Horrible Bosses (2011)

Nick, Kurt and Dale are three friends with one thing in common; they all completely hate their bosses and are making their lives a living hell. But quitting is not an option for the guys, so they contemplate, hypothetically what if they were to get rid of them? What if they were to hire a hit-man to kill them? At first hesitant but then thinking about how happier their lives would be without them around, they meet an ex-con who helps them, suggesting to the trio to do the others crimes and make it look like an accident. However being amateurs in planning a caper, it is a lot more complicated then the men soon realize. Totally funny dark comedy; a crazy, non-stop laugh riot with a lot of raunchy humor. Starring Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, Colin Farrell, Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey, Donald Sutherland, Jamie Foxx 7/10 Rated R

Good review Mel. This film was funny, but it just wasn't as hilarious as I was expecting it to be. Something here felt like they were trying a little too hard to get us to laugh, so I just chuckled a couple of times here and there. Nothing special, but still good.

I found the little guy really annoying, He was over the top trying to be funny and his voice was so irritating. Love, love, loved Colin Farrell and Kevin Spacey. I'm not a Jennifer Aniston fan and can't figure out why she's so popular, but she was marvelous!

Thanks Dan O for your critique! It's not the best movie ever, but still had funny moments. ;)

Jacq you're not alone on your feelings about Jennifer Aniston, she is overrated and not that great of an actress. But the movie itself was funny and yes maybe they shouldn't try so hard. :)
