You’d think a rude, crude Christmas movie starring Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, T.J. Miller, Olivia Nunn, Kate McKinnon and Jillian Bell would, by mere fact of its existence, would have to be a laugh riot.
You’d be wrong.
Office Christmas Party is fitfully funny at best; occasionally poignant, and mostly humdrum.
In Horrible Bosses 2, Nick, Dale and Kurt – thoroughly tired of answering to higher-ups – set up their own business but get ousted by a slick investor. Once again, they see themselves as being forced to do something reprehensible to save themselves. In theory, hilarity ensues. Which it might – Jennifer Aniston is back, in full sexual predator mode; Jamie Foxx is back as the would-be advisor to the trio’s illegal activities, and even Kevin Spacey is back as one of the first movie’s titular horrible bosses.
The new trailer is promising. Very promising. Check it out after the jump. Horrible Bosses 2 will attack theaters on November 26th.
What would it be like to see Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis together in a movie about a faux family smuggling drugs? Check out the trailer for We’re The Millers above – and the Red Band trailer after the jump – and remember, the question wasn’t whether Aniston would finally be in another good movie… We’re The Millers opens on August 9th.
After he loses his job, George and his wife Linda must moves from NYC to live with his brother in Atlanta. But on their drive south, they discover a commune right out of the 1960s. Deciding to leave the rat race behind, George and Linda give the commune life a try in WANDERLUST.
Judd Apatow may not have directed Wanderlust [that would be David Wain], but his instincts as a producer remain pretty much flawless. Like last year’s Bridesmaids, the trailers for Wanderlust really don’t begin to hint at how funny it really is.

The TV ad campaign for Don’t Go With It is aimed at woman, as a romantic comedy. ‘Tell him it’s a Sandler movie,’ suggests the unctuous voiceover. Well, it’s a Sandler movie that desperately wants to be a romantic comedy – and it doesn’t feature five middle-aged, arrested development twits peeing in a public pool to see if the water turns dark blue – so it’s a bit of ahead of the game there. Almost.
