Film Review: Melissa McCarthy Really Proves She is ‘The Boss’

9 April 2016 7:39 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – If anything, “The Boss” is a bigger testimony to Melissa McCarthy’s status as a comic superpower than her breakthrough role in “Bridesmaids.” That one had a veritable treasure trove of comedic talent, while McCarthy has considerably less to work with here.

She single handedly drags this movie kicking and screaming into the realms of watchability based on her comic charisma alone.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

McCarthy plays Michelle Darnell, the kind of self made mogul who gives bombastic get rich seminars and sells out the United Center in the process. Apart from one scene involving McCarthy in a dental brace that’s simultaneously interesting and horrifying, the first third of the film is pretty much all setup and a bit of a slog to get through.

She’s sent to prison for insider trading, and emerges broke, friendless, and homeless. She crashes on the couch of her long suffering assistant Claire »

Movie Review: McCarthy's Talents Not Enough to Rescue Latest Limp Comedy

8 April 2016 2:07 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'The Boss' movie: Melissa McCarthy funny only with certain directors, the right material. 'The Boss' movie review: Melissa McCarthy founders in husband Ben Falcone's 'limp comedy' At this point no one would dispute that Melissa McCarthy is one of the funniest people on the planet. However, after the limp comedies Tammy and now The Boss, there is something else not in dispute: Melissa McCarthy is funny only with certain filmmakers and with scripts that would work even without the benefit of her gifts. One can imagine Bridesmaids and Spy being perfectly fine comedies had someone been cast other than McCarthy. Add her physicality, ad-lib abilities, and razor-sharp timing and you've got two films that were among the funniest of their respective years (McCarthy even earned a well-deserved Oscar nod for Bridesmaids). The Boss is McCarthy's second film directed by Ben Falcone. The first was Tammy which, »

Kristen Bell: ‘The Boss’ scene when she feels up Melissa McCarthy ‘got real intimate real quick’

8 April 2016 1:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Melissa McCarthy’s new comedy had her getting very familiar with co-star Kristen Bell. In The Boss, which opens in theaters today, there’s a scene that has the two actresses in a lengthy session of feeling each other up (with their shirts still on — don’t get too excited guys). Surely making that scene all the weirder was the fact that their director was Ben Falcone, McCarthy’s husband. Falcone directed the film about Michelle Darnell, a character McCarthy created for The Groundlings. After Darnell, a wealthy media mogul, loses everything when she’s convicted for insider trading, she turns to former assistant Claire (Bell), who reluctantly takes her in. While Darnell lives in Claire’s apartment, she starts a for-profit girls club fundraising enterprise with Claire’s daughter, putting them in ruthless competition with a Girl Scouts-esque group as they sell Claire’s delicious brownies. Bell talked with »

Movie Review – The Boss (2016)

8 April 2016 9:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Boss, 2016.

Directed by Ben Falcone.

Starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Bell, Ella Anderson, Peter Dinklage, Tyler Labine, Cecily Strong, Kristen Schaal, Ben Falcone, and Kathy Bates.

Synopsis :

A titan of industry 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.

Melissa McCarthy is a talented comedian and actress, provided she is given direction by actual competent filmmakers. The Boss however, is the next lazily constructed feature from her and her husband Ben Falcone (2014’s dreadful Tammy), based on another character from McCarthy’s past comedy sketches). Putting it bluntly, these two seem to be incapable of creating a movie with value, which is somewhat shocking considering McCarthy is essentially the muse of director Paul Feig (yes, I know Ghostbusters looks terrible, but that »

The Boss Review

6 April 2016 1:12 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Somewhere on the Melissa McCarthy Rating Scale, between Tammy (lowest) and The Heat (highest), lives The Boss – hubby Ben Falcone’s latest McCarthy-driven comedy. The film reeks of Get Hard‘s atmospheric influence, minus the overtly unfunny racism, which should come as no surprise since it’s a Gary Sanchez production that fails on many of the same levels.

Falcone’s knuckle-headed strain of humor dives into weird realms of adults clotheslining teenagers, or boyfriends chivalrously offering to suck-off strangers as a distraction, but coming off the razor-sharp heels of Spy, McCarthy’s riches-to-rags buffoonery stinks like a stale, knock-off perfume. When she’s on, this go-getter slays audiences – just expect those moments to be muffled by T-Pain cameos and soaring golden eagles.

McCarthy stars as Michelle Darnell, a self-made businesswoman who clawed her way to international infamy. While ascending to greatness, Darnell made a few enemies, one of whom »

Film Review: ‘The Boss’

6 April 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

One hopes never to have to tell a couple, “Man, that’s one ugly baby,” but it’s hard to avoid in the case of “The Boss,” the second big-screen love child conceived by Melissa McCarthy and her director husband, Ben Falcone (after 2014’s mediocre “Tammy”). As she demonstrated with her career-high comic showcase in last year’s “Spy,” McCarthy remains one of the funniest actors alive — a truth that frequently rescues, but doesn’t really redeem, this sloppy comedy about a ruthless, self-absorbed ex-ceo trying to recover her millions with the help of her former lackey (the always appealing Kristen Bell). As expected, the road to success is paved with violent pratfalls, tired vulgarities and forced lump-in-the-throat moments; save for the few folks who wandered in expecting a Bruce Springsteen biopic, audiences will probably lap it up.

As scripted by McCarthy, Falcone and actor-turned-writer Steve Mallory, “The Boss” represents »

Melissa McCarthy Admits She’s Not ‘The Boss’ at Home

29 March 2016 6:36 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Melissa McCarthy had a true-life confession on the red carpet at Monday night’s premiere of Universal’s “The Boss” at the Regency Village Theatre.

“I try to boss my kids around, but it doesn’t work,” she admitted of her relationship with her two daughters, who are 7 and 5.

McCarthy — whose spouse Ben Falcone directed the comedy — also admitted that she had some sympathy for her Michelle Darnell character, who spends most of the movie bossing people around.

“I don’t think she’s a horrible boss — she just wants people to work hard,” McCarthy added. “You have to play a character with real ups and downs.”

Ella Anderson, 11, who plays the daughter of Kristen Bell‘s character, said there wasn’t any question as to her favorite part of the movie.

“We had a three-day fight scene with the Girl Scouts and it was so much fun,” she added. »

Voltron: Legendary Defender Arrives on Netflix June 10

27 March 2016 1:28 PM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

Friday, March 25, 2016 – Live from the packed WonderCon 2016 Voltron panel, executive Producer Joaquim Dos Santos (The Legend of Korra, Avatar: The Last Airbender), Co-Executive Producer Lauren Montgomery (The Legend of Korra), and writer Tim Hedrick (The Legend of Korra, Avatar: The Last Airbender) sat alongside newly unveiled cast members to showcase never-before-seen artwork and footage of DreamWorks Animation’s all-new Netflix Original Series Voltron: Legendary Defender, debuting June 10, 2016.

Dos Santos shared “As children of the 80’s who grew up with Voltron what was there not to love? You had 5 awesome lions, piloted by 5 awesome heroes who combined to form a giant, sword wielding Titan! It unapologetically married Sci-fi and Fantasy in one incredibly over the top, bombastic package. Fans of the new series [Voltron: Legendary defender] can look for us to keep all those elements but also expect a much more fleshed out universe with a rich backstory and characters who will evolve over the course of the series. »

Voltron: Legendary Defender First Look

26 March 2016 8:21 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Huge fan of this series so there may be a bit of nerd out in some of this, there’s your disclaimer. So having been a fan of Voltron since the first time I heard the voice of Optimus Prime introducing them I’m very happy to see that a new series, Voltron: Legendary Defender, is set to debut. But to put a bit of icing on it it’s going to be on Netflix. So there have been several series telling us the story of five pilots ripping through space in robotic giant lions that can form an even larger mecha know as Voltron.  Now the last one that aired was on Nickelodeon and despite starting strong it ended on some weak sauce crap. Sorry for that bit but I warned you earlier.

So the synopsis reads,

Five unsuspecting teenagers, transported from Earth into the middle of a sprawling intergalactic war, »

The Boss Movie Releases Telling Pictures For McCarthy/Falcone Vanity Nonsense Follow To Tammy

16 March 2016 5:23 PM, PDT | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

In Hollywood, when you string together a lot of hits (and/or projects that offer a solid Roi), you obviously get a lot of perks that go along with the money. You can be a lot more picky about your roles, people fall all over themselves to get on your good side, and (apparently) your husband becomes a writer/director, if that’s something that interests you.

In Melissa McCarthy‘s case, that means that Ben Falcone is a name we’re going to hear a lot more, but it’s a safe bet that it’s only going to be when McCarthy puts her name on it.

Which isn’t to say that the duo might not put out a few decent flicks, but Tammy wasn’t just awful, McCarthy and Falcone apparently still think it’s a win. That means the future isn’t at all clear.

25 great movie comedies that run for 90 minutes or less

2 March 2016 1:52 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Need a good laugh, but only got an hour and a half? Might we recommend this little lot...

I’m of the firm belief that films work most effectively when their runtime is 90 minutes or less. It forces an economy of story and dialogue which propels the film into its best self. No bloated middle, extended ending, or wasted stories here. This goes double for comedies. They should never outstay their welcome. But they seem to be getting longer, as we recently pointed out here.

So to refresh your movie comedy palette, here are 25 films that are 90 minutes or under. I’ve tried to avoid the more obvious ones, and shine a light on those comedies which might have gone a bit unappreciated over the years, but are well worth a hour and a half of your time. This lean runtime isn’t a guarantee of greatness of course, »

How The X-Files Paid Tribute to Those It Lost in "Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster"

1 February 2016 6:01 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

When The X-Files returned to Fox, it brought more than just Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) back with it. Eagle-eyed fans can tell you this. In "Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster," not only did the show bring back stoner characters played by Tyler Labine and Nicole Parker, but it also cast Alex Diakun in a new role, featured Mulder in red briefs (never forget) and had callbacks to Scully being immortal, her dog and the 1970s series Kolchak: The Night Stalker. And that's not all. Two familiar names were featured on tombstones in the graveyard: Kim Manners and Jack Hardy. Manners directed more than 50 episodes of The X-Files and Hardy served as the first Ad on Millennium and The X-Files: I »
