mostly serves as a stage for Bell and McKinnon -- both of whom so often act as the loose cannons in their other projects, like 22 Jump Street
, respectively -- to one-up each other for increasingly bigger laughs. (Both starred in last year's Office Christmas Party
, but did not share any screen time.) Bell is a bull in a comedy china shop, barreling through scenes with mad, hammy energy. There is infinite joy to be gotten from the (quite frankly) awe-inspiring
amount of dick jokes she can tell. McKinnon, on the other hand, immediately dominates every scene she is in, improvising to twist it into something oddly hilarious and uniquely Kate McKinnon. And if she sometimes feels like she is acting in a different movie than everyone else, she leans so far into her jokes that you happily take the ride with her. Because who cares, as long as it's funny?
