Legendary late-night talk show host's world is turned upside down when she hires her only female staff writer. Originally intended to smooth over diversity concerns, her decision has unexpectedly hilarious consequences as the two women separated by culture and generation are united by their love of a biting punchline.
It's a charming, intelligent movie with a lot of heart and, naturally, some killer jokes.Johnny Oleksinski, New York Post
It's a breath of fresh air, a cheeky bit of entertainment that will have the side effect of prodding other star-led comedies to try a little harder.Alissa Wilkinson, Vox
It's delightful, funny, and more than satisfying. Before the year is over, this will be one of the most beloved comedies of the year.Ethan Anderton, Slashfilm
