A simple premise that’s been done before, Horrible Bosses is a very funny comedy that injects a lot of fun into what could’ve been a lame-o script.  Writer Michael Markowitz and director Seth Gordon really put together a tight, funny comedy that you would have to be made of stone not to laugh at.

Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis play Nick, Dale and Kurt, three buddies with three of the worst bosses on the planet.  Nick’s boss (played by Kevin Spacey) is a psycho and egomaniac, Dale’s boss (played by Jennifer Aniston) is an oversexed dentist and Kurt’s boss (played by Colin Farrell) is a coked up, son of the boss determined to run a good business into the ground.

Casting in this movie is spot on.  Charlie Day comes off as a slightly smarter version of Charlie, from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, but it works.  Sudeikis plays a nice guy/horn dog.  And Bateman, as always, plays the reasonable guy surrounded by unreasonable characters.  Jamie Foxx is funny in a supporting role of the “murder consultant and a few other comedians have what amount to a little more than cameos.

I laughed and, as anyone who has read my reviews knows, I’m a tough audience.  You gotta appreciate a good script.  The set ups make sense and, most importantly, the characters’ behavior make sense.  Surprisingly, Colin Farrell almost steals the show.

Go see this one, bros.  You’ll be glad you did.  I give Horrible Bosses 8.5 keggers out of 10.
