On this week's On the Lot with Rebecca Keegan, Melissa McCarthy's R-Rated comedy "The Boss" squeaked out a win for the weekend, cementing her status as a star who can open a film, despite bad reviews.  And the cast of 'Straight Outta Compton' finally got their awards show moment -- at the MTV Movie Awards this weekend -- and used it to call out the Academy for their snub at this year's Oscars. And finally,  a planned movie about the late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury is having a hard time getting off the ground.
