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)

This is certainly not 9 to 5 in which the horrible boss was skewered by his three employees. It lacked the believability and acting ability of the earlier film. The three horrible bosses were very well played but I found the three leads weak, and the high-pitched one a total pain. Indeed, the quality of the big name supporting cast really shows up the leads. I can see the attempt to be like Hangover (one serious, one Lothario, and one nutter) but the plan failed in the execution. What saves matters is that this becomes a comedy of excruciation. Our heroes cannot do anything without it rebounding in the most horrible fashion possible.

There is a lot to like about this film. What drew me to it individually was the 3 leads. I'm a great fan of Bateman and his excellent comic timing, despite his Hollywood stigma. And then there's the always excellent Arrested Development. Then there's Day, who I could watch all day. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is something I stumbled on bored one afternoon on Netflix. I now recommend it to everyone. Finally, Sudekis seems to me like someone who flirts with that Hollywood lifestyle, but always has these random cameo's and roles in various TV shows and films that demonstrate how good a comic actor he is.

Together those 3 to not disappoint. They all play to their strengths, and they work exceptionally well. Comic timing is excellent, the story is wacky (Foxx by the way, is terrific), and the bosses add to it all. Farrell and Spacey play to their strengths, albeit an even wackier version of some of their typical characters, but Aniston really impressed me. I'm not really a fan of her films, but she played this role so well.

With that strong a cast, on that good form, it's hard not to generate a few laughs. It's barely relatable, but it doesn't try to be, hence I would definitely recommend it! It won't be for everyone, but it was for me!

One of those films you watch uncomfortably for most of the time.
Has some funny moments, but not a laugh out loud film.

Just was really, really lame. I tried to laugh and I gave one star because I remember laughing at least once. I stopped this movie before it got to the end. I think it might have been trying to do a Pineapple Express (which I actually found hilarious) but just really lamed out.

Yet more misogynistic nasty drivel bandaged up in "comedy". The two male bosses are exaggerated versions of types we may probably recognise in one way or another but Jennifer Anniston's character is appalling. This is a classic version of the game "Let's pretend to make the woman powerful and behave like a man would in that situation so that women can't complain while what we are really doing is continuing to portray women as unprofessional and sex starved". Of course, there is the usual response of the other men wishing they were being sexually harassed...yawn. Do film makers really think we are that stupid? As another reviewer said, the idea had huge potential and in the right hands this could have been a superb film.

Started OK and then descended into filler jokes for a limp plot. Good cast, but I was bored by the time we reached the middle of the movie. I then realised that the none of the characters were believable or likable. Kevin Spacy was enjoyable to watch, but by the end of the movie, he morphed into the rest of the cast, which weren't very interesting. The plot was just plain stupid. Not funny stupid. Just plain stupid. The plot felt tired, not even the unfunny alibiing could not save it. I don't think anyone wanted to save it. They are likely to want to forget it. I do.

Probably funny for the actors making the movie, for the rest of us? Painful.

While I love Jennifer Aniston, and bought this movie on the strength of that love, I wish she'd read scripts and choose decent films before agreeing to do them. This was well-nigh unwatchable nonsense.
