Three friends conspire to murder their awful bosses when they realize they are standing in the way of their happiness. (IMDb)

Seven great characters deliver brashly hilarious material following from an outrageous premise to create an overall solid comedy: Bateman, Sudekis (the straight guys), and Day (the maniacal third wheel) share great chemistry (their frantic dialogue is gold) that only gets better as the plot gets crazier; the three antagonists are each wildly funny and terrible in their own right; and Foxx’ underwhelming bad-ass is a total riot (“I need $5000.” “No.” “Alright, look, just pay for my drinks.”)

6.9/10

One thought on “Horrible Bosses (2011)

  1. This was a good comedy! Bateman is one of my favorite comedy actors. His very subtle not over the top comedy performances are exactly what I like! check out “The Switch” with him and Jennifer Aniston. 2010 film that’s pretty good.
