Review - Horrible Bosses

Horrible Bosses? Horrible title. But the movie is not horrible at all. In fact, it is quite the funny one. Funnier than the other summer R-rated comedies (Bridesmaids, The Hangover II).

One of the reasons I wanted to watch this is because of Jennifer Aniston. And Jason Bateman. Playing against type, Aniston kinda stole the show here whenever she's on screen. Bateman is playing the straight guy here but still manages to get some laughs. But that's probably due to the interactions he had with the other two guys, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day.

Sudeikis, from SNL and 30 Rock, is not bad here. So is Charlie Day, whose high pitched voice and awkward geekiness is milked fully here.

So, basically Horrible Bosses is about... yup, you guessed it... horrible bosses. One guy was passed over for a promotion even though he was promised it by the boss, one guy had an asshole for a boss and the other one has a maneater for a boss, sexually harassing him every day. They all come up with the idea of getting rid of their bosses.

Like all R-rated comedies, this one is full of cussing and outlandish stunts... but it's funny... unlike some other movie where it's not entirely funny at all... (read: Bridesmaids)...

It was a pleasant surprise, this one... :)

P/S - I really feel sorry for Jennifer Aniston... she has not had a hit on her name alone in a while now... all of her movies that are very successful are the ones where she plays second fiddle...

Review - The Hangover II

The Wolfpack is back! This time, they're heading to Thailand for Stu's wedding... History repeats itself as they wake up in another city and have no recollection of what happened... and have lost Teddy, Stu's bride-to-be's baby brother...

The first movie was of similar storyline... they went to Vegas for their friend's bachelor party but winds up losing him and they have to retrace their steps to find the friend... even the conclusion was similar...

I did not get to see this movie until after it got the Golden Globe nomination... and yes, it was quite different from the rest of the summer stuff... but with this movie, because of the familiar retreads... felt like there was nothing special about the movie... has the been there, done that feel... well, obviously, coz it's a sequel... but some sequels are quite fresh...

To tell you the truth, I was not really inspired to review much these days... Not sure if it's coz of puasa or the movies are not that good... sigh...

Anyway, The Hangover 2 is not without its good points... the same formula that made the first one good, still applies here... the stars' chemistry together is a wonder to watch...

Unfortunately, Zach Galifianakis is slowly starting to carve a niche for himself as the uber weird guy in all the movies... I first saw him on Tru Calling... and was glad to see him making a name for himself... but with the two Hangovers and that movie with Robert Downey Jr... he'll soon be typecast for sure...

Other than that, it was just enjoyable... leave brain at the door and enjoy... :)
