This is all about Like a Boss (2020) – Movie Review and Summary and Theory, starring Salma Hayek, Rose Byrne, Tiffany Haddish, Billy Porter. Like a Boss was directed by Miguel Arteta the filmmaker behind Youth in Revolt the good girl Beatriz at dinner and Alexander and the terrible horrible no good very bad day.
This film stars Rose Byrne and Tiffany Haddish as life long best friends who run a makeup company together and they’re starting to experience some success so a big company run by Salma Hayek swoops in and offers to buy them.
This strains their friendship because this woman is very evil and she’s pulling the strings behind the scenes to manipulate them so that she can hopefully take over their company. Like a Boss Review. I want to make one thing really clear. Like a Boss Theory. I’ll watch any movie it doesn’t matter who it’s aimed at it doesn’t matter what the type of film is the story the genre who’s in it.
The world of beauty is about to get ugly. Watch the official trailer for Like A Boss, starring Tiffany Haddish, Rose Byrne, and Salma Hayek. It doesn’t matter I will watch any movie and in the case of this movie. It’s obviously aimed at women.
It’s message is designed to empower women and make them feel good about themselves and not listen to the world’s message that seems to suggest that you have to cover up your flaws and that you should embrace your inner beauty and accept who you are and not feel the need to cover up what the world is telling you you need to cover up so that you can be accepted that’s a great message very good message for people to hear.
Unfortunately, the movies fucking terrible the film is so lost in this idea that it has to have a message but also have scenes where Tiffany Haddish eats a ghost pepper and spits milk up on people because she doesn’t realize how spicy it’s gonna be and then she has to poop really bad. This film is so exaggerated every scene is so absurd into this heightened level of insanity.
I had a hard time taking it seriously it didn’t feel like people were involved in scenarios in which I cared about them it just felt like Saturday Night Live skits stretched to near feature-length because this film is like 83 minutes long and that’s with credits meaning that it might not actually break the 70 minute barrier.
The real problem I have with this movie is how cartoonish it villains are Salma Hayek who is obviously having a lot of fun in this role in really relishing her time on screen is just a pure fabrication of a person like there might be a bad business owner and trust me, like a Boss Summary I’ve met many of them but it’s like hey we’ll just take that and put like a real movie version of that because if we get too real then that just won’t make audiences happy.
This movie is trying to be that film that you can go with your friends and see and be happy but it’s not an authentic feeling nothing that’s happening on the screen feels real it all feels so manufactured by a committee and perfectly shat out by a conveyor belt that I can’t believe a second of it Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne are both super fucking talented.
Tiffany Haddish is fucking hilarious I’ve seen her really funny and stuff she was great in girls trip Rose Byrne has a ton of range. Like a Boss Review. She’s really funny in movies like instant family or the neighbor’s movies and then she’s also really great in horror like the insidious films and they both work well together in this movie.
It feels like they’re friends the problem is that the movie just doesn’t give a shit about character or story and just wants to make you laugh with these really unfunny scenes that are just filled with so much dead air it’s embarrassing like for instance early on in the film when they’re at their first interview with Salma Hayek hoping.
She’ll buy their company there are drones flying around this place and one of them gets like really close to Tiffany Haddish and so she likes bats it away and breaks it and now. They’re terrified they broke a drone so they stuff it in their purse and throughout the whole meeting. It’s like moving around in the purse that’s this movie’s idea of hilarious comedy.
The villains in the movie are so horrendously cartoonish I’ve already mentioned Salma Hayek’s character but there are other villains in the movie. There’s a competing makeup company and it’s these two douchebags and their entire idea is that like a woman needs to cover up her flaws to make her beautiful and it’s just fucking horrific and it’s so stupid and I’ll tell you why everyone in the movie is just like so taken with these like they’re standing up in front of a crowd of like a hundred two hundred women.
They’re competing with our two leads to see who can give a woman the best look and they have this whole speech where they’re like we’ve covered up all of her flaws and imperfections and doesn’t she just look wonderful and they turn her around she looks like a fucking mannequin and all the women are like wow you are horrible misogynistic bad.
Like a Boss Review. We’re clapping for you if those dudes did that they would be booed off the stage but of course, this movie wants them to be villains and so the crowd has to embrace them so it’s harder for our heroes to win and it’s just fucking stupid I don’t buy it.
I’m sorry I have a fucking brain there were two other women in this theater and They left halfway through so I don’t know this movie is trying to be a lot of different things and I think it fails at just about every single one of them. ike a Boss Summary.
