My Boss's Daughter Movie Review
David Zucker, the man behind the Naked Gun movies and 2003's Scary Movie 3, seemingly was asleep when he made My Boss's Daughter, an absolutely stupid and pointless film starring Ashton Kutcher.
My Boss's Daugher has Kutcher playing a businessman who finds himself duped into watching his boss's mansion for an evening with the hope of getting it on with the man's daughter (Tara Reid). Of course, things aren't as easy as they seem as a variety of strange guests show up, all ready to trash the place for a variety of reasons. That's the plot, and the extent of the jokes as well.
Kutcher, who is hilarious in Fox's "That 70's Show," has proved to be a little flat on the big screen. My Boss's Daughter is his worst entry so far, as he typical flare for humor is nowhere to be seen. He awkwardly spits out lines, trying to find something funny in them, but fails. Everything isn't his fault - the screenplay is terrible - but he could at least put on a Kelso stunt just to keep the audience slightly entertained. Of course, he could have just agreed to never have done this so-called movie in the first place.
Basically, My Boss's Daughter is so stupid that it is impossible to watch it from beginning to end. After half an hour, it became clear that nothing interesting was going to happen, so out came the remote and scene-skipping began. Thank God for DVD. Every once in a while, I'd let the movie run for a few minutes in hopes of seeing what the R-rated version is all about, but alas, there is nothing. It is that disappointing.
My Boss's Daughter is a waste of time and money. It is amazing that so many recognizable names are attached to such a film, as the screenplay is one of the worst ever conceived.
