Haddish and Byrne play two best friends that have been come into a big amount of debt running their own cosmetics company. When industry titan Claire Luna (Hayek) turns up with a great offer, they jump at the chance. Unfortunately, their friendship’s about to get a big test as a result.
The combo of Haddish and the always-great-value Byrne could be a winning formula with this comedy, which comes from director Miguel Arteta (Youth in Revolt, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day) and screenwriters Adam Cole-Kelly & Sam Pitman. The trailer isn’t too bad, although it perhaps shows a bit too much plot and not enough funny/original sequences. Still, looking forward to check it out.
Like a Boss, also starring Jennifer Coolidge, Ari Graynor and Natasha Rothwell, will be hitting the US on January 10 and will be in Australian cinemas on January 23, 2020.
