Horrible Bosses

Is your boss a slave-driving psycho?


Horrible Bosses
Three young men each hate their respective bosses. Quitting is not an option, so, with the benefit of a few-too-many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con, the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to rid themselves of their bosses... permanently. There's only one problem: even the best laid plans are only as foolproof as the brains behind them.

98 minutes.

Tomatometer quote iconIt's nasty, uneven, and far from original, but thanks to a smartly assembled cast that makes the most of a solid premise, Horrible Bosses works.
