Despite Some Horrible Predictions, Horrible Bosses Kills At The Box Office

Horrible Bosses Box Office Blitz

We're not surprised!

A chance to see Jennifer Aniston go psycho sexpot? Who wouldn't want to see that!?!

The raunchy R-rated comedy has now joined the ranks of Bridesmaids and Bad Teacher when it comes to winning box office numbers for the genre.

Even with a less than normal amount of movie-goers, the $37 million Horrible Bosses was able to pull off $28 million its first weekend!

That's well on track to crazy profit land!

And while Transformers: Dark of the Moon still reigns at #1, Horrible Bosses beat out other newcomer, The Zoo Keeper, taking the top spot for comedies.

Jeff Goldstein, an executive vice president at Warner Bros., thinks it's all about America's need for an over-the-top laugh-fest:

I think audiences have shown this summer that they want to go out and just have fun. There’s a lot of reality out there that’s too sobering, and people like to go and laugh in a theater. ’Horrible Bosses’ was cool and hip, but it was also something that people can relate to — having the boss from hell. Just like everyone who saw ’The Hangover’ knows what it’s like to go out and have a wild night.

So basically it's like this. If you haven't seen it yet, what are you doing with your life? Go get those tickets!

    WELL, SAY IT RIGHT PEREZ. IT WAN'ST BECAUSE OF JEN ANISTON, IT HAD TO DO WITH THE SUPPORTING CAST, NOBODY WENT TO SEE THE MOVIE BECAUSE BECAUSE OF HER. I DON'T KNOW A SINGLE PERSON EVER TO SAY, "JEN! HORRAY!" I'D GLADLY PAY $12 TO SEE CHARLIE DAY ACT NUTS ANY DAY OF THE WEEK!!! BUT ANISTON, LET'S JUST SAY ANYONE COULD HAVE PLAY THAT PART AND THE BOX OFFICE RESULTS WOULD HAVE BEEN THE SAME.

    Re: MarcTennisNJ – Agreed - a lot of other actresses could have played that role better. If I want to see Aniston, I will just watch Friends reruns. If it wasn't for her marriage and divorce from Brad, her career would be the same as her other Friends.

    Jennifer FatAssOpoulous can't act for beans. Truly, a dreadful actress. Always the same role - Rachael from 'Friends'. But, at least she got a movie to pay for all that cat food for her 6 cats ! MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWW!

    Jennifer Aniston was hot in this film!! HILARIOUS! And her characters comments were appropriate for the type of person she was playing. :)

    Not a big Jenifer Anison fan, but i got to say, she steals the movie. Her performance had me laughing all through the movie. Dont quite understand the haters here, but i doubt if another actress would be better. She shrewed, funny and i believe in a movie full of talent, she rose above. Defintely give credit to where it goes. Jenifer Aniston for best Supp. actress

    the chemistry of the 3 guys who play buddies in the movie-and the great writing is what makes this movie
    .
    Aniston's role could have been played by any of a number of actresses- it wouldn't have mattered- the movie would have still been a hit–nothing against her- but it's true
    .
    Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis
    MAKE THE MOVIE GREAT!!!

    Why do you always do this perez? always give credit to only one actor when the cast is filled with talented people. you did this with bad teacher as well saying it was all Cameron. and seriously like 6 months ago you HATED jen aniston and now your kissing her ass every chance you get.



  12. 12

    haha i dont know why everyone is making jen look like the star, she wasnt even in the film much. its about the trio not her.

    Re: MarcTennisNJ – Why the hell are you yelling!! are you crazy??



  14. 14

    I think she did a fantastic job



  15. 15

    Aniston should win an Oscar for hjer performance./.it was outstanding



  16. 16

    she wasn't in the movie all that much. i thought charlie day made the movie the most but didn't think it was all that good. i even saw about 5 different people leave not even half way through the movie. just wonder if they got their money back considering it wasn't that great. perez you where alot better when you wasn't kissing ass and sucking up what did jen threating to sue your ass. and by the way saw your pics in this week magazine keep it up you looking good maybe you can bring justin throwup out of the closet and steal him from jen like she stole him from heidi. sure will be hard to forget a girl of 14 years nomatter who you date .

    Re: iloverickymartin – You are obviously an idiot. Only ppl with low IQ would pay to see cheap sleezy movies like this. This is true DVD material, ask around Aniston sucks and have to bring actors to pull her weight in a movie. This type of movie is typical of what Aniston plays..ruining a profession selected for the movie. This movie is disgusting and meant to degrade others, I'm so sick of Aniston!!!! What a shame movies she makes are all stupid and would have been hilarious if played by younger, smarter and beautiful actor than Aniston. Better to go camping and playing outside instead of spending money of screwed up movies. Only idiots go for movies like this and with this fugly in it!
