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.
Following a ghost invasion of Manhattan, paranormal enthusiasts Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates, nuclear engineer Jillian Holtzmann, and subway worker Patty Tolan band together to stop the otherworldly threat.
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..
Each of the childhood clips show Michelle Darnell having dark brown/black hair, even though Michelle later claims that red is her natural hair colour. See more »
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 »
My name is Michelle Darnell, and I am the wealthiest woman in America. How wealthy am I? I wanted to come down on a golden phoenix and I sure as shit did it!

The Boss was laugh out loud hilarious, but also heartfelt.
Melissa McCarthy strikes again – this time at a rival troupe of juvenile sweets peddlers known as the Dandelions. The Boss was laugh out loud hilarious, but also heartfelt. The bizarre cast of characters in this film provided for some absurd and funny moments, but the best scenes were between Darnell and her newest protégé – the young Rachel, who quickly became like family to the money hungry Darnell. McCarthy always excels at physical comedy, but it was her character's confidence and quick wit that carried the film. Overall, I simply loved this film.
