    This movie was just ok...

    A weird surreal story about the moon and sonic.

    I love Emma Thompson but I'm not sure why she took this role. The movie is not very funny and it is hard for me to believe that the late show host has so little interaction with their staff. Molly falls into the job and never grows in the role. I was ready to be entertained, but if you are looking for Devil Wears Prada, you won't find it here.

    Just to add some balance to the reviews: This was horrible. Just a waste of time. I lasted 47 minutes. The writing was pathetic. I can't count how many movies I've watched in my life, but I've probably only not finished a dozen on the high side.

    I knew it!!! I knew it all along Amy Ryan is too cute to be a bad guy in a movie

    Good characters, decent plot, and some decent messages/commentary. Also a good pace. It was a little scattery at times with the character and it didn't quite seem to feel like a comedy at all times, but entertaining enough.

    I love all the American Late Night Show shenanigans, I was a big fan of the Late Night Wars back in 2010. I also have an unhealthy obsession with NBC and Rockefeller Plaza so I was imagining the inner workings of the Conan debacle. Emma and Mindy plaid their roles to perfection.

    To say this plot has been done before is an understatement. But the biggest problem is that the "past her prime" Late Night host is neither relatable nor likable. Even casting a talent-less tool as the rising star vying for her job couldn't create enough sympathy to make this movie work. Asking us to root for her to keep a job she was lucky to have as long as she did, was like expecting us to hope Ebeneezer Scrooge fire's Bob Cratchit to give himself a raise. (Mindy, you're better than this!)

    Enjoyed this more than I expected. Was lighthearted and a feel good underdog wins story. Great cast!

    Surprisingly blown away! I will say I went into this movie with mediocre expectations... I wanted an easy to watch Mindy Kaling movie that provided me with a few cheap laughs and feel good moments. Emma Thompson serves up a phenomenal and most importantly incredibly believable character while Mindy is the down to earth, driven, oddball young woman we all secretly feel like we are inside. I finished the movie with a smile on my face and feeling like I've had a real look into the world of late night television. Truly shocked at my admiration for this film.
