A star-studded black comedy for anyone who's ever fantasised about killing their boss.
| Original Score: 3/5
Horrible Bosses is very funny and features a great cast that exudes wonderful chemistry.
| Original Score: 7/10
Colin Farrell is a comedy genius.
Funny enough to give America's embattled working folk an outlet for their frustration, and America's employer classes a bad case of nerves.
| Original Score: 3/4
Rides the entertaining pitch for the entire runtime -- without attempting to offer some kind of deeper insight or social commentary.
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.
... An ingenious though not quite original premise, genuine wit and a fantastic cast.
| Original Score: A-
Forget The Hangover: Part II and Bridesmaids. Horrible Bosses was the funniest movie of this past summer.
| Original Score: 4/5
a subversively prescient black comedy
Fun, throwaway, unofficial remake of the classic 1980 workplace comedy Nine to Five.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
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.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
A fun, lively chemistry between Nick, Kurt and Dale keeps this snappy story whipping along from gag to gag at a merciless pace.
Whilst the bosses are unnecessarily over-the-top, the film still manages to work as a light-hearted buddy comedy.
| Original Score: B+
Hangover filmmakers, this is how you do it.
| Original Score: B
It's far from perfect, but it features more laughs than Bad Teacher and The Hangover Part II combined.
Everyone is having a good time making this film and, unlike some, they're able to share that with the audience.
As far-fetched and filthy-minded as the film often gets, there is a subversive universal appeal in play that keeps lingering doubts at bay.
A guilty pleasure for anyone who hates their boss, this is original, superbly performed and wickedly funny.
Horrible Bosses may not be ground-breaking comedy, but it *is* comedy.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
