Today marks the 5 year anniversary of awesomeness in my life. This list represents every movie my old lady (she…
Ever wish your boss was dead?
For Nick (Jason Bateman), Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) and Dale (Charlie Day), the only thing that would make the daily grind more tolerable would be to grind their intolerable bosses (Kevin Spacey, Colin Farrell, Jennifer Aniston) into dust. Quitting is not an option, so, with the benefit of a few-too-many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con (Jamie Foxx), the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers... permanently.
Going into this, I expected it to be somewhat amusing but really stupid and predictable. I was really surprised by how hilarious and clever this is. The cast is fantastic. Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and especially Charlie Day all are given a chance to shine as are the bosses, especially Kevin Spacey who completely owns his role. He's always been the king of playing asshole bosses and this is no exception. This is the hottest and the funniest Jennifer Aniston has ever been. Colin Farrel gives the best performance he had in years at this point. Funniest he's been since In Bruges. This film is really well written. As soon as I think I know how the story is gonna…
Colin Farrell according to my wife is, and I quote,"sex on a stick".
That fact alone should be enough to earn my distaste,but funnily enough it just makes his transformation into comb-over,coke-head asshole all the more appealing. This is one of Farrell's best performances. His tortured soul from "In Bruges" remains his most memorable and iconic role but this has him mocking himself and having a ball.
Kevin Spacey is a two time Oscar winner that can turn his hand to anything. As David Harken he becomes the epitome of a corporate dickhead. As slimy a character as Spacey has ever played he really was the most "horrible" of the bosses. And then we get to possibly the best boss…
I'm really sad to see the sequel is in the hands of the That's My Boy director...
Original and highly entertaining, "Horrible Bosses" has a great premise, awesome chemistry, great pacing, and a lot of originality. Charlie Day is hilarious and quick-witted, Jason Bateman is solid, and Jason Sudeikis is the scene stealer. Can't wait for #2.
Today was laziness day and since I almost never left the bed or the couch I rewatched this one also passing on tv. Still very funny!
If there's one thing every working person in world has in common, it's that at one point in their life, they had a boss they hated. Horrible Bosses is a 2011 comedy directed by Seth Gordon, that tells us the story of three friends who have that same problem.
Nick, Dale, and Kurt are three friends who each have a despicable boss who's making their lives a living hell. Nick's boss, David Harken, is just a jerk who seems to enjoy making his employees, especially Nick, suffer. Dale is working as an assistant to a perverted, sexually harassing dentist called Julia. While Kurt works for Bobby Pellitt, who is just an incompetent moron. One night while they're hanging out in…
So why didn't they just fucking quit?
I'd like to bend her over a barrel and show her the 50 states if you know what I mean...
I had school off on Thursday, and this was on TV, so I figured U would watch it. Its a fun movie. It has some laughs here and there, and the performances are fine. Other than that it isn't as funny as it wants to be. Its story, while being orignal aning, has some unlikable characters. It not a great comedy, but a quite amusing one.
I watched this tomfoolery because Kevin Spacey was on it.. and that half star goes solely for him.
It's movie is a super funny movie. Watch it if you haven't
Entertaining with some good, genuine laughs, but altogether, pretty forgettable.
Rude and crude as I expected. But I found myself laughing more than I thought I would. My hopes weren't high, as it seems how I am with most new comedies nowadays.
Performances that shined for me: Kevin Spacey, although portraying a complete douche I can't help but be enticed by his talents. Charlie Day, a nervous, excitable guy just trying to make it through the movie. But I enjoyed his character, his style of comedy, and his naive innocence.
However, Jason Bateman plays a straight-laced, play-by-the-rules guy in a hairy situation. It's a fish out-of-water cliché that he does in just about every movie. It's worn out, like most of my cliché adjectives I just used to describe his…
One of the better hard 'R', adult comedies of the last 5 years. That's owing a lot to the easy chemistry between the leads (Batemen, Day, Sudeikis) as well as the crazy, over-the-top performances of the three titular bad guys (Spacey, Aniston, Farrell.) The film is an obvious and acknowledged homage to both Alfred Hitchcock and Danny DeVito but the story loses the thread in the third act, just kind of petering out. Still, there's plenty of LOL along the way and sometimes that's all you want.
