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 comedies, the script and storyline are mediocre. It's still entertaining. Just average. Not horrible. Not brilliant. It's a harm...
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 Fa... read more

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

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 antagonist-trio of Spacey, Aniston & Farrell provide both starpower and charm to this outrageous comedy. 4/5

Not sure why I watched this one, but I did laugh here and there.
Jennifer Aniston is actually funny as a sex-crazed boss who is quite demanding of a particular employee; and I think you can imagine in what way. So I guess I have to like her now.
And the rest of the well assembled...

Funny movie about three best buddies who hate their bosses. Like strangers on a train, they plot to kill each other's bosses. It's a bit off the wall like the Hangover. Good plot and cast. Funniest scenes are with Kevin Spacey. Strong language. Jennifer looks great but either has...

I don't get what all the hype was about. Amusing, but not particularly inspired.

The main focuses are the bosses played by Kevin Spacey and Jennifer Aniston. While Spacey portays a twisted yet powerful man, Aniston is a seductive and crazy dentist. Although people complain about it having so many cliches, to be honest, its difficult to make a film with no cli...

Irritating to the point of almost unwatchable. There is nothing remotely funny in following these unbearable retards amid stupid gags and homophobic/racist/sexist remarks all over. Besides, Charlie Day is a horrible actor who thinks yelling in a high pitch makes him funny - it do...
