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).

For the most part you can sympathize with each on how they hate their bosses so much, although, who wouldn't want Jennifer Aniston talking smutty & seducing them ? So, they decide they have had enough & jokingly over drinks, suggest that they kill their bosses, but things get a bit carried away, and they actually start seriously considering it. But the bumbling trio have difficulty finding someone to do their dirty work, as they have bizarre meetings with what they believe to be underworld persons i.e hitmen. As you'd expect, comedy & mayhem ensue.
Overall i thought it was funny & you could pick & mix your own favorite character & boss to feel more or less kindred.Read more ›
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.
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.
I just find it hard to believe a dentist ( female ) would be that desperate to be hitting on her employee in that way - totally unrealistic.
Some big names in this but it just didn't do it for me I am afriad
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.
