HORRIBLE BOSSES 2horrible_bosses_2

“How can three men combine into such a thrumming dynamo of idiocy? These dummies can’t even use walkie talkies without screwing up.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

“Indeed, if any movie deserves to be damned with faint praise, HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 is it.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“Not since TMC showed a triple feature of FRANCIS THE TALKING MULE movies has an audience been subjected to three braying asses like the ones found starring in HORRIBLE BOSSES 2.” – John Black, Boston Event Guide

“The improvisation, and there’s a ton of it, goes on and on and on and on and…repeating a lame joke doesn’t make it funny; it makes it miserable. – David Riedel, Santa Fe Reporter

HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 is an alleged comedy that needs to be skipped by anyone who wants to watch something that’s actually funny.” - Jaskee Hickman, The Movie Picture Show

“Though based on a true story ripped from the tabloids, Miller’s vision is an effective mediation on power and exploitation.” – Kristofer Jenson, Dig Boston

“It’s a shame that the horror that unfolds deviates so far from reality, at least when it comes to chronology.” – Brett Michel, The Improper Bostonian

FOXCATCHER is a film that viewers will appreciate for all that it is.” – Jaskee Hickman, The Movie Picture Show

PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR

“This is sheer, unadulterated fun. You don’t need to be a kid to enjoy PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“Malkovich’s performance is so over-the-top, and perfect in that way, you almost wish the movie was show in a split screen so you could watch him work.” - John Black, Boston Event Guide

“Instead of appealing to both age groups, PENGUINS uses the presumed wants of each as an excuse to disappoint the other.” – Inkoo Kang, The Wrap
