There have been many horrible bosses in movies that have shaken us to our very cores (looking at you Priestly), but it's safe to say that Little's Jordan Sanders takes the cake. Played to perfection by Regina Hall, Jordan starts her day terrorizing everyone, from her next door neighbor to local baristas and her own long-suffering assistant, April (Issa Rae). In a very The Devil Wears Prada-esque moment, April actually tries to warn her colleagues that Jordan is on her way, but there's no hiding from the boss when she wants to find you. And Jordan's anger is like a heat missile, constantly aimed at her terrified employees.

Her reign of terror is abruptly cut short when she meets the business end of a wand and wakes up in the body of her 13-year-old self (played by executive producer Marsai Martin, age 14). A modern reversal of the classic 1988 comedy Big, the film follows a similar formula with twists and turns unique to Martin's vision. Young Jordan has to deal with everyone treating her like a child again and the struggles that come along with adolescence — relentless bullies. Even though she's been on the other side of the bullying for the last several years, it's still hurtful when it's at her expense, and the experience takes her on a journey of discovery and self-acceptance.

Hall - Role - Jordan - List - Characters

For Hall, the role of Jordan joins a long list of comedic characters that are outrageously funny. When I hopped on the phone with the Girls Trip actress, she admitted that fans still throw out quotes from Scary Movie's Brenda when they see her, and I have a feeling that she'll be hearing Jordan's vicious — but hilarious — insults soon enough.
