Today was National Beer Day, so how fitting to have Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme from Broken Lizard (“Super Troopers”, “Club Dread”, “Beerfest”, “The Slammin’ Salmon”) in St. Louis to celebrate! After welcoming them to our town (as we enjoyed our Bud Lights), we got right to it; how is the production of “Super Troopers 2” going? Well, it has been GREAT! Kevin and Steve have loved diving-back into their characters and the film is nearly half completed. They gave us a few World Exclusives as well Continue reading
If Melissa McCarthy is “The Boss”, then she needs to Fire her writers!
Melissa McCarthy Stars in “The Boss” a comedy directed by Ben Falcone. McCarthy previously worked with Falcone on his directorial debut, the under-whelming comedy “Tammy.” The Boss also stars Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), Tyler Labine (Reeper) and Kristen Bell.
The Boss tells the tale of orphan Michelle Darnell’s rise from obscurity to monetary superstardom. Darnell was left at an orphanage by her mother for the nuns to raise the poor child. Repeatedly as she grew up Michelle would be adopted and subsequently brought back by the family once they got to know the child and knew what they were in for.
Flash forward to the present, Darnell is an adult and a corporate superstar. She is like the female Donald Trump. She has motivational speaking tours at sold out stadiums that feel like a Rolling Stones concert. Behind the scenes Claire (Bell), Darnell’s assistant keeps her boss’ life together planning her meetings and even whitening her teeth. Darnell gets a cryptic note from her business rival Renault (Dinklage) who also was her ex-boyfriend. Darnell and Claire head up to the roof only to find Renault on the roof of his adjoining building. The ex lovers quip back and forth until Darnell throws another deal she landed in his face. Michelle made a fortune on a stock tip (insider trading) and stole it out from under Renault.
