The Wrap

The curious thing about “The Boss,” the second film that Melissa McCarthy has made with her husband Ben Falcone as writer-director (following “Tammy” in 2014), is how little it seems to be working to amuse. There are nearly no laughs in this picture, and in a movie that bills itself as a comedy, usually you can see the performers working for laughs of some kind at least part of the time.

The story is too old to be commented.
