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

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

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

If the R rated comedy were a man, and it would almost certainly be a man, then he'd be a lad; a boy; an overly gregarious, beer soaked, open shirted alpha with a rapacious sexuality.

A mess.

The talented cast and colorful vulgarities work overtime to cover for a lack of coherence, but they can only distract for so long.

A movie afraid to follow through on its nasty premise, leaving just a handful of mildly amusing jokes and a sense of lost potential.

A lot of low-stakes humor, occasionally brought off by a mostly ingratiating cast.

Horrible Bosses is the most repellent example yet of a trend for Hollywood to rely on the lowest common denominator from the first frame to last.

The plot is ... flimsy and the three screenwriters struggle to bring the murderous mayhem to a satisfying conclusion.

Watching good actors let their hair down can be fun, but watching them let their standards down isn't.

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

Yet another unoriginal and out-of-touch Hollywood comedy prizing its R cert status over substance.

The characters in Horrible Bosses are defined by their quirks, which are spelled out in boldface.

Probably isn't horrible enough to excite younger viewers and will certainly not attract anyone else.

After watching this trio of bumbling schemers get in and out of trouble with a series of crazy shenanigans and listening to the filthy dialogue, you will feel like taking a long, hot shower to wash away any recollection of sitting through this garbage.

The stars lack the charisma, the comic energy and the overall appeal of the A-listers playing supporting roles. That's a fundamental miscalculation.

The screenplay is a hit and miss; but there are some laughs.

What passes for comedy here doesn't have a chance against a thesis so scary and sad.
