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...
