Today marks the 5 year anniversary of awesomeness in my life. This list represents every movie my old lady (she…
Ever wish your boss was dead?
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.
Going into this, I expected it to be somewhat amusing but really stupid and predictable. I was really surprised by how hilarious and clever this is. The cast is fantastic. Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and especially Charlie Day all are given a chance to shine as are the bosses, especially Kevin Spacey who completely owns his role. He's always been the king of playing asshole bosses and this is no exception. This is the hottest and the funniest Jennifer Aniston has ever been. Colin Farrel gives the best performance he had in years at this point. Funniest he's been since In Bruges. This film is really well written. As soon as I think I know how the story is gonna…
Colin Farrell according to my wife is, and I quote,"sex on a stick".
That fact alone should be enough to earn my distaste,but funnily enough it just makes his transformation into comb-over,coke-head asshole all the more appealing. This is one of Farrell's best performances. His tortured soul from "In Bruges" remains his most memorable and iconic role but this has him mocking himself and having a ball.
Kevin Spacey is a two time Oscar winner that can turn his hand to anything. As David Harken he becomes the epitome of a corporate dickhead. As slimy a character as Spacey has ever played he really was the most "horrible" of the bosses. And then we get to possibly the best boss…
I'm really sad to see the sequel is in the hands of the That's My Boy director...
Original and highly entertaining, "Horrible Bosses" has a great premise, awesome chemistry, great pacing, and a lot of originality. Charlie Day is hilarious and quick-witted, Jason Bateman is solid, and Jason Sudeikis is the scene stealer. Can't wait for #2.
Today was laziness day and since I almost never left the bed or the couch I rewatched this one also passing on tv. Still very funny!
If there's one thing every working person in world has in common, it's that at one point in their life, they had a boss they hated. Horrible Bosses is a 2011 comedy directed by Seth Gordon, that tells us the story of three friends who have that same problem.
Nick, Dale, and Kurt are three friends who each have a despicable boss who's making their lives a living hell. Nick's boss, David Harken, is just a jerk who seems to enjoy making his employees, especially Nick, suffer. Dale is working as an assistant to a perverted, sexually harassing dentist called Julia. While Kurt works for Bobby Pellitt, who is just an incompetent moron. One night while they're hanging out in…
So why didn't they just fucking quit?
A solid cast and absurd plot drags an iffy script into something funny and enjoyable. One of the few movies to pull off the "none of the characters are identifiable" thing--we are here to laugh at them, not with them.
I really enjoyed this! Yes it's a bit silly, but overall a good time! The best performances in this was definitely from the bosses: Kevin Spacey was great at his roll, and you can see he had fun in it, the same can be said for Collin Farrell, the ultimate douche!!! And as for Jennifer Aniston.... Yowzaaaaa!! My favourite part of this whole Damn movie!!!! 3/5
有種在看醉後大丈夫的感覺~XD (是不是男生死黨們聚在一起的情形都差不多?) 總之就是一部輕鬆、不花腦筋、可以讓你開懷大笑絕無冷場、看完心情一整個大好的喜劇片
Berlin ---> New York: Pointless except for scenes with the actual bosses that are being horrible.
Modern American comedy cinema melts your brain.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I thought it was a great comedy because I love Charlie Day and he was brilliant
The only purpose for the women in this film were as sex objects. It was awful.
The rest of the plot of the film was terrible too. It was so bad and not in a fun way.
I didn't watch the whole thing because it was too offensively bad.
Having not seen this since its release in theaters, most of the film felt like it was new to me, outside of the few things people still quote from this ("Show her the fifty states").
Extremely well-acted and well-written, Horrible Bosses is a great comedy that could have been absolutely horrible (HAHAHA) with a different cast.
Hopefully the sequel will be up to par with this very underrated and oft-forgotten gem.
