If McCarthy's main characters hadn't been so unlikable maybe this could have worked. Plus, the film veers wildly between heartfelt family to foul-mouthed hard R to mean-spiritedness that you can't put a bead on just what the film is trying to accomplish.

'The Boss' brings us round two of the writing/directing duo of comedy star McCarthy and her husband Falcone. Their last unfunny blunder, 'Tammy', was a hard one to sit through, and their followup is no different. It felt like I was watching a sequel to that awful turd, because the two films are so similar in tone, execution, storytelling, and (terrible) humor. I will give one positive before I continue ranting. The dramatic moments later on involving the main character learning from her mistakes do have a sweet nature to them, thanks in part to McCarthy's abilities. That's it. The rest of this movie was a never-ending bore of super-lame jokes and bad direction/editing. Every gag has already been done (in some form) hundreds of times in other films. Every crude line of dialogue sim...
