Product Description

For Nick, Kurt and Dale, the only thing that would make the daily grind more tolerable would be to grind their intolerable bosses into dust. Quitting is not an option, so, with the benefit of a few-too-many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con, the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers...permanently.

There's only one problem: even the best laid plans are only as foolproof as the brains behind them.

Jason Bateman (Couples Retreat), Charlie Day (Going the Distance) and Jason Sudeikis (Hall Pass) star as the three hapless workers, with Jennifer Aniston (He's Just Not That Into You), Colin Farrell (Crazy Heart) and two-time Oscar® winner Kevin Spacey (American Beauty, The Usual Suspects), as their unbearable bosses. Oscar® winner Jamie Foxx (Ray) stars as the plotters' unlikely mentor, whose street cred is priced on a sliding scale. The main cast also includes veteran actor Donald Sutherland and Julie Bowen (TV's Modern Family).

Format: DVD
Three friends have horrible bosses. For one reason or another they are stuck at their jobs. Nick works for Kevin Spacey who is a ridiculous driver and badgers Nick when he is 2 minutes late. Kurt works a chemical company. His new boss is a coke head who sees the business as an ATM machine and wants to run it into the ground. When he says he wants to "trim the fat" that means he wants to fire fat people. Dale, who is engaged, is a dental assistant to Jennifer Aniston, who wants to have sex with him. Even his close friends have trouble believing that is a problem.

Kurt claims killing his boss, who wants to dump waste on the proverbial poor Bolivians would save lives and that they have a moral duty to kill their boss. Jennifer Aniston develops a comical potty mouth in this film, one that makes Madonna sound like Mother Teresa.

After some very brief soul searching our trio decides life would be better without their bosses. However getting to that point is not easy. The movie takes some unexpected twists. The role of Dale (Charlie Day) was clearly written with Zach Galifianakis in mind. In spite of that, this was still an excellent movie. Good laughs, and an enjoyment to see Aniston as "R" rated.

F-bomb, crude sex talk (mostly by Aniston)

Format: Blu-ray
The premise of this movie was quite good, as most of us have had days at work when we have been taken to the "attitude clinic" or a run in with the manager and feel like murdering them! The movie had the potential to be a much darker version of "Office Space" but unfortunately failed to deliver.

Part of the problem is the characterisation. Of the bosses, only Kevin Spacey's "bullyboy" manager really hit true. Jennifer Aniston's cougar act as a female dentist preying on male staff and customers alike was just too OTT, as was Colin Farrell's Les Grossman alike. The most irritating part was however Charlie Day's hyper and chatty dental assistant, he just ruined the film for me. It became apparent fairly early on that the bulk of the movie was going to be all talk, with very little action or progression towards actually bumping off the antagonists.

As other reviewers have mentioned, the movie is quite crude in places. I'm no prude but it seemed to me whenever the plot was sagging a bit, they gave Jennifer Anniston a few dirty lines or F-bombs to titillate male viewers used to seeing her in more demure roles.

On reflection it was probably worth a rental but not a permanent place in the collection.

The modern gross out comedy has lost its identity. It appears that hiring Jason Bateman alone is enough for you to get the green light. This must have been the case with `Horrible Bosses', as it wasn't the script. Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis play three friends all being harassed by their bosses. They plot in a half-hearted way to kill each other's bosses `Strangers on a Train' style. This is the basic outline of the plot and it does not deviate much.

`Horrible Bosses' is less a film about narrative and more about comedic performances. Out of the 6 lead parts only Bateman is a straight man, the rest of the cast get something a little barmy to do. Day and Sudeikis have great chemistry together, as `Going the Distance' already showed, add in Bateman and you have a trio of comedians who can patter all day. These three are the backbone of the movie, but it is Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston and Colin Farrell who steal the limelight with their turns as horrible bosses. As much as I enjoyed their evil side, it is only Farrell who actually shows a side of his acting not seen before.

The issues with `Horrible Bosses' are not down to the casting, but the paper thin plotting. None of the characters are really developed enough to you to sympathise with their plans to murder. When they do go about their nasty deeds the film seems to lose direction and flies off at random. The close knit comedic trio are split and the highlight of the film dissipates. `Horrible Bosses' is by no means the worst adult comedy of recent years, but it is far from being the best (see something like '21 Jump Street' for a better example). It all feels like a bunch of comedic performers, directors and writers getting a pay cheque.

As you probably guessed the plot is about three friends with employers who are making their lives hell and as a consequence, set about formulating a plan to kill them.

This film is one to watch when you want to turn off your brain and not think. As a result, you will probably enjoy the film more by not over analysing it. It has a decent cast which helps and it was surprisingly funny in parts and was better then I was expecting after hearing differing opinions on the film.

I can't shake the feeling that this film could have been properly hilarious and am still slightly irritated that it was as mediocre as it turned out to be.

The story goes, three mates are suffering at work due to the horrendous bosses that they work under. Having had enough, they decide to take matters into their own hands and have them 'bumped off' with hilarious results...apparently.

As mentioned before, this film could have been great if only the writers had put a bit more thought into it. The story feels lazy and by the numbers. Whilst some characters are pretty entertaining (ie Spacey's psycho and Farrel's sleazebag), others felt like filler. Aniston was more cringe worthy than funny, relying on simple smut rather than actual humour. It's like the writer has spent his life fantasising about her and thought it was a great opportunity to vent his deviancy all in the name of comedy.

As for the three main characters played by Bateman, Sudeikis and Day, they have moments of brilliance but all too often lapse into the standard gross out/shock tactics that seem to be the American comedy standard at the moment. I mean as soon as one of them started wiping his a*se with his bosses toothbrush I thought the script was grasping at straws a bit.

Also, why have they cast an oscar winning actor like Foxx in a part where he not only isn't funny, but isn't even interesting?

I know the film isn't meant to be high brow or anything and I wasn't expecting it to be, but why can't comedy writers just think a bit more about what might get a belly laugh rather than a smirk? As I said, lazy and by the numbers.
