Like A Boss [Movie Review]

Like A Boss [Movie Review] | A week of WFH filled with very professional, formal and serious job requirements and deliverables made me wanting to laugh a lot while watching a movie. 

So, I chose to watch this comedic movie, shared by my friends.

Mia and Mel have been friends since high school and now running their own beauty company, Mia&Mel. It was successful, but then it seems that the company has run its course and going down in major debts ($493,000 to be exact). Mel, being the practical ones try to cover things up by being optimistic whereas Mia always think that tomorrow will bring in new lights into their business. 

Mel, being taken in and raised by Mia's mum, feels like she always need to care about Mia and not offend her, so she kinda agrees with almost everything that Mia suggests.

When Claire Luna, the head of a major cosmetics empire, offers Mel a 'partnership'. Being Claire will only control 49% of the company, Mel agrees almost instantaneously as she wants to save their company and colleagues. But Mia was hesitant as she wants to be her own boss and not answerable to anyone else. 

Claire Luna sees the opportunity to break up the friendship and later take control of the bigger chunk of the company's share if the two quarrel and part ways, as per stipulated in their partnership contract. She takes the opportunity and continue to drive the wedge between the two. 

Will Mia&Mel persevere through this test of their friendship?

MY REVIEW

Plot: 3.6/ 5.0 I didn't laugh very much throughout the movie. There were funny moments but it seems that the script was half-cooked and the actor's potential were downplayed a tad. 

Cast: 4.4/ 5.0 The cast were great but even that couldn't really resuscitate the movie's life line. 

Will I watch it again: Not that funny, so no. 

The pictures are taken from multiple sources on the Internet. Thank you.
