Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
Management candidate Nick Hendricks (Jason Bateman) has been logging 12-hour days and eating everything his twisted supervisor Dave Harken (Kevin Spacey) dishes out, only to find he's never getting promoted. Meanwhile, dental assistant Dale Arbus (Charlie Day) has been struggling to maintain his self-respect against the relentless X-rated advances of Dr. Julia Harris, D.D.S. (Jennifer Aniston). And accountant Kurt Buckman (Jason Sudeikis) has just learned that his company's corrupt new owner, Bobby Pellit (Colin Farrell), is not only bent on ruining his career but plans to funnel toxic waste into an unsuspecting population. So, on the strength of a few-too-many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con (Jamie Foxx), the guys devise a convoluted but foolproof plan to rid the world of their respective employers... permanently. But even the best-laid plans are only as good as the brains behind them.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A lot of low-stakes humor, occasionally brought off by a mostly ingratiating cast.
Fresh: For something like Horrible Bosses to sparkle, the actors have to shine... and shine they do.
Fresh: If the film works at all - and it mostly does - it's because of Bateman's performance (speaking of sympathetic: he could have played Patrick Bateman and made him seem adorable).
Fresh: As far-fetched and filthy-minded as the film often gets, there is a subversive universal appeal in play that keeps lingering doubts at bay.
For those of you who disliked this movie, there are two options as to why you didn't like it.
1. You do not have a sense of humor.
2. You yourself are the boss
