Best friends, Mia and Mel (Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne) are living their best lives, running their own cosmetics company. Unfortunately, they’re in over their heads financially, and the prospect of a big buyout offer from a notorious titan of the cosmetics industry Claire Luna (Salma Hayek) proves too tempting to pass up, putting Mel and Mia’s lifelong friendship in jeopardy.
Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this film for review. The opinions of this blog are my own. I’m not a professional in any way but I am a movie fan.
The two besties learn that sticking together is the only way to turn the tables and take their company back. The beauty business is about to get ugly.
The film also stars Jennifer Coolidge and Billy Porter, Ari Graynor, Natasha Rothwell, Jessica St. Clair and Karan Soni.

WHAT I THOUGHT:
I looked forward to receiving this movie because I love the starring ladies; I have been in need of a good laugh as of late and with the current social distancing WHO doesn’t need a distraction? Along with the movie, I also received some ‘Like a Boss’ themed goodies that included a compact mirror and a little take-along overnight kit! These goodies are very useful so I’m quite pleased.
For me, I found that the story was quite predictable; however, Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne have great chemistry and project a believable friendship that we can all relate to. Personally, I didn’t find it “hilariously funny” as I had anticipated but there were several enjoyable and funny scenes. Unfortunately the movie was a little boring; however, you will discover all of the ‘feel-good movie’ feels have been cram-packed into the ending. It’s at this point that the movie’s message is revealed. True friendship will prevail; even at the worst of times.
