More often than not Horrible Bosses comes off as one of those comedies which feels more template than anything else.

So, of course, a comedy of errors ensues since these everyday guys are the last you'd think could pull of such a dirty task. And man is it fun to watch it unfold.

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

he trio's hysteria mounts in a manner conspicuously designed to conjure up comparisons with the panic experienced by the boys in The Hangover.

It's tempting to label Horrible Bosses a post-Hangover comedy. For all I know it may have been in the works before that box-office smash saw the light of day, but it emits the same vibe, even if it doesn't go to the same extremes...

It's not very tightly plotted or precisely scripted but the three leads have lots of obvious camaraderie and energy together - confirmed in a bloopers reel after the end credits - which help to keep the film moving along.

These bosses cannot justify either murder or lasting comic memories, fatally compromising a farce that could have been great but ends up merely mediocre.

The sub-Porky's style humour elicits a few guffaws, but a little more wit and subtlety would have helped.

Overall, a pleasant surprise.

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

Gordon knows what works and what doesn't, pushing the leads' chummy chemistry to the fore while allowing the schematic and, frankly, highly unlikely murder plot to sink into the background.

The movie's main thrust is lowball wish fulfillment, which comes too cheaply.

a crowd-pleaser

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

For something like Horrible Bosses to sparkle, the actors have to shine... and shine they do.

The coarseness wouldn't be so bad if at least the steady stream of obscenities were funny. But there is, after all, an art to talking dirty.

Horrible Bosses offers a reminder that adherence to formula may not be among the signal virtues of comedy, but--provided the jokes are funny--it's no great vice either.

The movie has just enough raunchiness to identify it as a 2011 comedy, just enough cleverness to admire, and just the right camaraderie among its three male stars, which turns out to be the movie's greatest strength. Bateman plays straight-man...

As they say, the best laid plans go oft awry. So what transpires in a comedy about the worst-laid schemes? These guys don't seem built for premeditated murder but are perfectly capable of mayhem.

When added altogether, Horrible Bosses gets the job done but is not recommended for advancement.
