Movie Preview: Tiffany and Rose learn from Salma how to act “Like a Boss”

It’s been mostly miss or miss, with hits pretty rare, since Tiffany Haddish broke out with “Girls’ Trip.”

Pairing her up with Rose Byrne, under-rated as a comedienne, but damned funny in “Neighbors” and “Bridesmaids” and “Get Him to the Greek,” is a smart play.

And Salma Hayek as badassed and predatory? That’s a slam dunk.

This is a Jan. 10 release, meaning this movie will be competing for attention against blockbusters and Oscar contenders, mostly films released over Christmas.

Paramount is either A) saying not to expect much here, lowering expectations or B) counter-programming against “prestige” pictures with a little lowdown lady-powered comedy that could make some noise.
