The Boss

Comedy


 

A motivational speaker hits rock-bottom after being arrested for insider-trading and losing her fortune, forcing her to turn to her former assistant for help.

"The Boss" is yet another venture for its vehemently foul-mouthed co-writer and star, and a certain fondness for her brand of humour is a recommended prerequisite. We have another outrageous and admittedly funny character on display, but alas her performance is bigger than the story itself. To carry a film on antics alone is a tough gig, and a promising start crumbles into a subsidiary plot and tiresome bad behaviour. This exec is a one-trick pony.
