Melissa McBride stars in The Boss, an R-rated comedy that’s just released a restricted trailer (not safe for work or kids). The trailer kind of reminds me of the 1989 comedy Troop Beverly Hills starring Cheers‘ Shelley Long but with raunchier language, and let’s hope the funniest scenes aren’t in this teaser. Directed by Ben Falcone (Tammy), the cast also includes Kristen Bell, Peter Dinklage, and Kathy Bates. McCarthy and Falcone co-wrote the script with Steve Mallory and produced along with Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy. The Boss opens in theaters on April 8, 2016.
The Plot: Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids, Spy) 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.
