She is Roseanne without the irony. I just think she's crass, tries too hard, and I want her to go away.
That insipid "Identity Theft" is a total waste of celluloid, and I have and will never see her CBS sitcoms.
McCarthyians - how do I best appreciate her? Learn me!
I second that!
I want to drop a fucking house on her.
Her SNL earned rave reviews, but I didn't quite see it.
Watching a fat girl suck down a bottle of salad dressing might be funny, but it wasn't a big gut-buster.
She's amazing and now a star.
(You know she will.)
I doubt she'd even feel it, R3.
I liked her on Gilmore Girls but I don't want to have to accept fat people in HW. I see enough of them in real life.
Melissa McCarthy was second banana to Lauren Graham on Gilmore Girls.
Now Melissa has the white hot career, Oscar nod and Emmy on her shelf.
Wonder how Lauren feels about all of this.
She is funny...that's all. R8 I don't like Lauren at al so I hope that she is jealous.
Rebel Wilson is going to steal all her thunder this year.
She stinks on ice. Hate her. Roseanne was so much better in every way!
she is actually very funny(Bridesmaids, SNL)-less so on her sitcom which is poorly written
The problem is that they dont know what to do with her so they only want to use her as a female John Belushi (fat, gross, socially inappropriate, etc) Yes, that movie with Jason Bateman looks painfully lame-but wait until you see the trailer of her buddy cop movie with Sandra Bullock-your head will explode
She grosses me out. Don't watch anything she is in.
"Rebel Wilson is going to steal all her thunder this year."
Rebel already has thunder. Did you not see those thighs?
Tiffani Fat Face Thiessen has more fat in her face than Melissa has in her whole body.
Not a fan but I will give her credit for receiving an Academy Award nomination for shitting in a sink.
I liked her on Gilmore Girls.
Relax. She's only a sitcom star, she's not running for office. If you don't like her, don't watch her. Very simple. You whiny queens on here need to get a life.
I think she's a good actress, and her character in Bridesmaids was basically what made the movie worth watching for me. I've never seen Mike and Molly because I don't like sitcoms.
But in interviews and such, she seems like she could be kind of mean in real life. But I obviously don't know her.
She is not a good actress. She relies too much on her fatness...
I don't think she was as funny in Bridesmaids. She was uncomfortable to watch, and never watched her sitcom.
I watched Gilmore Girls and only today, found out that she was Lorelai's fat friend/co worker. She is not memorable, unless she uses her fatness to garner attention.
Excuse me, but she's fatter than Roseanne ever was. But, unlike Roseanne, she also seems nice AND sane. I like her.
She was hilarious on her Daily Show interview actors are usually so boring but she made me lol a few times.
She was funny in Bridesmaids.
But her "I'm-a-fattie-who's-coming-on-to-you" schtick wears thin very quickly.
She does try too hard, and I'm tired of seeing her.
I do find her husband oddly attractive, and would like to see more of him.
I think she's really talented and likable. OP hates anyone who's fat.
OP,hope you conquer your own food issues.
I think Melissa is funny and very intelligent - a good, genuine person. T
That horrendous Mike n Molly is awful but it must pay rent and college fund for her girls.
No OP, you are not the only one. We went to see Les Miz and had to endure not one but two McCarthy trailers.. back to back!
Cannot stand her.
[quote]Tiffani Fat Face Thiessen
MM's Identity Theft movie looks terrible.
Why the hate? She's a sweetheart! (I was an improv classmate of hers when she was first starting out & remember her saying how she'd visit her cousin's set, watching from the wings, thinking to herself, "I can do that." It took a lot of hard work on her part from bit cameos to where she is now. She's capable of creating some very funny moments.
NYTimes movie critic loved her in Identity Thief - and described her body as "expansive"
I love her and I like to look at her - the only reason I am planning to see Identity Thief is that I like the poster and also because she is starring in it
I think she is gorgeous !
I can't tell what her personality is actually like, however, she comes across adorable and cuddly to me !
As the nytimes described her face, a "kewpie doll" !
Compared to Melissa McCarthy Rebel Wilson is about as funny as, as, as, Tommy Lee Jones.
My fave fatties hall of fame are........
She was really funny and nice on Jimmy Kimmel the other night. She used to be a cheerleader.
I like Melissa McCarthy. I don't watch her sitcom but even the bits I've seen you can tell she's way better than the material.
She's hilarious in Bridesmaids. Just watch her final scene with Kristen Wiig if you want to know if she can act. Her comedy comes from a place that is authentic to the character, she strikes a really delicate tone with it.
Won't see Identity Theft but do look forward to her and Bullock together.
Some scenes in the movie trailer with Bullock are funny, but most of them seem forced and too fake.
Used to be a cheerleader? How did she become so fat?
Then again, I used to be a drum major, and I'm no prize myself, anymore.
I saw previews for that and knew it was a bomb, very unfunny.
I have no reason to dislike her. However I don't understand why people think she is funny
The woman who plays Phyllis on "The Office" used to be a cheerleader and a professional dancer.
Roseanne vs. Melissa? Ha ha ha ha ha.
You stopped noticing Roseanne's weight as that series grew in brilliance, but with McCarthy that's all I see - she's fat and not so funny.
Roseanne was very critical of the world around her, Melissa just goes along with it. Which is the difference between baby boomers and Gen X, one are critical thinkers, the others are not.
She was awesome in Samantha Who.
I hate that instead of creating their own brand of humor, women comedians are going along with the sophomoric gross out and scatological boys club type of humor.
She is talented and she's pretty. I worry about her fat problem and I'm very sure she worries about it too.
She's a vulgarian!
Mary Beth Hurt
Hmmmm, Roseanne is a miserable insane bitch who is ungrateful and mean to everyone - so, I guess they are quite different. And Roseanne stopped being funny well over a decade ago - plus she thinks she has the answer to every problem in the world.
Melissa is a nice funny actress who is simply doing her job and as far as I can tell not making everyone around her suffer or pray for her death.
Very different indeed.
She her teen and early adult years in the shadow of her popular blonde cousin Jenny. No wonder she got fat.
I never saw bridesmaids before she was on snl. I died laughing. The sketch where she sent flowers and candy to herself was funny. The Hidden Valley one made me pee my pants. Her just sitting there with a spock sweatshirt....."50 dollars? Oh my god, I could really use that money, it could really get me out of a couple of jams."
Never heard of her.
I didn't see Bridesmaids before I saw her on SNL either, and I thought she was hilarious. That was one of the best eps of the season. I don't dislike her at all, nor do I feel there is a reason to.
[quote]Am I the only gay who dislikes...
Moron alert!!!!!! Yes, OP, you're the only one. Is that what you're hoping for? You're very special.
She's fearless and it's amazing to watch. I would have been fine with her winning the Oscar, in fact I voted for her.
I turn off my TV anytime her fat face appears on. She is NOT funny!
Tired of her throwing her fat around on screen, in hopes that the audience laughs.
This woman bears no comparison to Roseanne, Roseanne is on another stratosphere in terms of comedic brilliance.
Rondi Reed owns Mike and Molly, and should be the one with the Emmy.
I could never stand Roseanne. Melissa McCarthy, while not a favorite of mine, is funny and has a bit of charm, too.
She is Jenny McCarthy's first cousin. Jenny gave her her start as a PA on her sketch show.
I rather like this little gem of indie sci-fi called the Nines. She plays "Melissa McCarthy, the actress from Gilmore Girls" in it too. Very post-modern
She's just not funny, simple as that. She's a one-note actor and not a good one.
no fat chicks
Don't hate her because she's fat, hate her because she's so not-funny.
This is the same actress that got an Oscar nomination for a film where she takes a dump in a sink. Oy Vay!
yes, you are the only one.
no, he's not; I don't think she's particularly funny, but America seems to love her.
She'll be 43 this year. Late bloomer.
First cousin to "actress" Jenny McCarthy. See the resemblance?
