This week: Horrible Bosses 2
written by Lhynette Alejandro
Uno: The amazing chemistry between the three main characters definitely played a huge part.
Dos: You have the ever so stupidly hilarious Charlie Day, the horndog of a single guy, Jason Sudeikis...and between the two, Jason Bateman as the father figure who looked after the group, convincing everyone "we are not going to see mother fucker jones, because we are not going to kidnap anyone."
Three: The dialogue was fast and witty-usually this banter was between Day and Sudeikis. The kind of sarcastic humor I was hoping for was there...and it was definitely shown in the first scene where the three characters are on a makeshift morning TV show...introducing their "shower buddy" invention. Once I picked up the interaction between the three characters in the first scene, I was convinced that the movie will be peppered with unexpected funnies!
As funny as this movie was, it tugged on my heart strings a bit: here are three guys, they’re average normal dudes, who are just tired of getting dicked around by their superiors. They have hopes and dreams...and they just want to succeed! I related to it a bit I’ve been there, being a member in the working force. It was relatable to me. There was a scene where Dale's former boss, played by Jennifer Aniston, ended up in a hotel room with the trio and all she ever wanted was to sleep with Dale. And as soon as I thought Dale was finally going to give in to the temptation, he ended up shoving Aniston in the bathroom to go after his wife and save his marriage. I'm not saying I'm out here trying to do the same thing these guys are doing to their bosses, but the characters are relatable because work life has thrown these frustrations at us and it's just entertaining to see some of our thoughts about our bosses acted out in this movie.
My random thoughts on the movie:
- Why would your buddy be in the shower with you? "WHY WOULD YOUR DAD?!?!"
- Bringing back the oldies - Aniston, Pacey and MOTHERFUCKER JONES.
- I am going to start using "fight clubbing" in my vocabulary.
- Chris Pine looks so skeezy weasel in this movie.
- I think i just saw the whole movie watching this damn trailer.
