Horrible Bosses

Tonight a bunch of us from work went to see Horrible Bosses.
I swear I will slow my roll on the movies soon, but I love summer blockbusters.  I thought this movie was hilarious and it had tons of amazing actors.  I love Jason Bateman, Jason Sudekis, Jennifer Aniston, Donald Sutherland, Kevin Spacey, etc.  I didn't check my phone once during the movie, which is always a good sign. 

I love Jennifer Aniston as a brunette.  What do you think?

She was so funny in this role, and it was great to see a woman playing the aggressive sexual predator and a man playing the faithful fiance who wants nothing to do with her. I would pick Jennifer over Angelina any day :)

Horrible Bosses was rated 73% by the critics on Rotten Tomatoes, and 80% by the audience.  This is a really high rating especially for a comedy!

I wished I could have taken pictures of the crowd at the theater, but I felt too rude to do so.  However, it was quite entertaining.  All the die-hard Harry Potter fans were already starting to line up at 7:15.  I cannot fathom standing in line that long, but I love that there is something they are so passionate.  I imagine it is quite the experience.  Most people were also dressed up, and it was awesome seeing everyone's different interpretations of the movie.  Regardless of whether you like Harry Potter or not, you have to admit that it is quite impressive the craze it has created. 

I don't know much to say about Horrible Bosses, other than if you are a fan of blockbuster comedies, this will be right up your alley.  With all the sexual aggressiveness of Jennifer Aniston, it definately isn't great for younger children, but I think anyone teenage and up will really enjoy it.

I might be slow to figure things out, but I also thought that the movie wasn't completely obvious and there were some funny twists and turns.

Let me know what you think if you see it/have seen it!

I thought Horrible Bosses looked like fun; I'll go see it if we get invited by friends, but otherwise I'll save my $9 and rent it! Movies cut into my food budget! :-)

i saw this last week and thought it was pretty funny too. definitely a good summer comedy--and i liked aniston as a brunette as well.

by the way, i love Gugu. she was on the tv show 'undercovers' last year which was canceled after the first season.

HP fans are SO hardcore :) I can get in for $7.50, so I think that isn't too bad.

But Lauren, if it came down to it, I would TOTALLY pick food over movies.

I heard about Undercovers...Not sure where you are from Muse -- did that play in USA? I have never seen it.
