DVD: Horrible Bosses (15)
Friday 18 November 2011
And here's yet another woeful comedy about America's working wounded. This time around, three stiffs or "spineless losers" – played by Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis – plot to kill their vile bosses: a nymphomaniac dentist (Jennifer Aniston), a sadist (Kevin Spacey) and a sleazeball (Colin Farrell).
The bosses equip themselves quite well (particularly Spacey, reviving his brutal boss in Swimming with Sharks: "You stupid little runt, I own you," he whispers to Bateman's worker bee), but the three pals are whiny and outstay their welcome by over an hour. Best to watch Mike Judge's Office Space for a genuinely funny look at nine-to-five misery.
