Stacy Horrible Bosses

Stacy Horrible Bosses, The fourth major R-rated comedy of the summer may well be the funniest. Torn from the recession zeitgeist, obscene and rude and built around something like a dream cast, “The Boss horrible” is the first film fun to give the “bridesmaids” a run for their money.
This shift in “Strangers on a Train / Throw Momma from the Train” idea swap features Jason Bateman murder as we have seen before, Kevin Spacey, as we have seen many times before and Jennifer Aniston, and I’ve never seen it before – Wicked and nasty and dirty single plane.
The always affable is Nick Bateman, who works for Spacey cruel, heartless and abusive, making a variation of your head into the hell of the classic “Swimming with sharks.” Harken is the kind of entrepreneur who says, “I” am having my teeth whitened Tuesday. That means you have to finish all the work for me on Monday. ”
Charlie Day (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia)) provides a break-out performance as a coward / put-upon Dale. He is committed to Stacy sweet, but it works as a dental hygienist for Julia Evil (Aniston), a sex-crazed b**h that blackmails him to serve her twisted obsessions.
Yes, we should all have problems with Dale. Waiting to know why Dale cannot find another job.
And Jason Sudeikis is Kurt, the loyal employee working for an altruistic leader (Donald Sutherland), until the day the old man croaks wicked cocaine addict and his son (Colin Farrell, along the top and with a bald cap and comb -over) takes over.
“I work for the anti-Christ,” mutters Kurt.
The three friends want their dead chiefs. In this economy, can afford to quit a job without another row? As proposed to hire professional help. Jamie Foxx gets in a cameo Zingy as a “consultant murder.” He is suggesting the “Strangers on a Train / Throw Momma from the Train” idea. Turn assignments – to kill the other bosses. Nobody knows.
What gives this Seth Gordon (“Four Christmases”) comedy juice credible efforts are inept to plan murders and delightful banter between friends? Bateman, Day Sudeikis and talk and talk and interrupt manic-one over the other, as they have been doing for years. Encountered in all the places that men are expected to try to move beyond hate someone planning the death of a stranger.
Bateman, day, and Aniston have great characters to play and are perfect in their roles. Sudeikis and Farrell are cheated a bit in the writing and editing. But when Spacey brings his brand of poison joy to another in a long line of great tyrants, the rest is only entered in the background. When whistles Nick: “You stupid little dwarf, her property,” we believe him. He is so evil that makes the other “ugly heads” seem easy prey.
Yes, we have seen the “spill coke bad guy” gag too many times, yet the car chase is epic – in a Prius, with Dale screaming sex talk on the phone as they do – is still a car chase.
But “ugly head” is fun enough to give beleaguered American working folk an outlet for their frustration, and the U.S. employer classes a bad case of nerves.
