As a member of Warner Home Video super exclusive Blu-Ray Elite team, I get access to some of the greatest movies ever made. My mission is to give you how these movies fit in the life of a Dad.
Movie: Horrible Bosses
Who wouldn’t want to kill an awful boss. Horrible Bosses is an underrated comedy, while not ridiculously inventive or even great for that matter there is enough meat on the bones of this movie that I find the movie pretty re-watchable. With outlandish performances from Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston and Colin Farrell the movie has you rooting for our heroes to get their revenge.
Dad Factor: High. This movie was made for adults to watch. This is a definite only for the scene with Jennifer Aniston as a inappropriate dentist. Add in Colin Farrell with his Bill Murray from Kingpin style hair and tiger robes are totally unforgettable.
Kid Factor: Not until they are a bit older (meaning when they are at least teenagers) and even that is a bit of stretch.
Date Factor: High. While not a great movie, it does make for a good conversation between you and your date. In addition in my opinion comedies are usually the best movies to take a date on. While D didn’t really like the movie, she was able to sit through the whole thing and laughed a couple of times.
Cool Blu-Ray Features: The Blu-Ray comes with an extended version of the film with additional content. While I could understand why it wasn’t included in the movie they were still pretty interesting. In addition there was a pretty funny segment where the cast and crew discussed horrible jobs that they have had in the past.
Bottom Line: I think if you give this movie a chance I think you are going to be pleasantly surprised. While it isn’t laugh your pants off funny, it certainly will make for an enjoyable night.
Disclosure: I received a copy of the movie on Blu-Ray for my participation in the Warner Brothers Blu-Ray elite program. These are my unbiased opinions.
