Mike and Molly “Molly Makes Soup” Review

mike and molly

Mike and Molly “Molly Makes Soup” Season 1 Episode 14 – Mike and Molly is sweet and funny. Melissa McCarthy is adorable, (I could be biased though as I ADORED her in Gilmore Girls) and in this episode “Molly Makes Soup” she plays the part of the angry/annoyed girlfriend perfectly.

I can say that, I’m a woman.

When Mike is presented with tickets to a basketball game from Vince, Molly’s mother’s boyfriend, he accepts (in his defense, they are awesome tickets – third row behind the home bench… Even I would consider going to that game!) without thinking through how Molly will react.

Vince isn’t your typical “boyfriend” material – he’s crass, loud, and talks about sex (with and without Molly’s mother) more than anyone EVER needs to. Needless to say, Molly is not a fan. She plays the “it’s your decision” card to Mike about him taking the tickets, with an annoyance that both men and women watching the show will understand.

“Molly Makes Soup”, titled for the opening scene where Molly does in fact make soup, was a decent half our of comedy. It didn’t leave me laughing hilariously but the scenes where Mike was attempting to
figure out if Molly WOULD really be mad if he went to the game was pretty funny.

The poor guy just couldn’t win! Carl and Mike had a conversation about Molly and I think Carl phrased it perfectly when talking about relationships – “You’re trying to deal with this with reason and logic, which women don’t use in these situations.” That quote is probably WAY wrong, but you get the gist.

And it’s so true!! McCarthy played the annoyed girlfriend perfectly from the hundred times that she told Mike to “have fun” to the “it’s your decision” – She was the funniest part of this episode.

Just when you think that Molly may actually come around and start to tolerate (I don’t think she will ever LIKE) Vince (and that Mike will be out of the doghouse), Vince proposes to her mother!

What say you? What did you think of Mike and Molly this week? I’d love to hear your comments!
