Horrible Bosses is a movie which everyone should see, for the following reasons:
- Jason Sudeikis is an exceptionally handsome, corn-fed Midwestern gentlemen, with possibly capped teeth that shine brighter than the sun against his spray tan (character choice or January Jones-induced? The world may never know).
- If you took random screencaps of Jason Bateman at different points of this movie and superimposed them on a background of peach wallpaper, you could probably fool people into thinking the Arrested Development movie was really happening. This is a good thing.
- At one point, someone describes Charlie Day as a “little hamster,” and it literally made me double over laughing. The accuracy of this statement is possibly the best thing I’ve ever heard.
- The older couple (late 50s, early 60s) behind me described it as “the modern Three Stooges,” which is also incredibly accurate. The wife was also particularly fond of the character of Motherfucker Jones.
- The interplay and improvisation between the three dudes is funnier than both of the Hangovers put together. But that’s basically a given, right?
- There is far less Jennifer Aniston in this movie than the nation has been led to believe. I, personally, am curious as to how such fine Oscar-winning actors as Kevin Spacey and Jamie Foxx feel about being sold as the third leads behind Jennifer Aniston and three random guys from the televisual box. But it doesn’t really matter, because everyone is funny and does their share.
- Julie Bowen is there.
- John Francis Daley did not just write this; he is in it. I am always in favor of Sam Weir being in things, so that was nice. I didn’t even look at Jason Bateman’s face when he was in frame, so that’s important!
- Basically, this is a Shallow Viewing Event for female comedy nerds disguised as a fist-bump-y bro-comedy for men. It is also totally fucking funny. So please, go see it. This plus Bridesmaids equals The Best Comedies Of The Summer.
