Horrible Bosses (2011)
Horrible Bosses SynopsisManagement candidate Nick Hendricks (Jason Bateman) has been logging 12-hour days and eating everything his twisted supervisor Dave Harken (Kevin Spacey) dishes out, toward the promise of a well-earned promotion. But now he knows that's never going to happen. 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), when she suddenly turns up the heat. 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.
What can you do when your boss is a psycho, a man-eater or a total tool?
Quitting is not an option. These monsters must be stopped. So, on the strength of a few-too-many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con whose street cred is priced on a sliding scale (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.

Jason Bateman Admits People Weren't Exactly Clamoring For Horrible Bosses 2
Compared to its predecessor, Horrible Bosses 2 did supremely poorly at the box office. Despite costing $7 million more than the first Horrible Bosses, the sequel wound up bringing in only half the amount of money. It's not exactly hard to figure out why this happened, but Jason Bateman explained it rather perfectly in a recent interview.

Jason Sudeikis Says There's No Horrible Bosses 2 Script, And He's Not Signed On
Just last week New Line announced plans to produce a sequel to their R-rated caper Horrible Bosses. The comedy that centered on a "crisscross" murder scenario a la Strangers on a Train drew positive reviews for its trio of TV stars Charlie Day, Jason Bateman and Jason Sudeikis, and earned more than $209 million worldwide.

Original Writers Brought Back To Write A Horrible Bosses Sequel
I really hope that that they don't pull a Hangover Part II†and try and get away with making the same film twice. After what transpired in the first movie, it's hard to imagine that the top-billed trio would ever try killing their bosses again, meaning that it would be betraying the characters right from the start. I would also really like to see them bring back Bob Newhart as Jason Bateman's sadistic new boss, but I would understand if that's not doable.

Horrible Bosses Will Stream In A Cloud And Come In A Totally Inappropriate Edition
It may not be the best disc release ever, but Horrible Bosses is really funny and is worth a purchase. Besides, it will include Jennifer Aniston eating a popsicle in her underwear. If that isnít incentive I can always refer you to the first paragraph and try to sell Colin Farrell with a bald spot.

Colin Farrell's Best Role: Horrible Bosses
Farrell's existence must be a debilitating slap in the face to ugly, annoying people, which is precisely why Farrell is so brilliant in Horrible Bosses.† Itís like director Seth Gordon intentionally stripped away every Farrell-esque attribute apart from the blind confidence and told the actor to go to town

Jason Bateman Interview: On Horrible Bosses, Teen Wolf And His Summer Takeover
The key to Horrible Bosses, how it gets away with mining a murder plot for laughs, is the rapport between Bateman, Sudeikis and Day as the scheming idiots who actually think they can get away with it. When I sat down with Bateman on his own, I asked him to talk about the way they developed that rapport.

Red Band Trailer For Horrible Bosses
When you think about it, running green band trailers for an R-rated movie doesn't make a lot of sense. Considering that anyone that isn't age appropriate won't be allowed to buy tickets, why both advertising for the younger crowd by censoring your movie? When studios start cutting out curse words and picking alternate scenes, especially when it comes to comedies, they are handicapping themselves by a) showing off their product in an inaccurate light and b) not showing the best stuff they can.
