Do you hate your job? Is the nine to five getting to be too much? Are the weekends the highlight of your life? Well Hollywood is offering a solution; kill your boss.
Horrible bosses is a movie about three mistreated employees, played by Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis, who decide that they’ve had enough of their overbearing bosses. They then launch a plan to murder their bosses, Jennifer Aniston, Colin Farrell and Kevin Spacey. To do this they enlist the help of a con artist, Jamie Foxx, who gives them tips on how to pull off their plan.
The movie will hit cinemas on the 8th of July in America and on the 22nd of July in the UK and Ireland. Despite only coming out this year, the first version of the script was purchased by New Line Cinema way back in 2005. The script was later rewritten, in 2010, before the film went into production.
The trailer was released on the 11th of May. The movie looks promising, but I can’t help think that any humour would fade where they to actually succeed in killing any of their bosses. However, judging by the trailer, it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen. Of the bosses, Colin Farrell’s character is my favourite. For this role Farrell is rocking the comb over, which, fortunately, he doesn’t have to do in reality just yet. His character is the dumbest of the bosses, but he gets some of the better lines. Jennifer Aniston plays a dentist who is sexually harassing her employee and Kevin Spacey plays the powerful, manipulative boss.
Its makes me glad to be unemployed, although I’m not condoning murdering your boss or anything. The movie looks really funny and the trailer should be a good indicator of whether or not you’ll like the movie. It’s a comedy, but, let’s face it, it’s not suitable for kids, though it is tamer than the hangover, it will probably attract the same audience.
