Jason Bateman’s Career Heats Up

This week, I caught up with the hit “Horrible Bosses” at the cineplex. It’s basically a Three Stooges set-up, plus a little “”9 to 5” (a trio plots to murder the bosses) thrown in. The movie gave me a lot of laughs, though almost all of them came from quick-cut editing or gross-out close-ups rather than any smidge of witty dialogue. Jason Bateman, one of the three main roles, is getting a lot of mileage this summer out of hit comedies. Next up he trades places with that tall drink of water Ryan Reynolds in “The Change-Up.” Bateman interviewed here.
