STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

VERDICT – 3/5

 
PROS –
1) As funny as the prequel. A new plot for the sequel instead of recycling the same story.
2) Jennifer Aniston as Dr. Julia is as impressive as before. Kevin Spacey prison visits were hilarious.
3) The wobbling trio of Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day ensures the audiences will get their money’s worth.
4) A good supporting cast including Christoph Waltz & Jonathan Banks. Chris Pine as Rex surprises in his comedic role. Jamie Foxx as MF Jones returns for one hell of a police car chase

 

CONS –
N/A

Horrible Bosses (2011)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 1
CULT – 1

VERDICT – 5/5

 
PROS –
1) Seth Gordon’s laugh-riot about three employees trying to murder their respective bosses with the help of a video bootlegger called “MF” Jones. That’s how you make a good black-comedy movie.
2) Jennifer Aniston as Dr. Julia. She still keeps on surprising the audiences with her various shades.
3) Great supporting cast completed with Kevin Spacey & Colin Farrell.
4) Even in the presence of Jason Sudeikis & Jason Bateman, Charlie Day as Dale clearly stole the show.
5) End credits: How You Like Me Now? (The Heavy song)

 
CONS –
N/A

Juno (2007)

STORY – 0
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 1
CULT – 0

Verdict – 3/5

Pros –
1) All credits to Jason Reitman for making a movie on a complicated topic as a feel-good funny fairy tale movie.
2) Great casting.Definitive Ellen Page role.
3) Well written screenplay with funny dialogues.
4) Refreshing soundtrack – “All I Want Is You” 
5) Opening credits with rotoscoped Juno.

 

Cons –
1) Teenage pregnancy is no fun topic. Unlike “Knocked Up”, here we have a teenage school kid getting pregnant in a utopian ideal environment and everyone is behaving as if it’s completely normal.
2) Primary plot is ordinary. Even the reaction of Juno is surprisingly calm. Any ordinary kid would freak out in such situation.
