Michelle Darnell was adopted and returned several times.  From these disappointments, she learned that she can only depend on herself and she is determined to succeed at all cost.  Present day, she is the 49th wealthiest woman in the world with a mass empire and crushes anyone in her path.  But all that comes crumbling down, when a rival, and former lover, reports her for insider trading and she goes to jail for 4 months.  When she gets out, Michelle realizes she has no one and moves in with her former assistant, Claire, and Claire’s daughter, Rachel.  Claire sees that Michelle is in a funk and asks her to get off the couch to attend Rachel’s Dandelion troop meeting.  During the meeting Michelle gets the bright idea to create her own troop, sale brownies, and give the girls real business skills and a cut of the profits.  Overtime, Michelle might learn what success really is and what it is not.

This is a “coming into your own” movie that has made Melissa McCarthy famous. Her Jimmy Fallon performance pales in comparison to The Boss’s opening number.  Melissa reminds you that she can do everything.  This comedy does get raunchy, but it’s necessary to keep the laughs going.  Some of the jokes do fall flat or get old over time.  This is not her best work, but it’s a good matinee movie with two interesting fight scenes.

I give it 3 out of 5 starts

Agnus, family is for suckers.  Don’t worry, I’m gong to straight to the top – Michelle

You crushed that like velvet – Tito

I’m sorry.  What did he say ?– Michelle

God, you’re the worst – Claire
