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).

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 number of minutes i stuck this out for. Had it not been free to stream on Prime, i guess i would have felt duty bound to continue, but it was and i don't so i didn't.
In that time there were maybe two funny lines but the rest of it was making me cringe too hard.
I think by this point we have met all the characters and i couldn't give a monkey's about any of them.
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.
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)
`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.Read more ›

The idea was good and the film could have been funny for any audience, but it really was one for young lads on a Friday night with some beers.Published 3 months ago by Pandorapus
