No consensus yet.
Melissa McCarthy remains as fiercely talented as ever, but her efforts aren't enough to prop up the baggy mess of inconsistent gags and tissue-thin writing that brings down The Boss.

Fans of Melissa Mccarthy will enjoy this ridiculous but highly amusing movie!
It's almost as if the weight of the entire film rested on lead McCarthy and despite her array of zingers and antics that make for some edgy laughs it becomes an exhausting endeavor even for her shoulders. When stripped of this, the Boss lies naked as another comedy with a forgettable story.
There are parts of the premise that set up laughs that stand out (the Girl Scout brawl for one) but despite solid performances from even the supporting cast there are too many thrown-together storytelling elements that inhibit the film from breaking the mold of it's genre.
Pretty lame. A few funny parts, but bloody hell, those turtlenecks! I get the joke, but I wanted to rip them off her every scene.
Beginning with a slight nod to recent headlines involving the over-the-top antics of the rich and famous, this slight riff never rises above skit-on-SNL level, despite the talents of the participants involved. The best bit? An all out girl-on-girl scout gang fight, which alone should justify your time.
