My Boss's Daughter Reviews

Scott Tobias

Top Critic IconTop Critic

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.

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.

Zucker orchestrates the gags with great relish, lunging for the funny bone with sweetly idiotic characters, relentless slapstick, and topping sight gags.

Tries screwball and gross-out comedy and fails on both counts.

Even after sitting through it you can't swear you've seen it. It vanishes while you watch, like disappearing ink.

This muddled comedy of confusion feels as if it were a Farrelly brothers' comedy that has sat exposed to the elements long past its expiration date.

Three-year-old, brain-dead variant of Risky Business.

It is a genial youth comedy that serves Kutcher well as a vehicle. That's it. That's all it tries to be.

The mishaps are mostly misfires, and the situations all feel contrived.

If you thought Ashton Kutcher's movie career had nowhere but up to go after Dude, Where's My Car?, wait until you see My Boss's Daughter.

This is a movie that boggles the mind: a bad-taste comedy that makes the average effort by the Farrelly Brothers (mysteriously thanked in the credits) look like a Merchant-Ivory film.

With [Kutcher and Reid] as the star-crossed couple, the title of this movie should have been Zero Plus Zero Equals Zero.
