Melissa McCarthy knows her stuff. She can crack through a decent script like few comedy performers today, and when given the safety net of a talented ensemble she can make most films work. Tammy and Spy were uneven, as was The Heat, but she was the best thing in them.
And we’ve one more McCarthy-led comedy before Ghostbusters goes nuts next year. The Boss has the actress as America’s richest woman falling on hard times with a prison sentence for insider trading. Bankrupt but not finished she goes to work on a smaller enterprise – check out the trailer to see what that’s all about…
Kristen Bell, Peter Dinklage, and Kathy Bates line up.
There’s high-schoolers gang fighting and the occasional rude word, so consider this NSFW.
Synopsis Mr. President?
Melissa McCarthy headlines The Boss as a titan of industry who is sent to prison after she’s caught for 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.
