Postcard Review: Horrible Bosses
Dear Horrible Bosses,
Comedy can come from any number of places. Your humor, though, comes from a place a little more delicate and difficult to pull off; watching a group of inherently decent people attempt the indecent, their every move sinking them deeper and deeper into a realm of absurdity that only highlights their criminal ineptitude.
Are you an instant classic of the humor genre? Perhaps not. Not everyone can be an Airplane! or Caddyshack. Sometimes we just need a well written, well acted, and competently directed comedy that comes, does its job well, and then slides off in the distance of our memory only to be awakened on a lazy Saturday afternoon on Netflix instant play.
You are that movie, and I can’t wait to sit on the couch one day with a beer and some good friends and watch you all over again.
Loving you just the way you are,
Brian J. Roan
