Is Melissa McCarthy The Best R-Rated Comedienne Ever? She Makes Her Case In Red Band ‘The Boss’ Trailer
After being woefully under-appreciated for her layered turn in the Paul Feig-directed Spy, Melissa McCarthy is back in full R-rated raunchy comedy mode with The Boss. She plays a disgraced mogul who tries to rebound by creating a Girl Scouts empire.
