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.
Log in to post a review.
Nick (Jason Bateman), Kurt (Jason Sudeikis), and Dale (Charlie Day) plan to give their horrible bosses a permanent pink-slip in this raunchy workplace comedy.
Nick has been working under Dave Harken (Kevin Spacey) at Comnidyne for years to earn his upcoming promotion. As it all turns out, the late nights and extra work doesnâ€™t pay off when Harkin passes Nick over for the promotion.
Kurt shares a fantastic relationship with his company founder and boss Jack Pellit (Donald Sutherland). Kurt quickly loses patience when Jackâ€™s cokehead son, Bobby (Colin Farrell), must assume control of the company in the wake of his fatherâ€™s death.
And recently engaged dental hygienist, Dale (Charlie Day), must fend off the constant advances of his sexually harassing boss Julia Harris (Jennifer Aniston). However, Dave doesnâ€™t receive much sympathy from his pals for his â€œhorribleâ€ boss.
Ultimately, their complaining leads them to considering murdering their bosses. After coming to agreement, the three seek help from an ex-con (Jamie Foxx). While their murders plans might go astray, the cast of Horrible Bosses are certainly able to produce laughter from the audience.
Bateman, Sudekis, and Day, all successful veteran sitcom writers, bring a great mix of comedy that pokes fun at a variety of topics. Meanwhile, the bosses do a great job of being â€œhorrible.â€ Spacey nails the corporate soul sucker, while Farrell does a great job with playing the â€œI had it allâ€ spoiled, angry, cokehead. Aniston looks great as normal, but is equally conniving and crazy as her counterparts.
For folks that truly enjoy movies (more importantly remember movies), you may be reminded of â€œThrow Momma from the Trainâ€ and the idea of â€œcriss-crossâ€ murdering from â€œStrangers on a Train.â€ Ultimately, Horrible Bosses is good for laughs and brief fulfillment of your boss strangling daydreams.
So the Jason that ruined Saturday Night Live, the Jason that ruined Arrested Development, and Charlie Day (he didnt ruin anything, yet...) decide to kill their bosses. Why? Because they give them 18 year old scotch, let them fire people, and say sexy shit to them. These bosses arent horrible at all. They are awesome! For more, check out my prehater youtube video.
