Horrible Bosses rides on the casting of its three titular bosses: Dave (Kevin Spacey), whose seemingly whole purpose in life is to make Nick's (Jason Bateman) life a complete living hell, forcing him to work long hours and endure psychological torture with the promise of a promotion at the end of the tunnel.

Horrible Bosses has a great concept for a movie. I mean everyone bitches about there boss, and everyone wants to do something about it. But no one ever really does.

Dale Arbus (Charlie Day) works as a Dental Assistant to a flirtatious maniacal Dentist Dr. Julia Harris (Jennifer Aniston). Kurt Buckman’s (Jason Sudeikis) diligent and ethical chief Jack Pellitt (Donald Sutherland) passes away due to a heart attack and his drug infused sex crazed son Bobby (Colin Farrell) takes over the family business. The underprivileged abused trio seeks advise/help from M. Jones (Jamie Foxx) to eliminate their problems.
A dark comedy that I thoroughly enjoyed from …
