vulgar R rated jokes
Melissa McCarthy uses her same vulgar R rated sex jokes and innuendo's in The Boss. It starts off entertaining and has it's share of really funny moments throughout. Annie Mumolo; co-writer of Bridesmaid's co-stars in this movie as Melissa's nemesis. Annie also had a cameo in Bridesmaids on the airplane sitting beside Kristen Wiig. Nice to see her get a bigger role. I wanted to give the movie 4 stars but the last 20 minutes really are truly ridiculous and not even funny. I guess that's the trick of comedy it's either really good or fails epically, given the movie as a whole and more positive moments, I can forgive the silly ending. I still think Identity Thief, Spy and Bridesmaids are probably her 3 best comedies to date. The movie is worth a watch if you are a fan of Melissa McCarthy's humor. If you don't normally like her humor, this will offer you nothing.
