For Nick, Kurt and Dale, the only thing that would make the daily grind more tolerable would be to grind their intolerable bosses 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, the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly fool proof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers...permanently. There's only one problem: even the best-laid plans are only as foolproof as the brains behind them. Jason Bateman (Arrested Development), and Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day (both in Going the Distance) play the three hapless workers, while two-timeOscar® winner Kevin Spacey, and Golden Globe winners Colin Farrell and Jennifer Aniston are their unbearable bosses. Academy Award® winner Jamie Foxx plays the con, whose street cred is priced on a sliding scale in this workplace comedy directed by Seth Gordon (Four Christmases).

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
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.

Common Sense Says
All-star comedy is pretty raunchy -- and hilarious.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this funny-but-raunchy comedy earns its R rating with scenes that include violence (guns and shooting, some fighting), heavy sexual innuendo (though no nudity), and almost constant foul language (including "f--k," "s--t," "p---y," and much more). Plus, one of the movie's villains has a cocaine problem, and the main characters are seen (accidentally) getting high as well as drinking. Of the three main characters (played by Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day), one is a serial seducer who sleeps with more than one woman during the movie, but the others -- despite planning to murder their evil bosses (Kevin Spacey, Colin Farrell, and Jennifer Aniston) -- are generally good-hearted people.
