Am I the only gay who dislikes Melissa McCarthy?

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!

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.

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 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

Melissa tends to get way out of control in slapstick comedy. I think she hurt Bateman in "identity thief" by accident, and the girls from "Bridemaids".

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.

by Anonymousreply 2502/07/2013

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 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.

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" !

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 7506/15/2014

Agree that she's crass, coarse, vulgar and up feminine. Evidently her fatness is baby weight gone mad.

But I feel sorry for her -- her "stardom" -- such as it is, consists of her mouthing off and being an aggressive, in-your-face pig. The starring roles she's offered are limiting, and she's in a bind. Suppose she WANTED to lose weight, and become a normal-sized comic actress: she now has a team of hangers-on that will tell her she can't do it, that it would kill her career. So she's got to look like a fat, disgusting ox while other, prettier actresses get the glamour treatment and respect.

No OP you are not the only on here who dislike fat people. Haw dare she get all pissy because no one wants to, or is able to make a dress for a woman of her size. She really expects on of these top designers to be able to make her look nice by making her a dress? These people work with scissors, not a magic wond. She needs to realize her expectations are way to high. If she wants to look she need to give the something else to work with. She has the body of a beach ball. I like how she throws the blame in the designers hands and she plays victim. Sad birth, get on a diet and lose weight. If u lost 200 lbs and had a decent figure they'd be able to work with, they'd be chasing after you.

Well, I am a (male) Bisexual, and I CAN'T STAND MM!! But my sexual preferences has nothing at all to do with it. The gross out sophomoric frat boy humor is just that. Other posters have mentioned "white trash humor" Good analogy. "She's fat, she's gross, she's clueless, lets have several scenes where she runs, cause fat girls are cute when they run" yuck, yuck, yuck! we get it. She'll make her millions and die young of heart disease or kidney failure brought on by diabetes, and she will be fodder for tabloids with headlines like "Melissa's brave fight!" Or hey, maybe she can start a new career yo-yoing her weight like that dip-shit Kirstey Allie for Jenny Craig?

As far as I'm concerned, she ruined Bridesmaids. Hated that vulgar part she played and she seems to have been typecast. She's the female version of Vince Vaughn - always playing the same role. She should reject future vulgar roles going forward if she cares at all about her career.

She sucks the big one! In her last three movies she played 3 despicable characters without one redeeming quality. No, I only watched ID Theft and 2 minutes of the Bullock mess, but you could see a pattern. Not only were these characters horrible fat pig jerks who thought the world had wronged them, but their way to cope was by constant swearing, farting, throwing up, belching and hurting everybody in sight; physically and emotionally. Can't stand this bitch. Another gay who dislikes her, but way beyond dislike. Too bad, I did like her in Bridesmaids. I am probably the only person who thinks Bullock is a mediocre talent. Her performance in Gravity was boring and mostly ridiculous... eeny meeny miiny mo. Ha!!! One of the worst scenes ever in a movie. Shame on the academy for her nomination! Thank goodness she did not win!

No, I hate that Hollywood keeps using her as if we all like her. Her acting style has been done by many other actors over the past decade. She isnt funny. Just shows hollywood chooses who will be a star no matter what the public wants. Glad they can force her on all of us. Even great actors are becoming shitty since they have to be in these newer dumbass movies. I was stoked to hear about a new ghostbuster movie. Definitely was surprised it will be an all female cast. To be honest, thats cool! However, using Messlia has to be a joke. I won't be seeing it.

I like her. Melissa does play OTT characters but I suspect that's because that's what the public want from her. She does have more range than her recent spate of movies suggest though. She was the only decent thing in Gilmore girls (although she wasn't in it enough to make it worth watching more than twice) and she was great in Samantha Who. Neither of those characters were like the characters she plays in movies.

Plus I'd take her over her idiot cousin any day of the week.

by Anonymousreply 10806/06/2015

She doesn't play the same type on Mike and Molly. I think that's why she doesn't mind doing to movies, she knows people have gotten to see her do other things so she's okay getting type cast for the big screen.
