Review:

When this film was released it turned out to be another over the top summer comedy to half-watch while eating expensive popcorn and staying cool indoors. I suspected this would be somewhat lame when the credits listed four writers as the authors. Director Seth Gordon’s movie starts out as a dark comedy in which three losers join together to form a plan to knock off each other’s tyrannical bosses.***

Nick (Jason Bateman) works for a boss (delightfully played by Kevin Spacey) who bullies him and dangles a promotion before him. Dale (Charlie Day) is a dental assistant beset by a sex-crazy dentist (Jennifer Aniston), but he can’t quit because she threatens to expose his past conviction of child molestation. Kurt (Jason Sudelikis) likes his boss, but when the old man dies, the spoiled son who takes over the company turns out to be a pain in the you-know-where.***

Probably the funniest part of the film is the trio’s relationship to the foul-mouthed guy whom they think is a hit man. They find him on Craig’s List, and he turns out to be a specialist of another kind. Just out of prison, his middle name or handle begins with the initials “M.F.”***

Final Words:

The story is silly, but no doubt millions of people who feel trapped working under horrible bosses because of the high unemployment rate made it a box office hit. At least the cast is good, with the following no doubt enjoying playing the dark characters—Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Anniston, Colin Ferrell, and Jamie Foxx. These have all been in far better films, but they make the dark theme of murder watchable--but hopefully not acceptable. In real life the frequent news stories of guys pushed over the edge at their workplaces going in and blasting away their bosses and coworkers is anything but funny.***
