The Top 10 Hottest Bossy Bitches of Film

Everyone loves a bitch. Some are self-centered, some bathe in their own nastiness, some have underlying reasons for being so defensive and horrible, ultimately coming around to redemption. But the best bitches in movies are the ones who, despite all of their hostile outbursts and name-calling, are still loved for being that dominate, bossy bitch that we all wish we could get away with being. In honor of this week's new release, THE BOSS, where a money-hungry business woman down on her luck doesn't change her stripes so much as hunts in a different locale, here are some of the best bossy bitches who came before her.

#10 - Rayna Boyanov (SPY)

I was hesitant to watch SPY because frankly, I'd gotten burned by thinking that Melissa McCarthy was going to be funny all the time after BRIDESMAIDS and then there was IDENTITY THIEF, TAMMY and THE HEAT to disprove that. So I only ended up watched SPY after it was released on DVD and I was pressured into it by people who are supposed to be my non-bitchy, non-bossy friends. And I ended up loving the film, if not for McCarthy (although she stepped up her game after that string of losers) but for the straight-man funny that Jason Statham can deliver and the duplicitous, bossy, spoiled bitchy princess act that Rose Byrne so masterfully can deliver.

#9 - Meredith Johnson (DISCLOSURE)

Demi Moore seemed to be a specialist when it came to playing the tough bitch in movies, although it was never more apparent than when the huge sexual harassment boon of the 1990's produced the often times silly, mostly ludicrous DISCLOSURE. Michael Douglas tended to be around 20 years older than most of his female co-stars during that era (granted, he also married someone 25 years younger than himself as well) and we were still supposed to buy that Moore was character's former girlfriend and also somehow promoted above him during a time when women were still struggling for positions of power in any field, let alone the computer/electronics/digital resources one. Men wanted to believe that a woman could sexually harass them and they wanted that woman to be husky voiced Demi with her power suits and bitchy allure.

#8 - Marianne (EASY A)

Let's put aside all of the personal drama we know about Amanda Bynes today. The simple fact of the matter is that her crazy is what made her so amazing when it came to putting on a face and giving an over-the-top delivery. Marianne could have been just a condescending asshat that talked smack about a girl she went to school with and heard rumours about. Instead, she becomes that thrashing beacon who convinces even the girl in question's own best friend to turn on her. And true to mean girl form, she (briefly) is willing to abruptly change face and pretend to be buddies with the very person who was so gleefully taunting. Bynes might be crazy but she's also crazy good as an actress.

#7 - Courtney (JAWBREAKER)

This is one of those lesser-known high school hotties turn deadly movies that got swallowed up by the 1990's. Trying to be a HEATHERS but coming off far more bitter than dark or wry, it's no surprise that the movie is mainly only remembered by the most diehard of bitchy girl fans. Of course, this is also the time that Rose McGowan was dating Marilyn Manson, who ridiculed Christina Ricci for being "fat," taunting her far worse than Courtney did to any of her minions in this movie, all because Ricci dared to say she wasn't a fan of his music. And since McGowan scored him a minor role in this movie, perhaps it's he who should be on the list instead.

#6 - Darla (DAZED AND CONFUSED)

Parker Posey didn't even get a main character designation when DAZED AND CONFUSED was originally released, considered only to be a colorful supporting actor in the film. Problem was, some of the leads were direly boring and watching Darla scream at young girls while flinging condiments on them was funny and contained that gene of reminiscence that comes from recalling our own time in high school. Watching the material that never made it into the movie - here is the "interview" that Darla did - shows just what a master Parker Posey is. And why women today choose to dress up like Darla for costume parties.

#5 - Kathryn Merteuil (CRUEL INTENTIONS)

If I'm being frank, I really don't like the movie CRUEL INTENTIONS. I tend to veer away from most "modern" retellings of antiquated material, preferring to see Hollywood try to pull it off the period piece way. I believe the only reason why people continue to say they love this movie is simply because we were all jonesing to see goody-goody vampire slayer, Sarah Michelle "Buffy" Gellar be a bad girl. And holy shit is she one nasty, power-tripping, head-gaming bitch in this.

#4 - Chris Hargensen (CARRIE)

The Chloe Grace Moretz monstrosity of a remake tried so hard to be relevant in a time when even Amish girls have a hidden cell phone in the pleats of their skirts, but no one was buying it. And while Judy Greer managed to be the only great upgrade to one of characters from the original 1976 version, no one ever has been able to touch the sexy, sultry, super-intense bitchiness that Nancy Allen achieved as bully Chris Hargensen. She manipulated her friends into carrying out a nasty scheme, talked down to the dudes who could have broken her neck and in general was far nastier than Carrie's own mother could have ever been. And I really love her for it.

#3 - O-Ren Ishii (KILL BILL)

I have read the stories about Bill Murray being a bit of a mean girl himself when it comes to Lucy Liu, whom he criticized as being a bad actress during the time that he was working with her on CHARLIE'S ANGELS. For the most part, I can see where he's coming from. Liu's delivery in pretty much every project she does is the equivalent of a person who's just taken a high dose of antihistamine and is trying to stay awake and sound cognizant. But when she screams and slays in that board room while barely mussing a hair, Lucy breathes the full bitchy, bossy life into O-Ren.

#2 - Katherine Parker (WORKING GIRL)

Walk softly and carry a huge f*cking stick. At least, that's what I learned from watching Sigourney Weaver speak in that feathered voice, spouting niceties while the venom was still dripping from her lips. She steals ideas, bullies grown men and otherwise has people scared shitless of her all while maintaining her dated 1980's chic.

#1 - Regina George (MEAN GIRLS)

I think what I love most about Regina George is that even after learning her lesson through means of getting hit by a bus is that she simply channels that rage into something that is considered more productive... but she's still a bossy bitch, never really having learned anything at all. It's also Rachel McAdams well-known nice-girl reputation off screen that allows us to feel a little bit better about loving a Mean Girl.
