A very silly film that filled an evening and left us both wondering why we bothered watching. I think maybe we are not the demographic it is aimed at. It is harmless enough but not very funny and juvenile sense of humour.

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

Very funny darkish comedy . If you have ever worked for a horrible boss yourself you will definitely sympathize with the main characters . Colin Farrell is brilliant and good to see Jennifer Anniston in a hot sexy role . Recommended especially if you want a laugh

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.

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.

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)

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.
