Ashton Kutcher and Molly Shannon in My Boss's Daughter (2003)

No Stamp on Buttocks

Rule of thumb, if a movie features a lot of well known names yet you've never heard of it usually means one things, it's a TURKEY. "My Boss's Daughter" is just one of those movies as not only does it have a cast which features Ashton Kutcher, Tara Reid and Terence Stamp it is also directed by David Zucker yet it is a complete and utter TURKEY. It's a simple enough proposal, a comedy about a love struck employee looking after his tough boss's home and everything goes wrong but nothing which happens in the movie is funny. And after wasting 86 minutes of my life the only person who could have got anything out of this movie is Ashton Kutcher who in one scene gets to feel Carmen Electra's breasts and that's it.

Tom Stansfield (Ashton Kutcher - Just Married) is a bit of a yes man, a nice guy who always seems to be the butt of things out of his control and that doesn't change when he thinks the boss's daughter Lisa (Tara Reid - Van Wilder: Party Liaison) has invited him to a party only to discover he is going to be house sitting for his tough boss Jack Taylor (Terence Stamp). Not wanting to disappoint his boss Tom does what he is told but unfortunately for him everything goes wrong from Jack's drug dealing son Red (Andy Richter) showing up with a heavy after him to a disgruntled former employee showing up with her friends accidentally trashing the place. None of which helps him as he tries to woo Lisa who thinks he is gay.

So as already pointed out "My Boss's Daughter" is a simple movie with Tom house sitting and suffering one accident after another as a pet owl gets loose, people accidentally wreck the place and so on and so fourth till we get to the big calamitous climax. The trouble is that in a movie which sees a mouse run into Tom's pants, a heavy urinating on the floor and lots of other supposedly funny things nothing about it is funny. In truth the only time "My Boss's Daughter" ever gets close to being entertaining is when Carmen Electra is on screen and sadly that is because she not only appears in a wet t-shirt but we also have the scene where Tom fondles her breasts. That just shows how bad this movie is when it is 2 scenes of titillation which end up being the most entertaining.

Aside from that what is surprising about "My Boss's Daughter" is the number of well known faces who show up. In small parts we have Michael Madsen, Carmen Electra, Molly Shannon, Andy Richter and Kenan Thompson all of which are saddled with the same lame humour which the main stars have. Those main stars which are basically Ashton Kutcher, Tara Reid and Terence Stamp all struggle just as much with Stamp being the only one coming close to being funny thanks to playing a nasty boss.

What this all boils down to is that "My Boss's Daughter" is not good and whilst technically a romantic comedy is neither romantic nor a comedy. As I said, it says a lot about a movie when the most entertaining it gets is when it titillates with Carmen Electra's breasts with only Ashton Kutcher being the one to benefit from them.
