The Film: Horrible Bosses

Horrible Bosses

There’s presumably an intrinsic humour in this week’s literally-titled moving picture release in the fact that Colin Farrell is going against type as a creep-with-a-comb-over (you’ve seen the sex tape, right?!), ditto Jennifer Aniston as a sexual predator, but Seth Gordon’s big movie breakthrough, Horrible Bosses, (if you don’t count Four Christmases. And no-one counts Four Christmases) actually wins through as a witty diatribe against the American Dream. Basically, it’s a bunch of ego-maniacal bosses who inspire murder in their staff. Sounds familiar! The casting is near perfect, with the murder arc actually coming across as more of a slightly annoying sub-plot to drive the infinitely more entertaining repartee between characters, which is this film’s strength – that and Jamie Foxx as the crazy-as-a-bed-bug murder consultant.

    How can you ignore the fact the jennifer aniston’s character uses the term ‘faggot’? Once again another hollywood film showing the world that this is an acceptable slur. 😦
