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

Waste of time.

It's like they give them a bland script and say "make it funny.

The reason its gets a 6 is because i didn't feel like the film was bland at points, or lacking in depth, along with the pace, jokes & good story plot, i enjoyed it, i didn't want to leave or feel frustrated or wanting more,Just go into this film with a group of friends & just enjoy what its showing you, have a laugh & pass some time.

Entire film full of boring conversation and overuse scene!

The friendship of the girls was nice, but the story was predictable and the characters too cookie cut.

The worst movie of the year .

Kind of boring .

The worst movie I have ever come across, had to stop not even halfway.

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.

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

Entertaining and funny - NOT!!!

This Movie is by far the boring and sexist Movie of the year.

The plot was predictable, but enjoyable nonetheless.

A truly awful film, it was set up to be ok but sadly for a comedy film the scriptwriters forgot to put any jokes in, it was predictable and I think I had a mild chuckle about twice in the entire film, a real shame

Salma Hayek delivers one of her worst performances in this nearly unwatchable comedy.

For people who like a bit too exaggerated comedy, this movie can still be entertaining.

Entire film full of boring conversation, and annoying overuse scene!

As for the movie it self it got it all - poor and easily predictable script, cringe acting, no chemistry between characters.

Fairly enjoyable and funnier than expected .

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

It was just too slow.

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.

Funny, a Little Cheesy Very Predictable .

And the story is predictable.

Both me and my girlfriend was bored as hell with this poor quality movie and turned if off after twenty minutes

It was definitely a cute movie worth watching.

Billy Porter actually did very well in this movie as well, I found his character enjoyable.

Cliche btch black woman and weak white smart woman?

Poorly written, predictable script.

Don't waste your money .

This is one of the worst movies EVER!

Rose Byrne and Tiffany Haddish are entertaining.

I'm tired of seeing this black twin copy of Amy Schumer with horrible bland jokes and even worse films.

Predictable from the START.

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

The story was predictable and out of date.

This movie is unfunny, poor line delivery, and when women TRY to act like men, it comes off fake, unfunny and contrived.

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.

Predictable but entertaining .

worst movie of the year candidate (1 viewing, 5/27/2020)

Was it predictable?

It's extremely unfunny and really predictable.

It is flat, dull and offensive.

The movie got predictable and boring.

Another bad movie by the same boring director .

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

I got bored not even halfway through.

The movie is trying to paint the boring life of middle aged women a little more colorful.

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.

Surprising, and entertaining enough for fellas.

Don't waste your time on this movie .

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.

The worst movie of the year.

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

Flat, dull and offensive .

Worst Movie of the Year so far .

It was enjoyable and I never felt bored.

Save your money .

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

I still had fun on the characters journey throughout, but it would of just been nice to have something unexpected or complex happening.

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

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

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

It was predictable and borderline inappropriate.

Tiffany Haddish is beginning to become repetitive.


It is a mystery how a nice cast can fail to actually deliver something entertaining.

It is boring.

entertaining and funny - NOT!!.

Unlikable characters, non-existent boring story.

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.

What a complete waste of time.

My husband and I both enjoyed it.

Boring and unfunny .

Indeed, quite boring.

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

What a waste of money and time.
