Review by Steve Rhodes
1½ stars out of 4

In MY BOSS'S DAUGHTER, likeable actors Ashton Kutcher (JUST MARRIED) and Tara Reid (JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS) co-star in an extremely lame comedy. Also featured is Terence Stamp (THE LIMEY), who starts off smartly playing a gruff, take-no-prisoners boss but ends up having to engage in some embarrassingly bad slapstick. About the only promising moment in the story comes when Reid begins to do a striptease, but the PG-13 rating keeps it tame and brief. Where is an R-rating when you need one to spice up a DOA production?

The plot involves an employee, Tom Stansfield (Kutcher), who is conned by Lisa Taylor (Reid), the daughter of his boss, Jack (Stamp). Lisa wants him to house-sit for her father while he is out of town. She leads Tom to believe that he is coming over for a date. Jack threatens Tom with all manner of bodily harm if anything happens to his pristine mansion.

No sooner has Jack left than people start showing up to trash the place while Tom tries to keep them from messing it up. It's a plot you've had to endure a hundred times before. For jokes there are three instances of people urinating on another person, a handicapped man being abused, and an owl named O.J. -- after the football player, not the murderer, Jack "explains" -- who flies away after drinking cocaine-laced toilet water. Oh yes, there is also a breast cancer joke. Little of the humor works.

Sending this movie directly to video rather than trying to sneak it into the theaters without any advance press screenings would have been kind. After paying full price for this turkey, you are going to wish that you had chosen any other movie.

MY BOSS'S DAUGHTER runs 1:25. It is rated PG-13 for "crude and sex-related humor, drug content and language" and would be acceptable for kids around 12 and up.

My son Jeffrey, age 14, gave it *** 1/2, saying that the movie was hilarious. He thought all of the different subplots blended well and that the cast worked well together.
