"Horrible Bosses" or CARA IF SHE WAS A DENTIST

I have had a few bosses in my time that I could not stand. Granted, I don't think I ever wanted to kill She-Thing. Trip her yes, but my boss was never one of the following:

a.) a sex-crazed deviant
b.) a coke-addicted tool
c.) a pure evil psychopath

do you think if I had a boss along these lines I would have had a similar reaction to the three bromantic protagonists of Horrible Bosses? Possibly. 

It's not as funny as Bridesmaids, which is the movie which all future 2011 comedies will be judged by from here on out. But it's a lot better than Bad Teacher and ends up leaving the audience with a fascinating, somewhat complex plot. 

Yet the big key for this movie to succeed is the interaction and dialogue, back-and-forth between the three protagonists, a group of friends (who all loathe their superiors)- Jason Sudekis, Jason Bateman (HOLLA USELESS CRITIC FAVORITE) and Charlie Day, who I have just been introduced to and think is wonderful. Divine, really. Especially when he accidentally ingests a large portion of cocaine, begins doing push-ups and has the best Ting Tings singalong in history of Ting Tings singalongs. You get the feeling these three guys are really great friends in real life, because SO MUCH of the movie is just them talking shit over but it works. It really works.

Shout-outs to Kevin Spacey and Jennifer Aniston for their roles, too. J. Aniston is probably the bitchiest/sluttiest I have ever seen her at and I fully approve. Every time she got on screen I was like HELL YEAH and normally I can't stand her. She makes Charlie Day so uncomfortable as his horny dentist and even tries to get him to mount her on top of the unconscious body of his fiance. PERFECTION. Cara, dentistry? You feel me? Kevin Spacey plays a brilliant cold-hearted psycho with not an ounce of good in his black, black heart. Seriously. But when doesn't Kevin play a psycho?  Also his wife is super-hot and boning the whole neighborhood. It happens.

Colin Farrell is presently trying to venture into "comeback" territory. Is it working? Fright Night is going to suck balls, let's be honest with each other. Here he shows how he has fallen from action hero to playing a comedic scuzzbag. But he does so well. Do you think he's douchy in real life? Probably.

The writing is fairly strong and Jamie Foxx has a good turn as an ex-con (FOR WHAT I AM NOT TELLING YOU IT'S JUST THAT GOOD) named "Motherfucker Jones." Jason Sudekis is impossible for me to differentiate from that other guy in the Hangover/the Office. There are slow moments and sometimes it seems to be trying too hard but it's really an entertaining experience. And you get sucked into the story easily, or Jennifer Aniston's stained panties, yadda yadda yadda.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to , single women are presented with

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it
