      What to Know

      Critics 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.

      Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express More often than not Horrible Bosses comes off as one of those comedies which feels more template than anything else. Rated: 1.5/5 Mar 26, 2019 Full Review Candice Frederick Reel Talk Online So, of course, a comedy of errors ensues since these everyday guys are the last you'd think could pull of such a dirty task. And man is it fun to watch it unfold. Rated: B+ Sep 8, 2017 Full Review Roger Moore Tribune News Service Funny enough to give America's embattled working folk an outlet for their frustration, and America's employer classes a bad case of nerves. Rated: 3/4 Jan 14, 2013 Full Review James Croot Stuff.co.nz Solidly entertaining, Horrible Bosses is the kind of flick Hollywood rarely makes well, or even puts out in cinemas, these days. Rated: 3.5/5 Aug 28, 2023 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Without the confidence or daring to truly embrace its macabre setup, this amusing-yet-dimwitted movie proves to be lighthearted and, even worse, rather pleasant from a moral standpoint. Rated: 2/4 Mar 11, 2023 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins The energy and hilarity steadily run out as the film barrels towards the expected conclusion. Rated: 7/10 Nov 30, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      Georgan G The comedy is really funny, both in one-liners and plot. There are so many amusing characters that it really can't miss. Great cast. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/09/24 Full Review Ciaran S To be honest i wasn't expecting a film titled "Horrible Bosses" to be a good film, but after watching this myself i actually had a good with it. if you want a comedy that's about bad bosses, good jokes, sex and drama then you'll definitely check this out. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/14/24 Full Review Azizkhuja T "Horrible Bosses" (2011) is a riotously funny and cleverly crafted comedy that hits all the right notes in exploring the outrageous extents to which three friends would go to deal with their intolerably toxic bosses. Directed by Seth Gordon, the film is a masterclass in dark comedy, blending a smart script with stellar performances from a cast that clearly enjoys delivering the laughs. Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis star as the beleaguered trio, each stuck in a job made miserable by their respective bosses. Their chemistry is undeniable, providing a solid foundation for the film's humor and heart. Their comedic timing and relatable portrayals of desperation and camaraderie make for a highly entertaining watch. Jennifer Aniston's performance as Dr. Julia Harris, a sexually aggressive dentist, is a standout and showcases her versatility and comedic chops. Aniston flips her typical rom-com persona on its head, delivering a deliciously wicked and unapologetic performance that steals scenes and adds a spicy layer to the film's dynamic. Her character's outrageous behavior is a departure from Aniston's usual roles, proving her ability to tackle diverse characters with ease. Dr. Julia Harris is memorable not just for her stunning looks but for Aniston's ability to embody a character so distinctively different, adding depth and a wicked sense of humor to the film. Kevin Spacey and Colin Farrell, as the other two horrible bosses, contribute significantly to the film's success, each bringing their unique brand of villainy and comedic talent to their roles. The absurdity of the bosses' behavior, juxtaposed with the trio's increasingly desperate schemes to rid themselves of their workplace tormentors, drives the film's humor and plot forward in unpredictable and hilarious ways. "Horrible Bosses" thrives on its witty dialogue, tight pacing, and a plot that escalates in both absurdity and laughter. The film doesn't just play for cheap laughs; it cleverly comments on the modern workplace's power dynamics and the lengths to which people will go for a semblance of happiness and control over their lives. In conclusion, "Horrible Bosses" is a wildly entertaining film that delivers laughs, thrills, and a bit of catharsis for anyone who's ever felt undervalued or mistreated at work. With standout performances, especially by Jennifer Aniston, and a clever script that balances dark humor with a light touch, it's a must-watch for fans of comedy looking for both substance and style. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/06/24 Full Review Gigsy V Yeah, decent; Charlie Day is the best thing about this (even if he does play himself). Great concept and very colourful re: the bosses all having very different demeanours (it doesn't hurt the film that Jen An plays a sexed-up nymph). BUT, despite its original concept, it felt formulaic. And it's pretty forgettable. I didn’t laugh all that much. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/26/24 Full Review Keith N Great film, loved this movie Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/24 Full Review cbcguy Enjoyed the hell out of this, one of those you can go back to often.
