The BossDVD of the Week Thursday, August 4th, 2016
dvd of the week
Melissa McCarthy plays Michelle Darnell, who is some sort of combination of Martha Stewart, Paula Deen and Leona Helmsley. She talks folksy, but she is ruthless. After a stint in jail for fraud, she emerges penniless and friendless. So, she camps out at the home of her former long-suffering assistant Claire (Kristen Bell) and Claire’s daughter Rachel (Ella Anderson) and plans her comeback. The Boss is silly, slight and ultimately forgettable but it features three or four scenes that are comedy gold and make the film worth the price of a rental. One scene probably made the Girl Scouts of America apoplectic.
