The Boss is the latest comedy from Melissa McCarthy about a lady business titan who is sent to prison for insider trading. Not everyone she screwed was not very forgiving after emerging from prison and started to rebranded herself as America’s business sweetheart; they were not quick to forget and forgive. Like Martha Stewart she is able to rise and rebrand with the help of a business associate and daughter selling cookies door to door.
Like most of Melissa McCarthy’s brand of comedy, The Boss is R rated peppered slapsticks with crude but funny jokes, touchy situations about family and friendship. It is about a mean businesswoman seeing her mistakes and learning to find compassion and friendship with people around her. There are funny parts but there are a lot of crude and raunchy situations and some jokes are forced.
If your type of movie is about serious topics this movie may not be appropriate for you but if you just want to laugh for a while then is definitely recommended. It is not as funny compared to some of her movies but she is known to sometimes make silly movies; this is not one of her best.
It stars Melissa McCarthy as The Boss Michelle Darnell, Kristen Bell as Claire the business friend who helped The Boss rebrand, Peter Dinklage as Renault and Katy Bates in a minor role as Ida (she is a regular in Melissa McCarthy’s movies). Written by Melissa McCarthy with Ben Falcone and Steve Mallory; directed by Ben Falcone.
