Universal Pictures Release Date: A titan of industry Melissa McCarthy 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. See All Details and Credits. Boston Globe - Tom Russo Apr 7, The Verge - Tasha Robinson Apr 26, The script glosses over everything that's important to the characters, which makes them vague and poreless.
Some sense of specificity, about virtually anything, would be helpful for making them seem less like bare story functions and gag-delivery systems.
The Boss feels like a fun character gradually wasted. Time Out - Joshua Rothkopf Apr 10, Throughout its last hour it keeps jumping into your lap and demanding love without doing anything to earn it. If they gave out badges for smutty language, this movie would have lots. I laughed the whole time. Melissa is one of the best comedic actors right now and she does it again with this film. Big slapstick moments and smaller verbal jabs had me crying with laughter. TheQuietGamer Aug 25, Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone's follow up to Tammy doesn't break any new ground for it's comedic talent.
This is still very much a vehicle for McCarthy's vulgar brand of humor. The only difference is that it often dives into absurdist humor that clashes rather awkwardly with the regular, Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone's follow up to Tammy doesn't break any new ground for it's comedic talent. The only difference is that it often dives into absurdist humor that clashes rather awkwardly with the regular, grounded tone of the plot setup.
Yes, the humor is very much McCarthy. Admittedly that means there isn't much more to say. For her fans it's filled with a lot of laughs and chuckles, although there are moments that fall short. For those who aren't fans, yeah, don't watch. She isn't going to win you over here. Overall it's a funny McCarthy movie.
The plot's a bit jumbled, but a lot of the humor is good. The movie also treats us to a memorable Peter Dinklage performance. A decent comedy that still isn't likely to appeal to anyone other than McCarthy fans. At least those fans should be amused here. I know I was. There are many laughs to be had here, though it's not brilliant overall. The mix of physical comedy and caricature is nicely balanced, but the storyline was predictable and the pacing could have been better. The performances are great, the dilogue is witty, and the audience were entertained.
Melissa McCarthy still very talented in this role. There were some funny scenes and some silly scenes, but it doesn't fully deliver on what it could be. LeZee Jul 24, Use on opportunity, build an empire and be the boss! I always liked Melissa McCarthy films when others said they were very bad, but this time it is totally different. I won't blame her, she always gives her one hundred per cent and so for this film. But it was the terrible script that let Use on opportunity, build an empire and be the boss!
But it was the terrible script that let her down. Actually, it is a watchable film, because of her, but without her completely unimaginable. The trailer looked much better than the film. It is a comedy, but the laughs are too far, not even a little smile in your face easy to obtain.
So it seems there are plenty of negatives about it than the good. I watched it to prove the people are wrong about it, but in the end I was wrong. This is the second time the director and McCarthy together for a film who are the real life couple. But I liked 'Tammy' better, not this one and there will be one more film that I hope they would come up with much more interesting than these two.
She is not a solo type star, her films are always the multistarrer. So whenever I hear about her new films, I get curious about her new partner. Kristen Bell was not bad, even Peter Dinklage have given a nice performance. So The casting was good, but they all did not get the good script or the role.
I did not enjoy it means not that I won't recommend it. It did not work for me, but it might to you, so I advise be carefully while choosing it. KaptenVideo Dec 8, Talky but lifeless and charmless "comedy" about self-made business mogul Melissa McCarthy who goes to jail for insider trading and then bounces back, creating a cookie empire with former employee Kristen Bell.
The best that can be said about this misfire is that they try different Talky but lifeless and charmless "comedy" about self-made business mogul Melissa McCarthy who goes to jail for insider trading and then bounces back, creating a cookie empire with former employee Kristen Bell.
The best that can be said about this misfire is that they try different things — buddy comedy, a colorful person story, inspirational girl power story with swearing, later even some rom-com and action. You may laugh a couple of times but the result really is a weak, talky series of sketches that never pay off, or should not continue for minutes What's worse, the characters are super bland even Peter Dinklage and Kathy Bates are wasted and the central heroine is as soulless and kind of zombified as the whole experience feels.
Still not convinced that Melissa McCarthy can carry a movie. There's no single point that she really makes this role her own, instead of weakly impersonating Danny McBride and Vince Vaughn in their most boring movies.
Thanks to the McCarthy's current star power and marketing it as a straight comedy, it managed to get 80 mil USD from cinemas. Way more than it deserves!
Considering that McCarthy is also one of the screenwriters, and her husband Ben Falcone director and also one of the writers, it's surprising how they can't play to leading lady's strengths. Comparing to other recent big-name comedies, it's as useless as "Zoolander 2" and "Anchorman 2". Coldcat Jul 9, What a terrible movie, Not once did I laugh nor did the rest of the crowd with me.
