Academy Award®-nominated star Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids, The Heat, Tammy) headlines The Boss as a titan of industry who 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.

Directed by Ben Falcone (Tammy), the comedy is based on an original character created by McCarthy and written by McCarthy and Falcone alongside their Groundlings collaborator, Steve Mallory.

THE BOSS – In Theaters April 8
This movie looks hilarious! Melissa McCarthy has been a favorite of mine for a long time. I just love all of the deserving attention she has been receiving over the past couple of years. That being said, I will definitely be seeing this move on the big screen.
How about you? Will you be seeing The Boss while it’s in theaters?
