The Boss Melissa McCarthy MovieSpoon.com

[dropcap]M[/dropcap]elissa McCarthy stars in the slapstick comedy The Boss, premiering today. Her last lead in a feature was the 2015 hit Spy, which pulled in $110.8 million. Spy received a 94% “fresh” rating on RottenTomatoes.com, however, while so far The Boss has received a dismal 18% “rotten” score. If The Boss falls on its face, McCarthy always has Ghostbusters (premiering July 15, 2016) to pull her out of the hole.

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.

McCarthy is joined in The Boss by an all-star cast led by Kristen Bell, Peter Dinklage and Kathy Bates. 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.

When she suffers a career-ending injury, Dominika and her mother are facing a bleak and uncertain future. That is why she finds herself manipulated into becoming the newest recruit for Sparrow School, a secret intelligence service that trains exceptional young people like her to use their bodies and minds as weapons. After enduring the perverse and sadistic training process, she emerges as the most dangerous Sparrow the program has ever produced. Dominika must now reconcile the person she was with the power she now commands, with her own life and everyone she cares about at risk, including an American CIA agent who tries to convince her he is the only person she can trust.
