THE BOSS is a US comedy about a disgraced entrepreneur who has to move in with one of her former employees after a spell in prison.

Language

Frequent strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker') occurs, as well as milder terms such as 'bitch', 'asshole' and 'shit'. There is also some play on words involving very strong language ('c**t'), including a character spelling the word out as part of a comic insult.

Sex

Strong verbal sex references include repeated use of the phrase "suck his dick", as well as references to 'blowjobs' and 'girl on girl stuff'. There is also a scene in which a man drops to his knees in front of a security guard, suggesting he is performing fellatio, but no further detail is shown.

Drugs

A man snorts cocaine, then a woman tells him, "You look so f**king rad when you do coke". It is a comic scene, in which the characters look ridiculous.

There are also some scenes of moderate comic violence, without injury.
