Three friends, Nick Hendricks (Jason Bateman), Dale Arbus (Charlie Day) and Kurt Buckman (Jason Sudeikis), hate their bosses.
Nick works at a financial firm for the sadistic David Harken (Kevin Spacey), who implies the possibility of a promotion for Nick for months, only to award it to himself.
Dale, engaged with Stacey (Lindsay Sloane), is a dental assistant being sexually harassed by his boss, Dr. Julia Harris (Jennifer Aniston).
Kurt enjoys working for Jack Pellit (Donald Sutherland), but after he unexpectedly dies of a heart attack, the company is taken over by Jack's son Bobby (Colin Farrell), an apathetic and incompetent cocaine-addicted.
At night, over drinks, Kurt jokingly suggests that their lives would be happier if their bosses were no longer around. Initially hesitant, they eventually agree to kill their employers.


Horrible Bosses is a hilarious and never boring black comedy. The script is good and the jokes are so spontaneous, that give the idea of being improvised by the actors.
Jason Bateman again shows the world he can act; Charlie Day was amazing. Jason Sudeikis does his work, but I still don't like him. Seeing Kevin Spacey play the asshole was amazing, and no matter what role is, he always nails it. Colin Farrell is also great as the cocaine-addicted jerk. Jennifer Aniston delivers plenty of laughs but still she can't act. 


David Harken: Life is a marathon and you cannot win a marathon without putting a few bandaids on your nipples!
