Horrible Bosses and a Hole in the Screen

Erica: We were in New Jersey this past weekend so we went to the AMC Clifton Commons 16. As we have mentioned before, the people are very well-behaved in this theater. We chose to avoid the crowds of people seeing the wizard's last hurrah and chose the comedy Horrible Bosses. We have no complaints about this theater for that day. We saw the 9:45am showing - maybe people aren't awake yet but we will take it however it comes. Actually, one complaint: An annoying hole in the screen. Spots, stains, stitches - sometimes it's tough to ignore them, and your eyes keep getting drawn to them.

I love how many Freaks and Geeks references I have been able to slip into these reviews. Horrible Bosses was co-written by John Francis Daley (who makes a cameo), Sam Weir to us Freaks and Geeks fans. Horrible Bosses was a very funny, entertaining movie. Hopefully everyone can remember Seth Gordon for this film and we can forget he directed the Vince Vaughn/Reese Witherspoon debacle Four Christmases. The star studded cast of Bosses ups the entertainment level although the concept is original and interesting enough to work without major stars. I think this is the best movie (or best anything) Jennifer Aniston has ever done. She is raunchy and so over the top, you can't help but laugh and you can clearly see her Friends days are behind her. Jamie Foxx makes a great appearance as the 'murder consultant' for the men as a man who demands $5,000 cash be given to him in a briefcase.

My least favorite part was the role played by Lindsay Sloane. She keeps showing up in movies and she is annoying and shrill and she seems to always play the same role in movies. Luckily, she is not in it for very long and if you can get past her, the movie is very entertaining and funny. We saw it for $6 and it was money well spent.
