon Stewart certainly found an interesting way to even the odds last night, when he came face to face with his nemesis, WWE Superstar Seth Rollins, during Monday’s edition of 'Raw'. The late night host, who’s been embroiled in a feud with Rollins for the past few weeks, ‘went low’ on the wrestler, after things turned ugly during a sit down segment between the two.
The 'Daily Show's' Jon Stewart
It all started nearly a month ago when Rollins, who calls himself the future of the WWE, declared on 'Raw' he was now untouchable and could do anything he wanted, even take over as host of ‘The Daily Show’ and “make that thing actually watchable.”
So what would happen if Mr Money in the Bank got in the ring with the host of ‘The Daily Show’?
‘The Daily Show’s’ departing host Jon Stewart got the shock of his life on Thursday evening, when his regular ‘moment of zen’ segment was interrupted by WWE wrestler Seth Rollins. Rollins gatecrashed the long running Comedy Central talk show as part of the latest chapter in the growing rivalry between the wrestler and the late night funnymant.
Jon Stewart has made an enemy out of Seth Rollins
It all started earlier this month when Rollins called out ‘The Daily Show’ host during a promo on WWE’s Monday Night Raw. Rollins, who calls himself the future of the WWE, told the audience during the February 9th edition of 'Raw' he was now untouchable and could do anything, from getting elected President of the United States to taking over as host of ‘The Daily Show’ to “make that thing actually watchable.”
Amy enjoys her life in the big city with her comfortable apartment, wacky friends and driven job as a reporter for a men's magazine. As a young girl, her parents sadly divorced, and her father wasted no time in drumming into her that a lifelong partnership with just one person left much to be desired. So she's certainly taking her father's words literally and seems to enjoy the company of a different man every night (though never the full night); it's a life that she has no plans to change any time soon. However, something shifts in her consciousness when she meets sports doctor Aaron Connors on whom she's been commissioned to write an article. The pair hit it off right away, but after their first night together, Amy's left wondering if ending it there is really the best thing to do. It feels weird to carry on seeing someone after she's slept with them, but at the same time, she can't remember the last time she had so much fun.
