Movie of the Week: Horrible Bosses

Go see Horrible Bosses.  You're abs will be glad they got a good work out from laughing so much.  Horrible Bosses stars Charlie Day, Jason Bateman, and Jason Sudeikis as three men who have absolutely awful bosses, portrayed to be quite deserving of death and played by Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey, and Collin Farrell, respectively.

I laughed almost as much during Horrible Bosses as I did during Bridesmaids.  Though Charlie Day often stole scenes, the other two held their own perfectly.  The one thing about Charlie Day is that I think it's difficult to differentiate his characters in every movie from his character in It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.  I'm starting to think he's really his character on Sunny.  His boss tries to rape him daily and sexually harasses him, while his friends think it's ridiculous that he complains about this because it's, well, Jennifer Aniston.  Perhaps the highlight of Day's performance was when he was on watch in the car, and they showed him alone in the car for minutes, and it couldn't be funnier.  Just watching him be stupid in the car by himself was worth my $8.50.  He's so adorable.

Bateman's character had a very dry sense of humor and very straightforward, typical of Bateman, right?  But it works.  And, as always, we love him.  As the rational one with his life lined up where he wants it, it's hilarious when this insanity smacks him right in the face.

Sudeikis plays a ladies' man, and he couldn't do it better.  His charm is incredible as he seduces every woman he passes, which always gets him in trouble.  Clearly, he's not one to think with his brain but with his penis.

These characters together create a fun, always-on-your-toes atmosphere that makes for a jolly good time.  Go see this (and sorry I'm behind on writing this review, what little review it is).
