\"Horrible Bossses\" is an American 105-minute comedy movie from 5 years ago and as the title already tells us it is about a trio of truly unbearable bosses. Well, actually it is really more about the poor souls working under them and the bosses are really only the supporting players even if almost all the actions of their employees revolve around them. And the bosses are also played by the more famous actors, namely Colin Farrell, Kevin Spacey and Jennifer Aniston as you have never seen her before. The employees are played by Jason Bateman (\"Arrested Development\"), who is nice to watch as always, Jason Sudeikis, who I do not really care about, and Charlie Day (\"Always Sunny\"), who is at least as funny here as on his regular show. Other minor supporting players include Julie Bowen (\"Modern Family\"), Oscar winner Jamie Foxx and Donald Sutherland.I thought this was quite a funny film and occasionally I was even tempted to give this one a 4/5 rating, but the moments of true comedic greatness weren't frequent enough as a whole. All in all, it was a very well-crafted film. The introduction to the 3 scenarios was as good as the elaboration on them until we finally find out that the three employees are friends. The murder plot was pretty absurd of course, but nonetheless an interesting idea to keep the film rolling. It never dragged for me. To me, it was especially fun to watch Kevin Spacey go full a**hole as a ruthless boss (even more than on \"House of Cards\" season 1) and human being, who becomes a cold-blooded murderer as well after he suspects his wife of cheating on him.\"Horrible Bosses\" was a commercial success as well, so that they made a sequel a couple years later. I heard it is not as good as the original, but I will probably check that one out as well at some point. As for this first film here, it was definitely a positive surprise and I would count it under the best comedy films from 2011. Some very funny moments and good acting from pretty much everybody involved. Occasionally it reminded me a bit of \"The Hangover\" in terms of the comedic contents and general style of the film. So if you enjoyed that Golden Globe winner, give \"Horrible Bosses\" a chance. You will not be disappointed.
Three friends have horrible bosses, and try to get rid of them. Nick (Jason Bateman) is in sales hoping for a promotion, but his boss Dave (Kevin Spacey) steals his job for himself. Dale (Charlie Day) has a boss Julia (Jennifer Aniston) who's sexually harassing him. Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) has a nice boss, but he dies and leaves the company to his douche son Bobby (Colin Farrell).It's a bit too serious at times. The stupidity gets a little funny. There are some hilarious moments. Charlie Day's manic idiocy can be very annoying and very funny. Sometimes it's both at the same time. In the end, the guys are just likable enough. The humor is just silly enough. It's a good comedy that breaks out every once in a while.
\"Ever wish your boss was dead\".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. 59ce067264
