Movie Review: The Boss

Allison and I have been struggling lately to find movies we want to go see. After the disappointment that was The Bronze, we figured hoped it could only go up. So this weekend we decided to see The Boss. Which we realized after we got into the theater had a worse Rotten Tomato score than The Bronze.

Plot: A titan of industry is sent to prison after she's caught insider trading. When she emerges ready to rebuild herself as America's latest sweetheart, not everyone she screwed over is so quick to forgive and forget.

Review: Allison and I were both pleasantly surprised! It was actually pretty funny - there were lots of times when the whole theater was laughing out loud. I think the scene where Michelle {Melissa McCarthy} is messing with Claire's {Kristen Bell} bra is worth the price of your ticket - any mom with kids especially will die laughing. Is it going to be nominated for an Oscar? No. Is it a fun flick? Yes!

Sounds fun!! Now that Melissa is officially signed on for the Gilmore Girls reboot, I'm feeling much more positively toward her and might actually want to support her other movies, ha!

Not at all the same, but those 'girls scouts' in their red berets made me want to watch Troop Beverly Hills! - AP

I saw it last night. I wasn't expecting much, so I wasn't disappointed, but there were definitely some LOL moments. Especially that scene! Not as funny as Tammy, but still worth watching.
