Jennifer Aniston Plays Against Type

Jennifer Aniston has always been an incredibly gifted comic actress. After her terrific comedic turn in Friends to her recent turn in Just Go With It, one thing is for certain: Audiences have never seen Jennifer Aniston like she is in Horrible Bosses.

Horrible Bosses not only stars Jennifer Aniston, but also a stellar cast including Kevin Spacey, Jason Bateman, Julie Bowen, Jamie Foxx, Colin Farrell, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis.

The comedy follows Nick (Bateman), Kurt (Sudeikis) and Dale (Day) as they navigate their daily lives with the worst imaginable bosses.

Nick has to deal with the steely Spacey, Kurt is constantly dealing with abhorrent issues from Farrell and Day is to deflect constant sexual inappropriateness from Aniston.

They are too invested in their jobs to resign. So, what to do? After a few cocktails, the trio gets some advice from an ex-con (Foxx) and hatches a plot to rid themselves of their Horrible Bosses.

Among the thrills from the Horrible Bosses trailer premiere is watching Farrell with a cinematic comb-over for the ages. Kudos to the Irish actor for letting his normally good looks go for the sake of comedy.

Also of note is, as we mentioned, Aniston's coming out as a raunchy comic player. If audiences don't look at her completely differently after seeing her in Horrible Bosses, we'd be surprised.

Horrible Bosses arrives in theaters July 8.

I didn't know you still watched DVDs.Also, why you thuhogt this movie had promising appeal eludes me. This looked terrible from the get-go. The concept would have made for interesting comedy of the blacker variety and might have been better suited to an indy film where what makes a boss so detestable and what drives an everyday joe to consider murder could have been more fully explored. Instead, you get the Hollywood take, where the people in films bear no resemblance whatsoever to real people and are instead 1-dimensional caricatures of reality.As much as I liked Jason Bateman in Arrested Development, there is little he has done since then that is of any appeal. To anyone. From The Breakup to Extract to Couples Retreat, from last year's The Switch to this year's The Change-Up its been misfire after misfire. Maybe Arrested Development was the fluke, and all these craptastic comedies are the real Bateman.
