A titan of industry is sent to prison after she's caught 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.
The story follows Michelle Darnell, a titan of industry who is sent to prison for insider trading, denounced by her former lover, Renault, who still holds a heavy grudge towards her for their breakup, after getting a promotion a few years ago. After doing her time, Michelle emerges, ready to re-brand herself as America's latest sweetheart, but not everyone she steamrolled is not so quick to forgive and forget. With nowhere to go and no one to scam, Michelle is forced to move in with former assistant Claire and her young daughter, Rachel. Now at her lowest point, Michelle wastes no time in devising a winner-take-all plan to rebuild her empire..
There is a limited amount of time that one's assets can be frozen by the government. Since Michelle is an ex-felon and not a parolee (there is no parole in the federal prison system) the adjudication of her sentence is down and her assets would have been released. Even if the government seized some as fines and retribution for any possible victims, Michelle should have more than enough assets to remain wealthy, including deferred compensation. See more »
If you like Melissa McCarthy, you will like this silly movie. Silly is the operative word here. Not meant to be realistic or dramatic. I enjoyed the performances of lighthearted comedy. Parts are a bit aggressive but not violent. Silly climax, silly plot, silly movie. I didn't love it but I liked it a lot!
