Just super run-of-the-mill and tedious.

Her repetitive nature, constantly unamusing pop culture references and ear-piercingly runny mouth aside, Haddish's character is highly unlikable since she doesn't do a single nice thing throughout the whole movie.

Poorly written, predictable script.

There were very few funny parts as well and that's extremely disappointing; this film was a complete snoozer.

Predictable but entertaining .

Was it predictable?

Funny, a Little Cheesy Very Predictable .

Like A Boss is a feeble, predictable buddy comedy that retreads an old premise, does absolutely nothing new and only succeeds in its pairing of its stars, Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne.

Waste of time.

I got bored not even halfway through.

Rambling on about friendship and roaring career women, it feels arbitrarily dated, totally unfunny, trite, and completely fanciful.

The plot lacked creativity it looked like something you might've seen before; it was very predictable as well.

Sure it was cheesy at times and there's definitely better comedies out there but it was still very enjoyable!

Boring and unfunny .

But the plot line is very predictable with all the 'good and bad' characters we've seen before.

Don't waste your money .

LIKES:Short Run Time Comedic Gold At Times Great Chemistry Between Cast Nifty Ideas Good Morals Billy PorterDISLIKES:Predictable Story Surprisingly feels slow Sometimes Too Much Comedic Insight Joke Barrage Some of the Language The Pointless Side Stories/Characters Time Skips that did not make sense Nearly Half the Movie Ruined By TrailersThe VERDICT:Comedy is tough in this age of politics and changing acceptance of rude vs.

The movie got predictable and boring.

The plot was predictable, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Kind of boring .

Everything is should be shelved and remembered for a waste of resources, talent ant time.

Fairly enjoyable and funnier than expected .

Another bad movie by the same boring director .

Tiffany Haddish's stereotypical sassy black character in particular is extremely annoying and repetitive.

The story was predictable and out of date.

Tiffany Haddish is beginning to become repetitive.

The plot in a comedy doesn't have to be much if the jokes carry it, but this plot was just really plain and boring.

Like A Boss has a generic story and jokes that fall flat, but in the end Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne's on screen chemistry really bring the film together for an entertaining January comedy.

Save your money .

It was predictable and borderline inappropriate.


It's extremely unfunny and really predictable.

Salma Hayek is enjoyable cartoony, with her funny comedic reactions.

Surprising, and entertaining enough for fellas.

The Stream: Predictable and laughs are few and far between, though I think they are tryingThe Big Screen: Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne have good on-screen chemistryThe Final Bill: If you don't mind knowing everything that's going to happen from minute one and realize that every joke is obvious and unfunny, then sure whatever.

It was enjoyable and I never felt bored.

While being very formulaic and predictable, the movie does not linger on anything.

The plot was boring and movie had no high point and it really was just a terrible waste of time.
