Horrible Bosses [Blu-Ray] Seth Gordon

Horrible Bosses [Blu-Ray] Seth Gordon
Director Seth Gordon's crude and far-fetched A-list comedy touches on a subject many hard-working individuals can relate to: sociopathic employers that dangle your job over your head. At first, the film actually delivers genuine laughs before becoming yet another carbon copy version of The Hangover. After reaching their fill of being tortured by their bosses on a daily basis (played by Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston and Colin Farrell), Nick (Jason Bateman), Kurt (Jason Sudekis) and Dale (Charlie Day) decide to murder each other's horrible boss. As one could expect, nothing goes as planned. Horrible Bosses is only as good as its cast and each of the horrible bosses definitely shine in their showcase roles. Viewers will get a kick out of hearing explicit words come out of Jennifer Aniston's mouth, while also loving Kevin Spacey playing an identical role to his one in Swimming with Sharks. However, it's Colin Farrell that steals the show with his comedic timing and sharp improvisational skills. Unfortunately, the bosses aren't given nearly as much screen time as the three goofy protagonists, which is a shame, because all their scenes drag on far too long, especially if you watch the unnecessary extended cut. Although Horrible Bosses may be one of this year's most successful star-studded comedies, its inconsistency won't make this a cult comedy classic. The Blu-Ray special features are jam-packed with featurettes of the cast revealing their worst jobs before they became money-hungry celebrities, deleted scenes and an alternate opening that was far too sad and realistic to use as an opener. The Blu-Ray combo pack comes with an extra Blu-Ray of the theatrical version (recommended) and a DVD of the film, which will inevitably be lent out to your mainstream filmgoer friends. (Warner)
