Horrible Bosses

Horrible Bosses is the story of three guys who are so unhappy with their bosses, and don't feel like they can quit their jobs, that they decide to off them. What they don't realise is that life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans and as they try to come up with the best way to achieve their goal, their plans go slightly awry. 

The three guys are not the important part of this film though - it is the bosses who steal the show. Jennifer Aniston plays Julia, the sex crazed man-eater, Kevin Spacey plays Dave Harken, the psycho and Colin Farrell (not remotely attractive thanks to some hair and make-up magic!) plays Bobby, the coke-head "tool". Harken clearly is slightly unhinged, Julia will get her man even if she has to resort to blackmail and when Bobby tells his guy to "trim the fat" he literally means fire the fat people.

With brilliant and all-too-minor cameos from Donald Sutherland and Jamie Foxx, the men's attempts to rid themselves of these evil bosses go from bad to worse in what is a surprising and hilarious plot. I had absolutely no clue what was going to happen in the next scene, let alone the end of the film.  The whole cinema was laughing out loud (often embarrassingly so).

Sadly, it's a little too like The Hangover which makes it look like its not as cool cousin but still very worth a watch.
