REVIEW: THE BOSS


Storyline
A titan of industry is sent to prison after she's caught insider trading. When she emerges ready to rebrand herself as America's latest sweetheart, not everyone she screwed over is so quick to forgive and forget. But she was determined to recover all .

Staring:
Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Bell, Peter Dinklage

Pros And Cons:
Melissa McCarthy has made a deserved name for her crassness and crudeness. I found her raw humor in Bridesmaids and The Heat to be extremely entertaining. But this movie, which presents her as a businesswoman in the mold of Martha Stewart, does her a disservice. What set McCarthy apart in the movies where she shines is that she's the one being crass and crude, surrounded by more normal people who make her stand out. In this movie, everyone seems to be trying to be just as crass and crude, if not more so, including the numerous girls playing Girl-Scout-like cookie sellers who get into a street brawl over cookie-selling territory. Poorly written movie. Not funny. Despite that, the movie is doing well in the box office. It's hard to imagine the audiences for this. Too crude to take kids. Not enough adult humor for adults.

Rating: 2/5 Stars ⭐️⭐️
