Highly respected theatre director Arnold Albertson could not have made more of a mistake when he spends the night with a young and attractive escort named Izzy; now determined to become an actress, she turns up at auditions for his next big Broadway show the following day. To make matters even more awkward, his wife Delta is already cast in the upcoming play and Izzy's remarkable skill leaves him no choice but to take her on to avoid suspicion from the rest of the impressed cast. Unfortunately, it isn't long before Delta's co-star and ex-boyfriend Seth (who happens to still be in love with Delta) finds out about Arnold's brazen infidelity, and with this hanging over him, Arnold has no idea if show will go on if the truth comes out. Izzy is also causing a stir in other people's love lives; her therapist Jane has fallen head over heels for Arnold's playwright Joshua, but he only has eyes for Izzy. Who knew one girl could be so much trouble?

Wacky enough to make us smile but never laugh out loud, this screwball comedy harks back to those nutty 1970s farces Woody Allen used to make about a group of neurotic urbanites. Actually, filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich used to make those kinds of movies too (1972's What's Up Doc is a classic). But he gives this film an oddly muted tone and uneven cast, which leaves it enjoyably silly even though it's never very funny.
It's set in a version of Manhattan where everyone sees the same shrink, eats in the same restaurant and stays at the same hotel, conveniently. Isabella (Imogen Poots) is working as a hooker, and her next john is Arnold (Owen Wilson), who offers her $30,000 if she gives up being a call girl after tonight and pursues her dream of becoming an actress. Then when she goes for her first Broadway audition, she's shocked to discover that Arnold is the director, and her costars would be his wife Delta (Kathryn Hahn) and leery actor Seth (Rhys Ifans), who knows what she used to do for a living. Another ex-client (Austin Pendleton) is obsessing because Isabella has vanished, so he visits the tetchy therapist Jane (Jennifer Aniston), who not only happens to also be counselling Isabella but is dating the playwright Joshua (Will Forte) who fell for Isabella at her audition.
The entanglement between these seven characters is recounted in flashback as Isabella is interviewed by a jaded Hollywood reporter (Illeana Douglas), so the film has a rather episodic structure as it traces each slapstick encounter between these people. With the plot so ludicrously convoluted, it's up to the actors keep us entertained, and they're a mixed bag. Aniston is surprisingly funny as the short-tempered psychologist who really should be in therapy herself, and Hahn gets the balance just right between the manic emotion and the darker comedy. Ifans has his moments as well, creeping around the corners of most scenes. But Poots never quite convinces in the focal role, while Wilson merely recycles his usual hapless routine and Forte gets lost in the shuffle as the token nice guy.

Following her 10-year stint on the world's most popular sitcom, Jennifer Aniston is showing off an almost unseen 'serious side' in 'Cake'.
With her stripped-down dramatic performance in 'Cake', everyone sat up to take notice of Jennifer Aniston's acting skills. Critics have called it an "anti-vanity vehicle", a role without make-up, hairstyling and flattering lighting.
Jennifer Aniston is best known for playing Rachel in 'Friends'
It's not as if this is Aniston's first serious awards-contending role. In 2002 she caused pretty much the same buzz with her turn in the similarly un-glamorous drama 'The Good Girl'.
Continue reading: 'Cake' Shows Jennifer Aniston's Serious Side
Jennifer Aniston delivers an Oscar-calibre performance in this rather over-worked drama, which tries to emphasise heavy-handed metaphors more than the characters themselves. But it's an involving personal odyssey thanks to Aniston's honest acting, and Daniel Barnz's sensitive direction manages to dodge most of the script's more glaring pitfalls.
Aniston plays Claire, a woman who has been in continual pain, both emotional and physical, following the car accident that claimed the life of her young son. Revelling in her bitter sarcasm, she has alienated her husband (Chris Messina), driven her physiotherapist (Mamie Gummer) to despair and so enraged her therapy leader (Felicity Huffman) that she's been thrown out of the group. The only person who patiently sticks by her side is her maid/assistant Silvana (Adriana Barazza), and she's beginning to waver. Then Nina (Anna Kendrick), a therapy-group member, commits suicide, making Claire question why she's still bothering to be alive. There has to be a spark of hope there, and she decides to stalk Nina's single-dad widower Roy (Sam Worthington) for answers.
While the premise seems to set up the usual story about two damaged souls healing each other, the story thankfully doesn't go down that tired route. Instead, Patrick Tobin's script keeps the interaction prickly and unexpected, even as it layers in so much symbolism that it becomes rather exhausting. Claire's physical scarring is clearly indicative of something deeper, as is her array of cruel defence mechanisms. Thankfully, Aniston plays these scenes with a mixture of black comedy and aching sadness that makes the character thoroughly involving and only slightly likeable. Her interaction with Barraza is the heart of the film, beautifully played because their connection remains mainly unspoken. By contrast, Worthington feels almost superfluous; he sharply matches Aniston's cynicism, but is too nice to register very strongly.

Jennifer Aniston wins the Montecito while Amy Poehler takes this year's Hasty Pudding. The Magic Mike XXL trailer promises lots of beefcake, The Cobbler offers laughs, Lost River appears darkly emotive, and animated SpongeBob and Minions adventures look like a lot of fun...
She may not be up for an Oscar this year, but Jennifer Aniston was awarded the Montecito Award at the Santa Barbara Film Festival, which is currently running in California. She looked sleek and starry as she accepted the award.
With preparation well underway for his latest Broadway show, director Arnold Albertson (Owen Wilson) heads to New York to begin casting. While there, he has a one-night-stand with a young starlet named Izzy (Imogen Poots). He is then shocked to discover her attending his audition the next day, where she performs alongside his wife Delta (Kathryn Hahn) and performs so well that he has to give her the part. As if that wasn't enough, Abertson's leading man (Rhys Ifans) knows about the affair, and also is in love with Delta. And if THAT wasn't enough, Izzy's therapist Jane (Jennifer Aniston), has fallen in love with the show's playwright Josh (Will Forte), who in turn has fallen in love with Izzy. All that remains, is to find out if the play with succeed with so many forces acing against it.

The widow of the 45-year-old actress' self-proclaimed "first love" has fired back in heartfelt message about late actor Daniel McDonald.
Earlier this month, the usually private Jennifer Aniston spoke very candidly about her former partners, including the devastating loss of her "first love," who tragically passed away from a brain tumour in 2007.
Aniston is now happily engaged to Justin Theroux
This unknown man has now been identified as late actor Daniel McDonald, and during an interview with the New York Times, the former 'Friends' alum admitted "He was my first love - five years we were together. He would have been the one. But I was 25, and I was stupid. He must have sent me Justin to make up for it all."
Claire Bennett is struggling to get through day-to-day life despite her buffet of pills, one-on-one medical support and the Women's Chronic Pain Support Group she regularly attends. She is forced to cope with the heart-breaking break-up of her relationship but becomes deeply obsessed with the suicide of Nina Collins, another woman from the support group. In a bid to learn more about her death and, indeed, her life, she persuades the group leader to pass on Nina's address. It's then she meets her widower Roy with whom she strikes up a significant relationship, with both of them dealing with the loss of a loved one and their own brand of chronic pain. Meanwhile, Claire frequently experiences hallucinations of Nina, who slowly draws her towards normality and, perhaps, a happier life.

Will Jennifer Aniston be nominated for an Oscar? We say....yes, probably yes.
All the talk in Hollywood this morning suggests Jennifer Aniston - Rachel Green from Friends - will secure her first Oscar nomination for the indie-drama Cake. Some media outlets are reporting that she has secured her first Oscar nomination while others talk as if it's a foregone conclusion.
Jennifer Aniston could be nominated for an Oscar today
The reality is quite different. Aniston may well be included in the list of Best Actresses of the past year when the nominations are read out this morning, though she is likely to be vying for one vacant nomination. Julianne Moore is the big favourite to win the award in February and will undoubtedly be nominated for her tour-de-force turn in Still Alice. Amy Adams - a darling of the Academy despite never getting her hands on a statuette - will also be nominated for Big Eyes. Reese Witherspoon was the early frontrunner for the award and should get a nod for Wild. And here's where things get interesting.

Aniston recently spoke about her unnamed "first love" who passed away
The 45-year-old actress' love life has often been at the centre of many media outlets throughout the last decade, mainly due to her high-profile divorce from Hollywood star Brad Pitt.

The 45-year-old actress and her fiancé are still trying to figure out what kind of wedding day they want.
Jennifer Aniston's recent willingness to open up about her personal life continues as she is now speaking candidly about preparing for marriage with fiancé Justin Theroux, and planning the couple's special day.
Aniston has been willing to open up about her personal life as of late
Aniston, who is nominated for a Golden Globe for her role in the drama 'Cake,' spoke candidly about these topics with the February issue of InStyle, and firstly revealed why she and Theroux have remained engaged for so long.
The 45-year-old actress' split from Pitt in 2005 is still generating a lot of attention from the media nearly a decade later.
Jennifer Aniston's personal life has always garnered lots of interest since her well-publicised split from husband Brad Pitt in 2005, which intensified after the Hollywood actor began a relationship with his 'Mr. & Mrs. Smith' co-star Angelina Jolie shortly after, but nearly ten years later and Aniston has moved on in every way.
Aniston recently opened up about her ex-hubby Brad Pitt
Since their separation, Pitt is raising six children with Jolie, whom he married in August 2014, and Aniston is engaged to actor Justin Theroux. However, the infamous breakup is still a highlight in the celebrity world from the last decade, and the 45-year-old actress was once again probed about her ex-hubby on CBS Sunday Morning.
Jennifer Aniston, in an interview set to air on Sunday (4th January), explains how she copes with the constant media attention focussed on her personal life.

The 45-year-old actress recently opened up about an issue she has in the bedroom.
Although Jennifer Aniston is currently one of Hollywood's most sought-after actresses, off camera the 45-year-old starlet has a major problem when it comes to the bedroom, she cannot sleep at night due to her ongoing battle with insomnia.
Aniston has trouble with sleepless nights
During a recent appearance on 'The Dr. Oz Show,' Aniston opened up about her sleepless nights, and even asked the host if she was "going to die young" because of it.
The Hollywood star recently expressed her frustration with incessant rumours claiming she is too "selfish" for motherhood.
At 45-years-old Jennifer Aniston is still one of Hollywood's most sought-after actresses, but she didn't sacrifice motherhood for success, and the constant tabloid stories that speculate if she is or isn't pregnant can put her, as well as all women, under unnecessary "pressure."
Aniston shot down rumours that claim she is too "selfish" to have children
Aniston, who is currently engaged to Justin Theroux, recently opened up to Allure magazine's January 2015 issue about the ongoing rumours of her fertility, and facing false accusations that she is too "career-driven" for parenthood.
Like The Hangover, Horrible Bosses was a movie no one really wanted to see a sequel to, but here it is anyway: the same film, but even more inane. It is also likely to make plenty of money from audiences looking for mindless entertainment on a Saturday night. Although "mindless" seems almost complimentary when a movie is as idiotic as this one is. There's so little to its plot that the whole film seems to evaporate before the end of the climactic chase scene.
It's been a couple of years since Nick, Kurt and Dale (Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day) tried to solve their problems by trying to kill their bosses. Instead, they've become inventors, and have just sold their Shower Buddy to a popular catalogue company owned by Bert (Christoph Waltz). They go all out to fill his order, putting their necks on the line, and Bert leaves them hanging there. Faced with the prospect of losing everything, they again consult their criminal pal Jones (Jamie Foxx), who helps them launch a "kidnaping". The idea is to grab Bert's son Rex (Chris Pine) and demand a ransom to cover their debts. But Rex takes over the operation, asking for a lot more cash and causing a lot more chaos. They also run into a couple of their old bosses: sex-crazed Julia (Jennifer Aniston) is still determined to sleep with Dale, while Harken (Kevin Spacey) can still freak them out from behind bars.
Director-writer Anders and cowriter Morris use almost the exact same formula this time, going for laughs in a carefully plotted caper in which everything that can go wrong does. Although instead of merely being inept, these people are all morons. Bateman's Nick is essentially the straight man in the movie, and even he fails to notice that they've borrowed and spent a vast sum of cash without even a simple contract with Bert. Meanwhile, Kurt and Dale are mind-achingly stupid, bungling every single moment so completely that it's hard to see them as functioning adults. Pine isn't much better, but at least we haven't seen this schtick from him before, and he's rather good at it.

Theroux is a longtime fan of the look.
Aniston meanwhile, opted for a tan dress with black lace detailing. Her hair was pulled back in a sleek, elegant updo. Basically, they matched perfectly in style and colour palette and it was adorable.

In the wake of their struggle to murder their bosses in the first film, 'Horrible Bosses 2' sees Nick (Jason Bateman), Dale (Charlie Day) and Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) attempting to set up their own company. When a rival investor (Christoph Waltz) tries to put them out of business, they put their previous criminal past to use and kidnap the investor's son, Rex (Chris Pine), in an attempt to blackmail him. Rex is impressed by their plan, and decides to help them scam his father, while steadily escalating the severity of their crime. As Rex continues to drag the three friends into a battle with his father, they find themselves crossing paths with Detective Hatcher (Jonathan Banks) and Dr. Julia Harris (Jennifer Anniston), one of the previous film's horrible bosses.

Although the plot itself is nothing special, this kidnapping comedy keeps the audience entertained by filling every scene with outrageous characters and twisty interaction. Based on an Elmore Leonard book, this free-wheeling movie is such a tangle of colourful people and riotous 1980s hairstyles that it can't help but be enjoyable. Especially once we realise that the story isn't the most important thing.
It's set in 1984 Detroit, where trophy wife Mickey (Jennifer Aniston) has finally had it with her chilly husband Frank (Tim Robbins). As she's thinking about taking their son (Charlie Tahan) and leaving, he's holed up in the Bahamas with his mistress Melanie (Isla Fisher) while preparing to serve Mickey with divorce papers. Just then, low-life criminals Louis and Ordell (John Hawkes and Yasiin Bey, aka Mos Def), kidnap Mickey and demand a $1 million ransom. Of course, Frank thinks his problem is solved until he realises that they also know about his dodgy business dealings. And things are further complicated by Louis and Ordell's Nazi-loving sidekick (Mark Boone Junior) and an amorous dork (Will Forte) who's in love with Mickey.
As the chaos escalates, writer-director Daniel Schechter keeps the focus tightly on the offbeat characters rather than the gyrations of the narrative. This makes it easy to identify with everyone on-screen, particularly Aniston and Hawkes, who have the most complex roles. They're the only people who have either emotional shadings or a story arc to travel, so watching them become increasingly aware of the opportunities around them is a lot of fun. Everyone else is here to get laughs, and it's amusing to see each of them reveal things about themselves that add to the mayhem, from Fisher's surprisingly savvy bombshell to Bey's womanising prowess. And of course each character approaches the various moral dilemmas from a distinct angle.
