| Film Synopsis |

Best friends Mia and Mel (Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne) are living their best lives running their own cosmetics company they’ve built from the ground up. Unfortunately, they’re in over their heads financially, and the prospect of a big buyout offer from a notorious titan of the cosmetics industry Claire Luna (Salma Hayek) proves too tempting to pass up, putting Mel and Mia’s lifelong friendship in jeopardy. The beauty business is about to get ugly. LIKE A BOSS also stars Billy Porter, Jennifer Coolidge, Ari Graynor, Natasha Rothwell and Karan Soni.

| Video |

The 1080p high definition resolution is sharp and clean. This is a solid video presentation that seems a perfect match for this kind of film. Images are resolute, with stable sharpness, crisp detail and appreciable subtle refinement. All blacks look clean and accurate in natural light or set lighting.

| Audio |

The DTS-HD master audio 7.1 is very good with a nice balance between the dialogue and the eclectic soundtrack.  Surrounds don’t do much for this film.

| Special Features |
  • With Coworkers Like These, Who Needs Friends?

LIKE A BOSS is only 83 minutes long. Don't expect much though.   Fans of the cast or those looking for a lighthearted diversion should give it a chance.  It has a handful of laughs.
