This vulgar comedy is mediocre at best with some fun performances but few jokes that actually work.

With this cast, and this concept, it's just a shame that "Horrible Bosses" pulls up just when it should be taking off.

A star-studded black comedy for anyone who's ever fantasised about killing their boss.

Funny enough to give America's embattled working folk an outlet for their frustration, and America's employer classes a bad case of nerves.

Rides the entertaining pitch for the entire runtime -- without attempting to offer some kind of deeper insight or social commentary.

This is a story for which plausibility took a running jump off a belief-suspension bridge.

It's refreshing to see that some writers still like to turn an intriguing situation into one where laughs can flow naturally as opposed to attempting to force them out with extremely bad jokes.

Flawed, and not nearly as dark as it could be, but Horrible Bosses excels if only because of the fun performances and great chemistry of the cast.

Horrible movie. One of the five worst films of 2011.

... An ingenious though not quite original premise, genuine wit and a fantastic cast.

Forget The Hangover: Part II and Bridesmaids. Horrible Bosses was the funniest movie of this past summer.

While it may only be an average comedy, derivative of better things, these days it appears we have to be thankful for what's available.

Squanders a promising dark premise and attractive production values for puerile gross-out humor, 'shocking' sex talk, lazy plotting and a desperate and almost literal deus ex machina ending.

Fun, throwaway, unofficial remake of the classic 1980 workplace comedy Nine to Five.

As sloppy and unbelievable as the movie is, it is at times very funny -- a series of ridiculous setups to get these three talented comic actors in uncomfortable positions so they can make us laugh.

A fun, lively chemistry between Nick, Kurt and Dale keeps this snappy story whipping along from gag to gag at a merciless pace.
