The Boss movie quotes tells the story of one disgraced and imprisoned empress who seeks to rebuild her fortune with the help of a local Brownie troop. The comedy film was directed by Ben Falcone using a screenplay he co-wrote with wife Melissa McCarthy and Steve Mallory. The Boss opened in theaters on April 8, 2016.

In The Boss, Michelle Darnell (Melissa McCarthy) has built an empire and become the wealthiest woman in the world. But after she is charged with insider trading and sent to prison, she's left penniless, homeless and without many friends. One of her former employees, Claire (Kristen Bell) takes Michelle in and allows her to stay in her home along with Claire's daughter, Rachel (Ella Anderson).

So when Claire urges Michelle to take Rachel to her Dandelion Troop meeting, Michelle gets an idea to rebuild her empire. Michelle wants to form a massive troop of Brownies who will sell brownies for profit. While Michelle tries hard to use this opportunity to rebrand herself, it's not as easy returning to grace as she would like.

Co-starring Peter Dinklage, Kathy Bates and Annie Mumolo, The Boss opened in theaters already showing other films including Demolition, Hardcore Henry, Meet the Blacks, and Everybody Wants Some!!.
