The Boss

The Boss
Starring:
Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Bell, and Peter Dinklage


Rated: R for sexual content, language and brief drug use.
Reviewed by: Dave  
Release date:  April 8, 2016 Released by: Universal Studios, Inc.

Absurd and redundant describes a tortuous The Boss featuring Melissa McCarthy. Once again, capitalizing on her 'BIG' name  - McCarthy pumps out another paint-by-numbers comedy, which should have been a direct to DVD endeavor.
 
Her films rely so much on physical humor, that some scenes could be interchanged with those from other previous movies. McCarthy is in danger of becoming a 'One Trick Pony' female version of John Belushi verging on the downslide, or worst yet, Chris Farley.

When there are more laughs in a Mike and Molly television episode, it's time for Melissa McCarthy to step back, and re-evaluate her potentially fading career. The Boss is a stinker only Pepé Le Pew would find Odor-able.
