For Nick (Jason Bateman), Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) and Dale (Charlie Day), the only thing that would make the daily grind more tolerable would be to grind their intolerable bosses (Kevin Spacey, Colin Farrell, Jennifer Aniston) 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 (Jamie Foxx), the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers... permanently.

Very solid film. The comedy wasn't gross out and stupid, it was somewhat articulate. I didn't feel like I was a little kid getting read a story like I have with the past few comedies I have seen. Jason Sudekis, Charlie Day and Jason Bateman are very funny together. You have the Player (Sudekis), the Mature One (Bateman) and the Crazy (Day) much like the Hangover. Very watchable and very funny.
Three guys with horrible bosses attempt to kill them.
This is a pretty good movie, with things like “characters” and “humor,” things that most other comedies lack. It is genuinely funny and entertaining, though a little annoying sometimes.
This is really pandering to the occupy Wall Street crowd (like In Time and Tower Heist.) It has a theme of stick it to the fat cats, so if you’re like me, barely making the money you need each week, you sympathies with these characters before you even meet their hilariously horrible bosses.
I have always been a sucker for dark comedy (Dr. Strangelove and Life of Brian are amongst my favorite films,) and the dark premise taken with levity always does it for me. It helps though that the characters are unique and the comedy comical.
It really is funny, you’ll laugh at humor involving a man named Motherf*cker Jones, the comically hammy bosses (played by Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston and Collin Ferrell who all do a fantastic job) and the silly situation are heroes get into whilst trying to assassinate their bosses.
In the end this isn’t a great movie or anything, behind the funny situations and characters there isn’t much here. It has no depth to it, but if there is such a thing as a good SNL style comedy, then this is it. If your looking for a laugh, look no further.
