Pellitt: Oh yeah, we gotta trim some of the fat around here

Kurt: Trim the...what do you mean by "trim the fat"?
Pellitt: I want you to fire the fat people

In theaters this weekend are Zookeeper and Horrible Bosses.

Kevin James stars as the Zookeeper in this comedy about a group of zoo animals who decide to help their keeper find romance. The animals break their code of silence to give him tips on how to win a particular ladies' heart so that he does not leave the zoo in search of a more prestigious job. This movie also stars Rosario Dawson, Leslie Bibb, Ken Jeong, Donnie Wahlberg, Joe Rogan and Nicholas Turturro.

So far, the reviews have not been good at all and I have no plans to see it. I think Kevin James is hilarious, I just wish he would be in better movies.

Horrible Bosses is about three friends who all work for awful people. They join together and decide that they should get rid of their bosses. Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis work for Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston and Colin Farrell, respectively. They cannot quit their jobs so they enlist the help of a "murder consultant," played by Jamie Foxx, and decide that each man will take out one of the other's bosses.

I love Charlie Day and this movie looks super funny. So far, it is getting good reviews and I will probably see it tomorrow!

Also in theaters this weekend in limited release are: The Ward, Ironclad and The Ledge (which I have already watched and reviewed).  Also, the documentaries: Project Nim and Beats Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest.
