The official synopsis from Paramount reads: “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.

What do critics think of Like A Boss?

Sadly the movie has not performed particularly well with critics, gaining a 20 per cent rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.

The Guardian’s Adrian Horton said: “Nothing in the script is remotely surprising or very funny, though nothing is horrendous, either.”

Meanwhile the Hollywood Reporter’s John DeFore said: “Quite funny for much of its running time, the film feels like it simply runs out of steam in its third act, settling for a lazy, pandering resolution and seeming happy to have made it to the 83-minute finish line.”

Like A Boss is out in cinemas on February 21
