This summer a few of the guys that brought you beloved gems like ‘The Hangover’ and ‘Wedding Crashers’ decided to take their stab at the 80’s and make a body swapping raunch-com. The question of the day though is whether or not ‘The Change-Up’ is actually bringing anything new to the table that might make the movie worth the cost of admission.
Reviewing a comedy is one of the hardest things to do in the film journalism world. Unlike action movies or drama flicks, a comedy is completely dependent on one thing, and one thing only; did you laugh? It could be terribly directed and have a piss poor plot but, if you laughed enough, none of that would really matter anyways. So going into this review of Horrible Bosses, know this; I cannot understand your sense of humor. To do that, I imagine it would take weeks of long, hard psychoanalysis. But I do know mine. And for what it's worth, Horrible Bosses tickled my funny bone just right.
Bridesmaids, The Hangover: Part II, Bad Teacher, 30 Minutes or Less, The Change-Up, and Horrible Bosses. That's all the comedy films being released this summer. Now that's what I call a summer!
