Movie Info

Anarchic comedy veteran David Zucker directs hot young thing of 2003 Ashton Kutcher in the fast-paced romantic comedy My Boss's Daughter. Kutcher plays rookie executive Tom Stansfield, who wants to impress his demanding boss, Jack Taylor (Terence Stamp), and win the heart of said boss' conventionally attractive daughter Lisa (Tara Reid). In order to achieve these ends, he agrees to housesit at their palatial mansion for one night. Chaos ensues throughout the evening as rowdy houseguests show up

The only real physical comedy in My Boss's Daughter comes from Zucker, Dorfman, and Kutcher stumbling over each other, but it's unlikely anyone will laugh.

Comedy's cardinal rule is never make it look hard, but that wisdom is ignored in My Boss's Daughter.

I believe in a movie's right to die.

The spectacularly unfunny supporting cast -- including Dave Foley, Jeffrey Tambor and David Koechner -- doesn't help either. But luckily Kutcher is there to try to clean up the mess.

In director David Zucker and writer David Dorfman's desperation for ideas, nearly all the 'jokes' come at the expense of Jews, the disabled and victims of spousal abuse.

Zucker ... directs this mess like a substitute teacher soldiering through a day's work for a day's pay at a decertified school.

The real disaster is the slapstick-ridden script, which a great supporting cast is powerless to salvage.

A pretty good cast and a pretty good director are pretty much wasted in My Boss's Daughter.

My Boss's Daughter is a stinker from start to endless finish.

Kutcher comedy is crude, offensive, and all-around bad.

The direction of David Zucker is as uninspired and numbing as the script.

I don't rate this at the bottom of the barrel because the film does have a few funny moments. But I wouldn't recommend it to anyone with the slightest inclination to good taste.

This cute and often surprising comedy is a brazen bid to clone Meet The Parents and it succeeds beyond this reviewer's worst fears.

Kutcher and Reid not only don't light up the screen, they put out the candles.

Ashton Kutcher and Tara Reid belong on magazine covers. In John Zucker's My Boss's Daughter, however, the fetching pair are plucked from their natural habitat and forced to attempt acting.

Some of the worst acting in a movie in 2003.

The simple premise pushes credibility beyond breaking point as ridiculous situations increase in number and size.

It should have been called "My Boss's House" because there was very little focus on the boss's hot daughter.

It could have been worse, but not much. Long-delayed and much feared, My Boss's Daughter is at times painfully unfunny.

Outrageously funny with Ashton Kutcher who 'babysits' his boss's house that becomes a 'madhouse'. But I like the accidentally scenes on Terence Stamp where he was hanging on the tree that makes me laugh!
