Saw Horrible Bosses last night. Not my choice…i’d happily have chosen to see The Tree of Life again, or even Dark of the Moon. Went in with low expectations, and it still kind of underwhelmed. Imagine an alternate reality where weak network sitcoms are allowed to say fuck and make coke jokes. That’s exactly what Horrible Bosses is: Carpoolers with fucks and mildly edgy jokes enabled. Which i guess would be shocking/and or funny if there wasn’t an internet.
I laughed twice. It would have been three times, but they gave away the best joke in the trailer; Colin Farrell calling a guy in a wheelchair Professor X. Having said all this, the only thing more subjective than comedy is politics, so if Jennifer Aniston almost showing her tits, or Jamie Foxx playing a character called Motherfucker Jones speaks to your soul, don’t let me dissuade you. I did quite like Farrell, he’s not in this much, but should definitely do more comedy. I’m embedding my absolute favorite part of the film, below.
Fuck me. Statham and DeNiro? I’m in 4 or 5 times, blind.
