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.

Just a little while ago we posted the first trailer for Horrible Bosses, the film in which Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudekis decide to kill each others' bosses.
Even aside from the sight gags there's a lot of good stuff going on in here, whether Charlie Day cutting loose in a similar way that he does on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia or the basic joy of watching Jason Bateman attempt to drink a full glass of scotch at 8 a.m
Showing off a side of both Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman that you've never seen before-- a raunchy, occasionally poop-smeared side-- is this summer's The Change-Up, the R-rated comedy from the director behind Wedding Crashers and the writers of The Hangover
