Not to be taken seriously at all. There are no morals. This is amoral. People will be offended by the intentions and behaviour shown in this film. I loved it. Political correctness takes a backseat as we watch three men who hate their horrible bosses and so plot to murder them. I'm happy to put political correctness aside and laugh along as Charlie Day, Jason Bateman and Jason Sudeikis create ridiculous situations and perform their schtick. This hilarious comedy was consistently funny. It was non-stop laughter throughout. This can be attributed to the ridiculous, far-fetched plot and terrific performances by the entire cast. The three leads share real chemistry and work well off each other with their hilarious banter. The three bosses are brilliant. There's the slave driving psycho played by Kevin Spacey, the sleezy tool played by Colin Farrell and the sex crazy maneater played by Jennifer Aniston. It's Aniston whom gets the most laughs, playing against type using fouth language and playing a really slutty role for laughs. Not only is she sexy, she's reminds everyone what a great comedienne she is. With this performance, and Kristen Wiig's role in 'Bridesmaids' earlier in the year, 2011 has proven to be a triumph for female comedy.... Although don't get me wrong, this is definitely a 'guy' movie and Aniston's role is directed at a male audience. People will be offended. I was not.
There has been a trend in recent times where beloved and cherished films of yesteryear have been unnecessarily resurrected as belated weak sequels. Indiana Jones, Rocky, Die Hard, Alien and Predator, A Nightmare on Elm Street are some that come to mind. You may even put Star Wars on that list with its prequels. Despite this, I was not worried when I heard that there would be a thrid installment to Toy Story, my favourite movie as a child. The gap between Toy Story 1 and 2 was four years, which is respectable. It's been eleven years since Toy Story 2, so it seems like it's been too long for the third insallment to be released, right? Wrong. The reason I was not worried was because I knew the movie was in safe hands: Pixar, the best animation studio that hasn't made a bad film to date (although 'Cars' was close). They have made some amazing films over the years, such as 'Finding Nemo', 'Wall-E' and 'Up' to name a few. But none have been better than Toy Story 1 & 2. Just over a decade has passed since Toy Story 2, so Pixar does the right thing and sets the story 10 years later. The themes from the previous film, being children outgrowing and abandoning their toys, is retained here. This is the story that shows what happens to the toys once their owner, Andy, is a teenager and is about to leave for college and so must decide what to do with his cherished toys. Emotional, nostalgic, but still funny as hell. Watching this movie was like being reunited with old friends. From the epic opening sequence which is a reference to Andy playing with his toys in both Toy Story 1 & 2, when Randy Newman's song 'You've got a friend in me' kicks in, we are immediately brought back into the world of Toy Story, which we have missed for so many years, well I have anyway... Those who grew up watching Toy Story like I have, will appreciate this film most. This is also a reminder on how sophisticated animated films can be, and how long awaited sequels can work. Compare the Toy Story franchise to the Shrek franchise..... Pixar are kings while Dreamworks, and other animation studios are, well, very very very inferior. Here, Pixar gently put a closed lid on this beloved story of Woody and Buzz and gives them the send off they, and we, deserve. I will love Toy Story to infinite and beyond (sorry I couldn't help myself).
