If I have to think about it, it's not really funny.
10 January 2020 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

It has it funny moments and it's a great message, but it's not that impressive. Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne don't have the chemistry needed to pull of this movie off about two best friends since childhood stating a business. Byrne always seemed out of place in this Haddish vehicle and oddly enough Haddish seemed out of place in her own vechicle. It feels like she's holding back what makes everyone want to see her. It's like Haddish at one instead of eleven. Jennifer Cooledge suffers from the same thing. I did not get the full on Coolledge I was going for when I saw her that she was In The flick. Selma Hayek works as the villain but it's only a workable performance she did not make me laugh. Give it up to Billy Porter who tried to steel the scene when he was in it and in some cases he did. I'll say Like A Boss was worth the effort but I'll also say try to catch it when it's on a streaming service.
