Movie Review: Horrible Bosses (2011)

There's something about middle-class men finding themselves in extraordinary situations that seems to work for comedies like The Hangover (and its sequel) and now Horrible Bosses.

Stuck with sociopaths as bosses, friends Nick (Jason Bateman), Dale (Charlie Day), and Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) decide that their lives and respective careers will better if their superiors were eliminated. They go about in finding ways to get rid of their bosses, but to humorous results, they find themselves in a bigger and crazier situation.

The film's plot is well-written and cast is great (espcially the villains Kevin Spacey and Jennifer Aniston)-- I feel the movie made the best out of its limited concept. There's also a dull patch in the middle where the guys go bungling their "mission," but the movie eventually pulls through.

Horrible Bosses is a good comedy for folks who are still looking for films like The Hangover. Word of caution-- there's a lot of profanity, raunchiness, and R-rated content.


Rating: 3.5/5
