When you’re talking about mainstream comedies, there is not much room for improvement and experiments. The studios need their money back and this usually results in light and PG-13 movies that you just watch and forget. Doing so will make you have a relatively fun time and the studio got their money back, it’s a win-win situation. No one wonders what happens to the movie. Well Horrible Bosses will be remembered, if for nothing else then for Dr. Julia Harris, D.D.S. magnificently played by “the girl next door” Jennifer Aniston. The things you will hear coming out of her mouth are so outrageous and incredibly funny, and if you combine this with her previous image as sweet and shy girl and you’ve got yourself one fine lady. Not to mention Kevin and Collin with his new style(what a combover does to a man is unbelievable). Still I wish that they stayed a bit more realistic, and continued as a black humor comedy, but towards the end of the movie everything just got a bit too silly for me. And finally a comedy with a R rating, using it pretty cleverly, since there are a lot of words that you usually don’t hear in these types of movies. Movie was a success and there is already talk about a sequel.

Bosses can be horrible in many different ways, and Nick, Dale and Kurt know this better than everyone. Each of them has a different type of abusive boss, who tortures them on a daily basis. Nick’s boss is a typical bully (Kevin Spacey), a president of a large corporation that he sees as his own. Kurt’s boss is a cocaine addicted party animal (Colin Farrell) without any regard for the company or people who work there. And finally, Dale’s boss is a hot women who wants to have sex with him (Jennifer Aniston), and this shouldn’t be a problem to Dale but he is happily engaged with no interest in fucking the brains of his boss. Three of them, drinking, come up with a ingenious plan to kill their bosses in order to have better lives and carriers but this will turn out to be a much more difficult task than they initially envisioned.

    Horrible Bosses was one of the funniest movies I’ve seen this year. I was literally dying of laughter at the coke scene in the movie. I was surprised to see Jennifer Aniston acting so differently! I will never see Friends the same way again! Charlie Day was my favorite out of the main characters. I have a friend that reminds me of him, paranoid and crazy! I really enjoyed this movie and I plan on seeing it again very soon! I know that the Blockbuster Movie Pass was released earlier this week! I am really excited because the Blockbuster Movie Pass will give customers a huge selection of DVDs like Horrible Bosses, along with TV shows and games by mail. Since it is being offered by DISH Network (who is also my employer), there are 20 channels that are included with the Movie Pass in addition to the thousands of movies and shows that you can stream to your TV or PC! Blockbuster also has many stores that you can exchange DVDs at and Blu-Rays are included! For all that, I think $10 is such a great price for all that!
