All-star black comedy about three friends (Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis) who have despicable, overbearing bosses (Kevin Spacey, Colin Farrell with an awesome comb over and Jennifer Aniston) that make their lives miserable. They decide to do the reasonable thing and murder them.... More
With the help of "murder consultant" Jamie Foxx, they devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers. One problem: even the best laid plans are only as foolproof as the brains behind them. Hide

Comedy films have two options: keep the gags coming so fast there’s no time to get bored (Airplane, Scary Movie), or make people care so much they won’t mind when the laughs dry up. Treading a similarly tricksy path to the classic Office Space, Seth (The King Of Kong) Gordon’s latest manages both in some style.... More
Adult without being crass, goofy without being stupid, Bosses is one of the funniest films of the year. Bateman is a businessman busting his guts for a promotion he’s not going to get, thanks to the repellent Kevin Spacey. Day is a dental assistant (and registered sex offender – you’ll find out why) getting sexually harassed by a vampish Jennifer Aniston. Sudeikis, meanwhile, has to cope with a coked-up, comb-overed Colin Farrell instructing him to "trim the fat" (fire the overweight – or pregnant). You can probably guess which of them gets the least sympathy.
With all three baddies riffing brilliantly on their public personas, plus great cameos from Jamie Foxx and Ioan Grufford, it’s a packed programme. As well as lots of funny – if largely unrepeatable – dialogue, and witty observations (when you arrange a pay-off, who buys the briefcase?), the leads’ banter has an agreeably loose, Anchorman-ish feel that makes them seem like old friends. Because they so obviously like each other, you’ll like them too – something that earns the film so much comedy mileage it’ll keep you, laughing, in your seat until the end of the blooper reel.Hide

I agree with the other reviews...I watched this with high expectations, especially with all the big names. It was humerous, a bit of a laugh here and there. Jason Bateman is funny with his serious look and he doesn't even have to speak. However, something was missing from this movie...I can't quite put my finger on it, the 'laugh out loud' factor was missing.

With all the famous names you would think this would be a movie well worth watching its not a bad movie but its definately one you shouldnt spend your money on instead wait till it shows on sky or free tv then the only person that stands out is Jason bateman who really has improved a lot in recent years
