Comedies nowadays are rarely funny. There are the few notable exceptions, and Horrible Bosses
joins The Hangover
as the funniest movies I've seen in the past couple years. In fact, Horrible Bosses
might even be the funniest of the bunch!
It's a simple plot: Nick, Kurt and Dale are friends who commiserate every evening as they complain about each of them working for terrible bosses. Nick (Bateman) works for power-hungry corporate stooge Dave (Spacey) who has him overworked and undervalued. Kurt (Sudeikis) has to endure the drug-fueled immoral Bobby (Farrell), who's driving the company to ruin. And dental assistant Dale (Day) has his hands full, literally, with the ever-increasing sexual advances of Dr. Julia Harris (Aniston), even though she knows he's engaged.
The guys soon reach their limit and can't take it anymore, so what do they do? Well, if you've seen the trailer you'll know what plan is set in motion. It involves the assistance of the shady mr. Jones (Foxx). And what transpires next is one of the most hilarious madcap adventures I've ever seen. What also elevates this dark comedy above the rest is the witty script and zinger-filled dialogue.
The cast is pitch-perfect, with Bateman, Day and Spacey as the standouts! Farrell and Aniston are terrific as well, and they're both almost unrecognizable in their roles: Farrell due to his physical apperance and Aniston due to her attitude and foul mouth. The script is constantly throwing up surprises and you can be sure you've never seen anything like this before! The "16" age restriction is warranted though, due to extremely foul language, so bear that in mind. Regardless, if you don't mind that, then prepare for one of the funniest movies of the year! (5 out of 5, by Carlisle Johnson)
For Nick, Kurt and Dale, the only thing that would make the daily grind more tolerable would be to grind their intolerable bosses 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, the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers...permanently.
There's only one problem: even the best laid plans are only as foolproof as the brains behind them.
