Horrible Bosses (2011)

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.… More

Consensus: It's nasty, uneven, and far from original, but thanks to a smartly assembled cast that makes the most of a solid premise, Horrible Bosses works.

Leonard Maltin

It's tempting to label Horrible Bosses a post-Hangover comedy. For all I know it may have been in the works before that box-office smash saw the light of day, but it emits the same vibe, even if it doesn't go to the same extremes...

Sam Adams
Los Angeles Times

A lot of low-stakes humor, occasionally brought off by a mostly ingratiating cast.

David Keyes

Like rats in a collapsed maze, these are characters struggling hard to find a path to comedic freedom, and are constantly getting lost in the ruins of an absurd plot.

Time Out

Gordon knows what works and what doesn't, pushing the leads' chummy chemistry to the fore while allowing the schematic and, frankly, highly unlikely murder plot to sink into the background.

James Berardinelli

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

Sean Burns
Philadelphia Weekly

A ramshackle assembly of recycled characters and conflicting tones, duct-taped together at odd angles.

Richard Brody
New Yorker

The movie's main thrust is lowball wish fulfillment, which comes too cheaply.

Christian Science Monitor

The coarseness wouldn't be so bad if at least the steady stream of obscenities were funny. But there is, after all, an art to talking dirty.

This vulgar comedy is mediocre at best with some fun performances but few jokes that actually work.

It's a relatively watchable comedy. Aniston and Day are reliably funny, and there are some laugh-out-loud moments. Nonetheless, as expected with modern… More

Make of the story what you will, "Horrible Bosses" is the type of movie that you will laugh with matter what. It has amazing laughs, loveable… More

Solid acting performances from the cast and a brisk fun pace save the movie from its rather thin plot.

Well what have we here...a film with an original plot AND Jennifer Aniston actually growing up and acting like a proper woman for once. Lets really add to this… More

The amount of crude humor and vulgarity goes well to make this a pretty well-developed film. The team of Bateman, Day & Sudekis along with the… More
