Hot Takes: Like A Boss

1) Rose Byrne is an underrated comedic gem and she deserves meaty roles where she can really show off her skills.
1a) This is not that role.

2) Natasha Rothwell is an underrated comedic gem and she deserves meaty roles where she can really show off her skills.
2a) This is not that role.

3) I liked it! The trailer looked terrible to me and I was expecting to be really disappointed, but I had more than the average number of laughs at a big budget Hollywood comedy.

4) Every line they gave Jennifer Coolidge should’ve been workshopped again. I know how they were trying to paint that character, but they really didn’t succeed.

5) Tiffany Haddish is consistently Tiffany Haddish and that is why I go to see a Tiffany Haddish film. Tom Cruise has been playing the same two characters for 30 years. Julia Roberts built a whole career on one note. Viola Davis has carved one (impressively acted) lane for herself. It’s okay for an artist to find one note and do it well, and that’s what Tiffany is doing. If Eddie Murphy, Kevin Hart, and Tracy Morgan can be one very specific type of comedic actor, I don’t see why y’all keep wanting Tiffany Haddish to be so expansive to collect her coins.

6) Salma Hayek’s assistant guy (looking his name up — it’s Karan Soni) gets cuter and cuter every year. He must be eatin good.

7) Good job giving the messed up dysfunctional childhood to the white woman. I was expecting to be annoyed, so thank you to the writers.

8) Putting ghost peppers into your friend’s food is actually assault and no amount of apologizing would save you from the asswhooping I would unleash the next morning after my digestive tract recovers.

9) There are better comedies. Everybody in this movie actually has better comedies in their arsenal. But if you want a few laugh out loud chuckles at the theater with your homegirls, Like A Boss is a pretty decent kick-off to a night out.
