Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis hate their Horrible Bosses; quite naturally as they happen to be three fairly odious individuals. The films opening scenes introduce the viewer to these bosses and during these sequences I wondered why Hollywood has this propensity for crass humour involving even crasser characters at the moment. Probably because these films seem to be making squillions of dollars seems the logical answer.
Once the odiousness of the bosses has been established the film moves on to show what the three employees set out to do to rid themselves of these irksome bosses. From this point the film follows the style of The Hangover as the three of them ricochet from one startling mess to another. This section of the film is funny in many parts but no more sophisticated than the opening moments.
