Horrible Bosses [2011]

The laughs in Horrible Bosses are far from scarce but not exactly consistent. They’re, in fact, scattered freely throughout the film like the cocaine on Bobby Pellitt’s (Colin Farrell) rug. Everyone seems to be giving it their all, especially Charlie Day, Jennifer Aniston and Kevin Spacey, but the film doesn’t quite gel. It’s not as funny as it should be, as dark as it should be, or as original as it should be, but it’s definitely an excuse to watch a bunch of talented people behaving badly. Not a disaster, but nothing special either.
