    Melissa Ann McCarthy was born on August 26, 1970 in Plainfield, Illinois, United States.

    Years ago, she was considered by the New York Times as one of the best 20 best actresses of the XXI century.

    Mainly a comedy actress, she has also acted in a few dramas such as St. Vincent.

    This girl has countless awards, including a Primetime Emmy for Mike & Molly (2010-2016), and has been nominated for BAFTAs, Golden Globes, and even two Academy Awards…

    Around here, we have seen her in several movies that… we recommend if you like her humor. She is this kind of actress with a personality that by herself overshadows the plot a little bit, and the role goes according to her character and her previous movies.

    Her personality is a registered trademark, like Martin Cid Magazine this July.

    Her movies include: The Starling (2021) and her new comedy series on Netflix, God’s Favorite Idiot (2022).

    Movie Reviews

    With a predictable trajectory and cringeworthy metaphors, ‘The Starling’ is so slushily sentimental it makes the typical tearjerker look like a noir.


    “An astonishingly treacly film that’s meant to be inspirational but is something close to agony to sit through”  


    “[It] expends so much energy trying to tug at your heartstrings that it never bothers to develop a pulse of its own. It’s a stubbornly shallow film (…) It’s a visually flat film (…) Rating: ?½ (out of 4)”
