New movies: ‘Horrible Bosses,’ ‘Cameraman’


Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day and Jason Bateman star in the new comedy “Horrible Bosses.” (John P. Johnson - Warner Bros. Pictures)
In this week’s new movies, three men plot to kill their bosses, a boy with Tourettes Syndrome goes on a road trip and Kevin James sacrifices his body in the name of comedy. Here’s what the Post critics had to say:


Horrible Bosses” (R) “If the sweetly gentle, almost naive rom-com ‘Larry Crowne’ is from Venus, then the testosterone-crazed ‘Horrible Bosses’ is from Mars. Or maybe Uranus. (Yes, it’s that far out there.)” — Michael O’Sullivan


Cameraman: The Life and Work of Jack Cardiff” (Unrated) “‘Cameraman’ should be required viewing for anyone interested in becoming more visually literate in an ever-more-media-drenched age. What’s more, it’s chock-full of yummy anecdotes from Cardiff’s work...” — Ann Hornaday


Zookeeper” (PG) “[Kevin James is] at his best when his enormous heart and innate vulnerability shine through the slapstick antics screenwriters love to throw at him, which happens to be the case in Frank Coraci’s ‘Zookeeper.’” — Sean O’Connell


Vincent Wants to Sea” (Unrated) “Fortunately, the awkward comic spirit eventually subsides, as does the sense that you’ve heard this story, or its moral, before: We’re all broken in some way, love heals all wounds or some such thing. Predictability gives way to touching drama.” — Michael O’Sullivan
