Two female friends with very different ideals decide to start a beauty company together. One is more practical, while the other wants to earn her fortune and live a lavish lifestyle.
Comedy - This is a sometimes raunchy and crude comedy aimed at women, and fans of leads Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne will have plenty to enjoy here. Salma Hayek also has a juicy supporting role as the villain. Constant language, sex talk, drug use, and crude gags make the film not for kids.

PROFANITY: 22 F-words; 16 S-words; many others. SEX/NUDITY: A vagina-shaped cake. VIOLENCE: Comic hits and falls. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol and marijuana. ACTION: None. COMEDY: Silly banter and wisecracks, often raunchy; silly physical gags, sometimes crude; drug humor.
Roger EbertFull Review Poor There's very little of the effervescent brashness that has made Haddish such a joy to watch over the past few years. Similarly, Byrne has shown she's game for anything and served as a sly and delightful straight woman; here, she's stuck playing the uptight voice of reason.
NY PostFull Review Above Average ...it loses its bravado halfway through and falls back on the most witless of plot devices: Karaoke, girlfights and spewed bodily fluids. ...director Miguel Arteta gets a solid half-hour of funny out of this thing before clunkiness sets in.
Rolling StoneFull Review Poor Whoever Made This Inane Comedy Should Be Fired. A lot of comic screen talent is wasted in this limp, forgetful, faux-femcentric farce. What we have here is a comedy on life support, with Haddish and Byrne valiantly performing futile acts of resuscitation. Sorry to report: The patient died.
Slant MagazineFull Review Poor Its inconsistent, half-baked characterizations would be more forgivable were they at least in the service of some inspired comedy. ...never makes a compelling case that that friendship is even worth saving because it never bothers to even make it—or anything else in the film—feel remotely genuine or meaningful in the first place.
