Boy, did we have a good time or what watching the new Hollywood release Horrible Bosses?
We sure did, sweetie. Sure did.
You’ve gotta see this movie, man.
Total Fucking Asshole, Evil Crazy Bitch, Dipshit Cokehead
Some bosses (see above descriptions), eh?
Fine writing, a brisk pace and decent acting turns the fairly simple story-line of Horrible Bosses into a delicious comedy that had the folks at our theater in splits for the most part of this film today.
True to its title, Horrible Bosses deals with the awful bosses of three pals Nick (Jason Bateman), Dale (Charlie Day)and Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) who have reached the end of their limits in dealing with their bosses.
It’s hard to figure who’s got the worst boss of the three buddies.
Dave Harken (Kevin Spacey) is a slave-driver and a “Total Fucking Asshole” who’s been jerking Nick around into believing he’s the favored candidate for Senior VP of sales. Until the day Dave shafts Nick badly over the promotion. Spacey is a fine actor and once again he delivers in great style in a small but important role.
Jennifer Aniston plays the nymphomaniac dentist Julia. An ‘Evil Crazy Bitch,’ Julia is not merely making life hell for her Registered Sex Offender dental hygienist assistant Dale but ups the ante by threatening to torpedo his impending marriage. Man, this woman looks hot with her tits hanging out in one particularly hilarious scene. Whoever knew a skinny frame could bear the weight of such nice tatas so well. 😉
Then there’s the ‘Dipshit Cokehead‘ Bobby Pellitt, played by the fine Irish actor Colin Farrell who’s not only making the priapically-inclined Kurt miserable but running the company, his old-man had carefully built, into the ground.
When requests and protests don’t work with the awful bosses, only one solution is available for Nick, Dale and Kurt.
Yes, folks. The Final Solution, get rid of their bosses.
Ha ha ha. Now the fun gets better as our trio try to hire a killer.
The first attempt is too hilarious for words.
Then, Murder Consultant Dean ‘Motherfucker’ Jones (Jamie Foxx) walks in to liven up things further.
Each of the characters of the three friends is amusing in his own right but as an ensemble, they’re a sweet lollypop you can keep sucking on for the duration of the movie.
Charlie Day, particularly, is a riot!
The laughs keep coming and coming and coming attesting to the great job on the story by Michael Markowitzscript and screenplay writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein.
Go for It
This weekend, you can’t do better than Horrible Bosses at the movies in the U.S.
Horrible Bosses is playing in theaters across the U.S.
And if you do go, don’t miss the Indian connection in Gregory Atmanand, the call center employee. 😉
SearchIndia.com unequivocally recommends Horrible Bosses for all ye schmucks this weekend!
Will watch when it comes out on DVD.
I rarely go to the movies nowadays, the next time I step foot in a theater is to see the final HP (harry potter) movie on the 15th
French film Of Gods and Men is out on DVD at RedBox and Netflix. Has a religious theme with a bunch of priests at the core. We’re getting it tomorrow.
Have you seen office space (1999)? It’s really funny too.. I might skip this one, unless some one who has seen both suggest that this is even better..
Office Space? No.
We took a quick look at Office Space on Wiki and the two movies are as different as cheese and chalk.
Horrible Bosses is less office and more ‘crime.’
Yes, I have seen office space,from the creator of Beavis and Butthead, one of my all time favorites

i was watching Race (2008 with saif ali khan) got bored within 30 min of watching, hope the above movie (horrible bosses) is better
Just another day in Incredible India.
We’re hoping the gory story in your link is not true but that hope rests on a shaky scaffold. 🙁
I do hope its not true..Life is too bizzare.. truth is stranger than fiction.
would like you to review RAN.. nice adaptation of King Lear. and if you can post a review for ‘Spirited Away’
maybe have a look at ‘Nausicaa’ and ‘Castle in the sky’
Will definitely watch and review Ran.
We watched Spirited Away a few weeks back but just unable to summon the enthusiasm for review of an animation film. Maybe, we need to see a few more.
‘the apartment’ one of the films in imdb 250 and copied for one part of ‘life in a Metro’.. its good, love the dialogues.
think it’ll be good to start form the top… lots of good films there.
The Apartment? Soon.
Speaking of current affairs, have you guys read this case?
She got three years and is out this year
1. Yeah, been following the case.
History does repeat itself.
Several decades back another naval officer Nanavati was involved in a similar murder of passion in Mumbai!
2. BTW, what’s with the murder-sex-chop-chop-sex sequence:
Is the presence of a body nearby a Viagra substitute? Marquis de Sade would have been proud of them! 😉
Think maybe the Dracula movies depict the same lust for blood.. always flt the vampire movies were more erotic than horror.
We’ve seen Taste the Blood of Dracula several decades but can’t remember gaining any erotic lift from it. 😉
then maybe you should watch this
We’ll add it to our NFLX queue.
Read through the whole link and not just the Susairaj case.
Stats are just scary.
All of these would have made headlines for atleast a month here.
Btw did you follow Caylee Anthony case which was all over the news for a few weeks? What do you think of the verdict?
1. Read the article in your link.
Even accounting for police officer’s argument in the piece that it’s no longer just unemployed and uneducated committing crimes, we feel people of all social classes have always been committing crimes/robberies/murders in a rage. Such crimes are hardly new.
There was the famous Nanavathi murder case by a Navy Officer in the 1950s.
The power and spread of mass media (particularly, the Internet) is one reason why it may appear more such incidents, isolated as they are in any single geography, are occurring now.
Media likes crime news because it sells. As the famous newsroom saying goes, If it bleeds, it leads.
Doubt the stats are as scary as it may seem prima facie.
2. We follow these
famousinfamous Caylee Anthony type cases only vaguely (i.e. look at the headlines).
Spread of media is certainly a reason but we cannot deny the fact that crime rate is growing at an alarming rate.
We wouldn’t compare crime rate between 1953 and 2006 because that’s a long horizon and you have to account for significant growth in population and various other factors.
If you look at a shorter time horizon, say the crime rate over the 15 years from 1993-2007, Murder has come down significantly while Kidnapping and Rape has gone up. But the increase does not appear alarming.
Agreed to the mentioned facts.
Even I noticed that murder rate is going down where as others are going up which is really hard to understand.
I was mugged when I was in Bangalore (Beaten to pulp).
Police who came to write the reports did not understand English or Hindi and they took more money than those thugs got from me and promised me 6 months, 24 hour protection.. :D.
Non-Murder type crime may be going up but we don’t think it’s alarming.
Media hype + middle class insecurity (in times of rapid societal change) creates the impression that things are spinning out of control.
Given the horrendous income inequalities in India, it’s a shame we don’t have more protests to put pressure on the system to make life just a wee bit better for the poor.
a good quote for the above comment:
Society in every state is a blessing, but government, even in its best stage, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one.
Some weird kind of fetish
To each, his/her fetish! 😉
In Tamil Nadu in the early 80s and late 70s, drumsticks (murungakay) were considered a great aphrodisiac (thanks to Bhagyaraj)!
Ewww…..the visual’s in my head..gross
Thanks for that guys *grin*
The drumstick thingy has left the ‘tongue in cheek’ and has reached the ‘whose name should not be said’ level. It’s like everyone knows its supreme prowess..
Does it (drumstick) really work?
Maybe, we should ask Poornima. 😉
checked out the wiki of moringa.
think I’ll increase the serving as it’s… well … highly nutritious..
I’ve stopped reading the Newspaper or watching the news, as it always gives me a sense of dejavu.. everything seems to be repeating itself and nowadays much frequently.
You write: I’ve stopped reading the Newspaper or watching the news, as it always gives me a sense of dejavu
Did anyone say, The More things change the more they remain the same?
Or is it our gin speaking! 😉
BTW, we haven’t watched TV in weeks (except for a few minutes of Indian TV channels on the iPad) and don’t feel the loss at all.
