Trailer Watch: Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Bell Take Over the Brownie Business World in ‘The Boss’

Trailer Watch: Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Bell Take Over the Brownie Business World in 'The Boss'

After transforming from mousy assistant to formidable agent in “Spy,” Melissa McCarthy is all brass and bluster in “The Boss.” 

McCarthy plays Michelle Darnell, the self-proclaimed wealthiest woman in America, who moves in with her beaten-down subordinate (Kristen Bell) after a short stint in prison for insider trading. Her reputation in shreds but her hyper-confidence intact, Michelle’s just waiting to make her entrepreneurial comeback. She spots an opportunity hawking brownies among the local Girl Scouts group — though not if a local PTA mom (Annie Mumolo) and a rival sweets-selling group has anything to say about it. 

Co-written by McCarthy, “The Boss” co-stars Kristen Schaal, Kathy Bates, Cecily Strong and Margo Martindale and opens April 8, 2016.
