Horrible Bosses: Successful Bromance Comedy

By July 9, 2011

I'll admit it, I love comedies that are slightly goofy, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that I'm dying to see Horrible Bosses. Incidentally, if you're interested in seeing it, you've got to check out the interview that About.com Guide Rebecca Murray did with Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day when they were at CinemaCon. It's a quick, two-minute clip but right away it had me giggling over something they did. (Rebecca, incidentally, gave the film a four-star review as well.)

Rebecca isn't the only one that obviously enjoyed it. I've been seeing good things written about the movie all over the Internet. One review, from the Monterey County Weekly, really caught my eye because of this line:

"A much more successful bromance comedy than The Hangover 2, Horrible Bosses benefits from the volatile comic mixture of chemistry between its actors and a genuinely quirky script."

Bromance in general is a hot topic these days, and movies that celebrate male bonding have been around for several years. With a few recent flicks, the bromance itself has been the focus of the film, with the storyline secondary. This film seems to be the opposite, which is a good balance and something I hope to see more of.

The other thing that interests me about this movie is that it was penned in part by John Francis Daley. Daley is a Freaks and Geeks alum and currently stars in Bones. It doesn't surprise me that the writing of Horrible Bosses is getting a lot of attention because Daley is super talented and has a great sense of comedic timing. I can't wait to watch the movie.
