Well here’s a movie I didn’t expect to love. Horrible Bosses isn’t just good, it’s great. Like, could-maybe-crack-my-top-five-at-the-end-of-the-year great. It’s at least guaranteed a spot in the Top Ten.
Sorta kinda like an uber-raunchy Strangers on a Train (a fact the movie directly references, in one of the funniest exchanges in the flick, which I won’t spoil), Horrible
So... er... why exactly is this movie bad, guys? Because I'm lost. I didn't see one of the worst movies of the year on par with Batman and Robin or Catwoman.
