Horrible Bosses – Trailer

Horrible Bosses is a 2011 black comedy film directed by Seth Gordon, written by Michael Markowitz, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein based on a story by Markowitz, and starring Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston, Colin Farrell, Kevin Spacey and Jamie Foxx. The main plot follows three friends (portrayed by Bateman, Day, and Sudeikis) who decide to murder their respective overbearing, abusive bosses (portrayed by Spacey, Aniston and Farrell) who they believe are standing in the way of their happiness. The film premiered in Los Angeles on June 30, 2011, and received a wide release on July 8, 2011. Markowitz’s script was bought by New Line Cinema in 2005 and the film spent six years in various states of pre-production with a variety of actors attached to different roles. By 2010, Goldstein and Daley rewrote the script and the film went into production.

The film exceeded financial expectations upon release, accruing over $28 million in the first three days of release to make it the number two film in the United States during its opening weekend and went on to become the highest grossing black comedy film of all time in unadjusted dollars, breaking the record previously set by The War of the Roses in 1990. As of August 22, 2011, the film has grossed over $157 million worldwide. The film opened to positive critical reception with several critics praising the ensemble cast with each lead being singled out for their performances across reviews. The plot received a more mixed response contrasting reviewers who felt it was dark, funny and explored its premise well with reviewers who felt the jokes were racist, homophobic and misogynistic.
