    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Here's a hit-and-miss farce that leaves you wishing it was funnier than it is. Why? Because it wussies out on a sharp premise. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Horrible Bosses has a handful of hilarious moments, but it's not exactly funny and not exactly serious, either. show more

    Scott Bowles USA Today

    It's over-the-top stuff, to be sure. But Bosses never crosses that line into the macabre. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Horrible Bosses has preposterousness to burn, but no finesse and no interest in having any. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    Short, sour and scabrous, Bosses is that paradoxical thing: a situation comedy where neither situation nor comedy is particularly effective where nonetheless Jason Bateman is sidesplitting, as is Colin Farrell in a supporting role. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    All those who have to drag themselves to work every morning will surely find some comfort in Seth Gordon's cheerfully outrageous revenge comedy, Horrible Bosses. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    The lameness of the gags and dialogue and the film's frequent deep dives for the bottom at the expense of real comedy speak to desperation in Hollywood to figure out the audience for contemporary naughty comedy. show more

    Ian Buckwalter NPR

    When faced with the choice of which gag to go for, Horrible Bosses generally selects the raunchiest laugh possible, all other considerations be damned. show more

    Aside from having murder on their minds, these three are a lot more well-behaved than the "Hangover" guys. show more

    Terrific movie! Hilarious characters and great subject matter. I didn\'t care for the ending, but this is a great film nonetheless.

    Awesome Movie If you have a problem with the F word being used alot well then don\'******* it just because these people who think Hollywood uses the f word too much doesn\'t mean the movie isn\'t Freaking Hilarious its one of the BEST!!!! Please people don\'t whine about the f word being use alot because you hear it every movie anyways

    it takes alot to make me laugh but this movies was hysterical! I can just imagine the writers having a ball writing this one. LOVED Jaime Fox as the \"Murder Consultant\"

    All the F-words really take away from the hilarity of a movie. Same thing for \"The Hangover 2) it wasn\'t very funny listening to all the f-words and took away any comic impact the word would have had in situations where most of us would have used it. Hollywood-take heed. I\'m not the only one who feels thisway!
