This is the fluffy, harmless, multigenerational PG comedy you are flipping through streaming services hoping for this holiday weekend.

It was very laid-back, but the chemistry between McCarthy and the male lead was actually there and they were fun together. I wouldn't have minded those two characters in a movie without James Corden-as-AI.

A slightly poignant bit was the President character was a very Hilary-esque woman, like a movie from an alternate universe that had a much better last four years than ours did.

So much for Tesla not paying for advertising. The product placement in this was not subtle.
