Tonight we’ll be heading to the local cineplex to catch Melissa McCarthy’s latest flick, “The Boss.” When a wealthy mogul gets busted for insider trading, she winds up devising a scheme to create a new empire selling Girl Scout cookies. She turns out to be quite the role model for her young troop. Check local listings for theaters and show times.
