4 out of 5 stars

Oops, I guess I left this movie out though I’ve seen it long ago. It’s a great movie to watch after work because you just laugh your stress away.

David Clark (Jason Sudeikis) is a street drug dealer who has to smuggle marijuana out of Mexico when he loses his money and stash of drugs to street thugs. He enlists the help of stripper Rose (Jennifer Aniston), teenage runaway Casey (Emma Roberts), and his virginal neighbour Kenny (Will Poulter), to pose as a family to reduce suspicion at the border. Hilarious hijinks ensue and my personal favourite is Kenny rapping along to TLC’s Waterfalls! Their encounter with the Fitzgeralds, another family traveling in a RV, kept things disturbing especially when Rose and Casey were giving Kenny tips on how to kiss girls.

It also shows that sometimes when your own family fails to live up to your expectations, making your own family can be better the real deal.

MEN SEEKING MEN

HORRIBLE BOSSES (2011)
– 3 and a half out of 5 stars

Nick (Jason Bateman), Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) and Dale (Charlie Day) are three friends who believe they have the worst bosses anyone could possibly have. They hatch a plan to kill their bosses and things start to go wrong after they take the advice from someone in the “most dangerous bar”.

Bobby Pellitt: You can fire Professor Xavier.
Kurt: You mean Hank.
Bobby Pellitt: Creeps me out, rolling around all day in his special, little secret chair.

There’s simply too many hilarious moments in this movie to count. The part where Jamix Foxx describes how he got his name, Motherfucker Jones? The part where Jason Sudeikis places the entire bathroom up his ass? The part where Charlie Day gets high on coke, sings “That’s Not My Name” and his tiny jabs?

Also, Colin Farrell and Jennifer Aniston played characters that were way off! Farrell looks weird (hello, combover!) and his comments about a colleague in a wheelchair was outrageous! Aniston was just talking dirty all the time and it’s a bit disconcerting to hear but it’s even more shocking to watch her when she tries to seduce Dale. And it’s so cute because Charlie Day’s voice gets really squeaky when he’s nervous!

Some other familiar faces were John Francis Daley (Sweets from Bones), Ioan Gruffudd and Julie Bowen (Modern Family). Gruffud’s cameo was the funniest! WET WORK!

STAY FOR SOME OUTTAKES DURING THE CREDITS!

DOUBLE THE NEUROTICS

THE SWITCH (2010)
– 3 and a half out of 5 stars

 Caught The Switch and I must say, Sebastian is so cute!

Kassie (Jennifer Aniston) and Wally (Jason Bateman) have been best friends for six years and Kassie decides that she wants to find an eligible male to be a sperm donor so that she can be a single mother before her biological clock ticks out of control. She finds Roland, an athletic male who teaches history, to be her sperm donor. At her “insemination party”, Wally gets wasted and he accidentally spills Roland’s “ingredient” and replaces it with his own. Seven years later, Kassie returns to NYC with her son, Sebastian, whom Wally discovers is a miniature version of his neurotic self. Now, Wally needs to find a way to tell Kassie the truth.

Wally: I have had my bouts about hypochondria.
Sebastian: What’s that?
Wally: Thinking that you have diseases you don’t really have.
Sebastian: Oh my god. I have that.

OMG, Sebastian is so adorable! He may seem a little depressed for a six-year-old but even the way he sighs is so dreamy. My favourite scene of him has to be at the rock wall when he encounters Roland. To me, Sebastian is the main star of the show. The other scene stealer would be Wally’s boss, played by Jeff Goldblum. He actually walkson the treadmill while eating a chocolate bar because it provides him with energy. Wow, right?

HE’S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU (2009)
– 3 and a half out of 5 stars 

CHICK FLICK!

It’s something like a chick flick but not quite. Guess you have to check out its websiteand click on the ‘Top 10 Chick Flick Cliches Not Found In The Movie’ – it’s absolutely hilarious! Basically it’s about the interconnected lives of these people who meets/met/want to meet their love and are decoding the signs that the opposite sex gives. I really love the scene where Neil (Ben Affleck) appears in Beth’s (Jennifer Aniston) dad’s home to help her with the housework after their breakup since Neil didn’t want to marry her after seven years together. It was so touching! The other guys in the house were really useless TV bums. Lucky for Neil and Beth, their ending was nice!
