Horrible Bosses

After a busy weekend with friends, I decided to do my time honored tradition of checking out a matinee alone. I couldn't wait to see Horrible Bosses! This movie stars Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, Jason Bateman and Colin Farrell.

I will not give too much away but the story... 3 guys have horrible bosses! The oversexed Jennifer Aniston who sexually harasses her employee. Kevin Spacey, who uses his power to taunt and abuse his employees. And Colin Farrell, who just cares about money and coke. They conspire to kill their bosses. A lot of people are comparing this movie to a male version of 9 to 5 and I can definitely see that.

The movie does deliver steady laughs, the guys are hilarious. I can only imagine how much fun they had making this movie. But it did fall flat for me toward the middle and picked up a bit after that.

I would say, in terms of funny, the Hangover still ranks the most recent funny comedy I've seen in a while, followed by Bridesmaids. This comes in after those 2.

BTW... Jennifer looks GREAT!

  1. Someone corrected me on this and said Horrible Bosses was up there with Hangover. I still disagree, I think they previewed too many scenes and then when you go see it, you've already seen the movie and it takes away a bit.
