Horrible Bosses (2011)
December 25, 2022 7:20 AM - Subscribe

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 foolproof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers... permanently.

Roger Ebert gave it 3 1/2 stars. Peter Travers wasn't as big a fan.

At that year's MTV Movie Awards, both Aniston and Farrell were up for 'Best On-Screen Dirt Bag.' Aniston won.

Currently streaming in the US on HBO Max, for rent or sale at the usual places.

i really liked this, quality farce comedy. too bad about spacey's presence but he plays a shitheel so pretty on brand.

aniston crushes. forget about the romcoms, from this to the good girl, such a tremendous range.

Found the protagonists.too unlikable to get on with this. The little one particularly was very irritating.

You'd think the trio of Bateman, Day, and Sudeikis would be the highlight, but this is Jennifer Aniston's movie. She's so good as a villain here.
