Robert deNiro, Anne Hathaway, Rene Russo.
Breezy intermezzo if you will. This film really has it’s lovely moments, don’t get me wrong, but the idea is mostly based on Anne Hathaway being some sort of horrible boss to work for, while the first introduction you have of her is that of a very, very customer friendly one indeed. She isn’t unpleasant to any of her co-workers, despite the fact that one of them starts sobbing about her not knowing she has a Penn-degree (it was in the script, so of course she will sob if the script says so).
There are sensitive moments where Anne Hathaway takes Ben (Robert de Niro) aside to ask him for actual advice, but she barely ever says nasty things. To anyone. She is simply incapable of doing so.
It is a bit like the makers wanted her to be the next icequeen and so very badly missed their goal.
Oh well, it’s a nice watch anyway.
