Critic Reviews of "The Boss"The AtlanticJuly 22, 2016
The Boss is sketch comedy, with none of the lines colored in.Chicago ReaderApril 21, 2016
Dinklage is awful as the foppish villain, and aside from one uproarious, ad-libbed riff, McCarthy seems to be on autopilot.Tribune News ServiceApril 13, 2016
An opportunity to watch a comedic performer at the top of her game revel boldly in her own confident weirdness.New YorkerApril 11, 2016
The movie is all too neat a package for McCarthy's exuberantly inventive comic artistry.Time OutApril 10, 2016
Even though The Boss is co-written by McCarthy and her husband, director Ben Falcone (who should know his wife's strengths better), the film often strands its title character in shrill one-note caricature, mostly unchallenged.Christian Science MonitorApril 08, 2016
I persist in believing that Melissa McCarthy is capable of starring in a movie that not only makes a scads of money but is -- you know -- good. The latest refutation of my belief is The Boss.TheShiznit.co.ukJanuary 01, 2017
You can put Melissa McCarthy in pretty much anything and expect to see it elevated as a result. Certainly she does this here: it'd be nothing at all without her. But even with her it's not enough.Daily StarDecember 31, 2016
McCarthy is a brilliant physical comedian. But boy, does she need a decent director.Sunday Times (UK)December 18, 2016
[McCarthy is] deliciously dry, harsh, funny, a fine physical comedian. She excels as weird supporting characters... Since her early films, however, she's tried to push herself as an improbable leading woman.Movie HabitDecember 12, 2016
Te movie's principal strategy (streaming profanity in inappropriate places) feels so familiar, it's a non-starter.Antagony & EcstasyDecember 04, 2016
The Boss is not actually good. Melissa McCarthy is actually great in it, however.
