Mini-Review: “Horrible Bosses”

On Horrible Bosses:

 

This was okay, I guess. It wasn’t revolutionary or anything, but I got more than a few good laughs out of it, and it bears the premise out as well as it possibly can. I liked their nod to Strangers on a Train, making it perfectly clear how aware they are of the similarities between it and this film. Colin Farrell was very funny, but I wish that he was on-screen more often. Kevin Spacey isn’t nearly as funny, but he is so much more important to the plot. If you want to make this type of movie, all three bosses must have equal screen-time. But anyway, this is worth a rental. It’s funny, occasionally clever, and if Jaime Foxx doesn’t make you laugh, I don’t know what will.
