Over the past few weeks, Jennifer Aniston has (unwittingly, I think) hogged the “Horrible Bosses” publicity spotlight. Almost all of the coverage of the movie has focused on her—how she may or may not have a topless scene in the movie, how she’s breaking out of America’s Sweetheart mode to play a sex-crazed dentist, how she blew a kiss to Justin Theroux while getting her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

I mean, a male dentist who sexually harasses his female hygenist is probably the more likely scenario in the real world—but I like something about the role reversal — and the fact that Jennifer went for this rather than more boring romantic comedy fare.
