Storyline

Nick hates his boss, mostly because he's expected to work from before sunrise to after sunset and his boss, Mr. Harken, calls him out for being a minute late and blackmails him so he can't quit. Dale hates his boss, Dr. Julia Harris, because she makes unwelcome sexual advances when he's about to get married. But Dale is on that pesky list of child offenders so he can't quit. Kurt actually likes his job and his boss, well, up until his boss dies and the boss's coked-out, psychopathic son takes over. But who would be crazy enough to quit their jobs in such poor economic times? Instead Nick, Dale and Kurt drunkenly and hypothetically discuss how to kill their bosses, and before they know it, they've hired a murder consultant to help them pull off the three deeds.

Horrible Bosses

Short and Simple Review by WubsTheFadger

The acting throughout the entire film is good. Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey, Jason Sudeikis, and Collin Farrell all do a great job at portraying their respective characters. Jennifer Aniston's character is probably the best only because Jennifer is so freaking hot.

The story is fast paced and is very funny with well timed jokes and some over the top humor.

The runtime is a little bit lengthy and the ending is kinda cliché.

Pros: Great acting, fast pace, well timed humor, and Jennifer Aniston's hot body

Cons : Overlong runtime and a cliché ending

Overall Rating: 7.3

P.S. This movie left a good enough impression so I will probably watch the second one.
