Horrible Bosses

7/10
Crime . Comedy
 

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.

Directors: Seth Gordon
Country: USA
Release: 2011-07-08
More Info:
  • Steve Persall

    The funniest comedy of degeneracy since "Bad Santa," and a career-changer for Aniston and Farrell if they'll only keep following their perverted muses. Horrible Bosses spins hostile work environments into a movie surpassing "9 to 5" and "Office Space" as the touchstone flick for disenchanted drones.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    A bouncy, well-built, delightfully nasty tale of resentment, desperation, and amoral revenge that does for employer-employee relations what Danny DeVito and Bette Midler did for the bonds of matrimony in the great 1986 Zucker brothers comedy "Ruthless People."

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Funny and dirty in about that order.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Markowitz, Daley and Goldstein sounds like a New York firm that delivers financial advice, but they're asking you to invest only $9 of your cash and 100 minutes of your time. They have written the funniest movie I've seen this year in Horrible Bosses.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    For something like Horrible Bosses to sparkle, the actors have to shine... and shine they do.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Gets considerable gas from the fact that Bateman, Sudeikis and Day so convincingly play three idiotic pals. The real fun, though, is in the fantastic supporting cast.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    What's right about Horrible Bosses is less easy to identify, but it comes down to something like esprit de corps. The three principal actors click. The looseness of the structure actually proves a benefit, allowing Bateman, Sudeikis and Day, all trained on television comedy, to bounce off each other, talk over each other and apparently pull lines out of the air.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Scott Bowles

    It's over-the-top stuff, to be sure. But Bosses never crosses that line into the macabre.

    USA Today Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    The movie is strongest when it stays with Bateman and Spacey, who play greatest-hits remixes of their best-loved performances.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    In the film's funniest scene, a coked-up Day rocks out to The Ting Tings' "That's Not My Name" in a car in a state of ecstatic frenzy.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Cleverly structured, Horrible Bosses works in spite of its cruder, scrotum-centric instincts.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The first funny film to give those "Bridesmaids" a run for their money.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    It's one of those revolting, raunch-fueled movies churned out in their sleep by the Farrelly brothers and Judd Apatow that I usually hate, but with real cleverness, off-center wit and edgy imagination. Imagine an X-rated Three Stooges farce, and you get the picture.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    The laughter is mean but also oddly pure: it expels shame and leaves you feeling dizzy, a little embarrassed and also exhilarated, kind of like the cocaine that two of the main characters consume by accident.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Mary Pols

    Almost every actor in it outplays the material they're working with, particularly Jason Bateman. Horrible Bosses would be worth seeing if only for the pleasure of watching him delicately bat indelicate comedy around.

    Time Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Aside from having murder on their minds, these three are a lot more well-behaved than the "Hangover" guys.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    As inconsequential and virtually indistinguishable sub-Judd Apatow white-boy comedies fueled by prison-rape gags and pants-pissing anxiety around black people go, Horrible Bosses is pretty solid entertainment.

    Salon.com Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Let's not pretend otherwise: The comedy here is profane, juvenile, silly. Fine by me, because some of it also is hilarious.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Scorchingly raunchy - and yes, pretty funny.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Here's a hit-and-miss farce that leaves you wishing it was funnier than it is. Why? Because it wussies out on a sharp premise.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Nick Schager

    As its titular tyrants, Spacey, Aniston, and Farrell all revel in their over-the-top noxiousness, though the latter is mysteriously given short shrift even though his performance is far and way the most novel and gonzo.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    All those who have to drag themselves to work every morning will surely find some comfort in Seth Gordon's cheerfully outrageous revenge comedy, Horrible Bosses.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Idiocy can be funny, but let's not forget that for all of this movie's aspirations to be out-there, it relies on the staple of the sitcom mentality.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    Short, sour and scabrous, Bosses is that paradoxical thing: a situation comedy where neither situation nor comedy is particularly effective where nonetheless Jason Bateman is sidesplitting, as is Colin Farrell in a supporting role.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Horrible Bosses has a handful of hilarious moments, but it's not exactly funny and not exactly serious, either.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Horrible Bosses doesn't quite qualify as a black comedy. Without the conviction to follow through on its own macabre premise, this underachieving little movie washes out to a muddy grayish-brown.

    Slate Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Spacey evokes memories of other movies in which he's played a shark, and it's inherently fascinating to hear Aniston talking dirty and to see Farrell with a combover, but nothing in the film is genuinely provocative.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    The story is so packed with over-the-top characters (including a hit man and hustler played by Jamie Foxx) that no one gets a chance to breathe.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Sara Maria Vizcarrondo

    The laughs are proportionate to the stakes, which are middle-of-the-road.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Ian Buckwalter

    When faced with the choice of which gag to go for, Horrible Bosses generally selects the raunchiest laugh possible, all other considerations be damned.

    NPR Full Review
  • Helen O'Hara

    These bosses cannot justify either murder or lasting comic memories, fatally compromising a farce that could have been great but ends up merely mediocre.

    Empire Full Review
  • David Fear

    All the put-upon boorishness of an office drone (Bateman), a chemical-plant manager (Sudeikis) and their sexually harassed buddy (Day) might be forgivable, were Horrible Bosses actually funny instead of sporadically amusing and desperately vulgar.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Boasting a terrific cast, the movie is unable to parlay its abundance of comic talent into an abundance of original comedy.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    The manner in which the central scheme plays out is predictably moronic, vulgar and juvenile, though the parties involved just about make up for it.

    Variety Full Review
  • Karina Longworth

    This is middling TV material, almost comforting in its bland predictability - the kind of stuff you want on the seat-back screen when there's turbulence on a plane - but rarely actually laugh-out-loud funny, and never truly dark or daring.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    I say kill off everybody else and bring back Farrell for the sequel.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    Slow-witted, clumsy and almost pathologically reliant on crude name-calling for laughs - Horrible Bosses represents the lowest end of the comedy spectrum.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    The coarseness wouldn't be so bad if at least the steady stream of obscenities were funny.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Horrible Bosses has preposterousness to burn, but no finesse and no interest in having any.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    The lameness of the gags and dialogue and the film's frequent deep dives for the bottom at the expense of real comedy speak to desperation in Hollywood to figure out the audience for contemporary naughty comedy.
