You know, I would just love to take a dump all over “Horrible Bosses 2” (2014). (I’m only speaking metaphorically. Jennifer Aniston’s character might be inside my head a little bit.) But dang it, I just can’t. I mean, it made me laugh out loud a couple of times. My expectations were low. (It’s a sequel to a ridiculous 2011 film in which three wimpy everymen plot revenge and hijinks ensue.) It met them. It’s another disposable Jason Bateman comedy. Jamie Foxx’s character is understatedly funny and “How You Like Me Now” by The Heavy is a great theme song.

These dude-oriented, R-rated movies are all starting to run together. “Horrible Bosses” (2011) is funny, but it’s not even a real movie. It’s just a bunch of funny shit strung together, like a 98-minute-long sitcom. Why is Jason Sudeikis (Did I even spell that right? Do I even care?) suddenly such a ladies’ man? Wasn’t he having trouble getting laid in last week’s episode (also known as “Hall Pass”)? And why is Jason Bateman OK with killing Jennifer Aniston? Wasn’t he her best friend the other week (also known as “The Switch”)? And why isn’t Charlie Day also called Jason?

Whatever it is that movie snobs love about Diane Keaton is probably the opposite of what I love about Jennifer Aniston. Guess what I thought about “Just Go With It,” Aniston’s 2011 romantic comedy with Adam Sandler? The plot is like a too-long episode of “Three’s Company” (physical comedy – bleh) but I still end up rooting for her to win the guy (Like she couldn’t do better than Sandler? Like Brooklyn Decker’s pneumatic vacuousness is competition? Talk about willing suspension of disbelief!). Anyway, whatever she’s selling, I’m buying, even when she’s trying play a put-upon single mom. Must. Suspend. Disbelief.
