The search continues for a suitable showcase for the awesome talents of Melissa McCarthy outside of films directed by Paul Feig.As in McCarthy's slipshod road movies "Identity Thief" and "Tammy," the material here isn't on her level, the laughs are largely cheap and once again, the hall-of-fame comic actress is stuck in a minor-league movie.Like "Tammy," "The Boss" was directed by Ben Falcone, McCarthy's husband and longtime collaborator, and written by them both. In both films, the premise is solidly rooted in the common frustrations of thoughtless bosses and dead-end jobs. "The Boss" is tighter than "Tammy" and it's not without laughs. With few supporting players providing much humor (Kathy Bates, as Michelle's mentor, is entirely squandered), McCarthy shoulders the film.
