Horrible Bosses is the latest and least entertaining in a line of R-rated comedies, including The Hangover 2, Bridesmaids and Bad Teacher. Most of the humor involves outrageously profane or sexually lewd language and behavior - heavy on the raunchy side rather than the witty. For a movie such as this, it’s imperative to have a good balance. A running joke involves the fact that Charlie Day’s character is a registered sex offender because he was once arrested drunkenly urinating in a playground in the middle of the night when no children were around.
The film lacked real depth and had little to no heart. It felt hollow and bleak. The lack of character development rendered an “I could care less what happens to these characters” attitude. But still, with a cast like this, it would be hard not to merit a few laughs, and as poorly paced as it was, it's still better than some. In conclusion, if there was nothing better on TV and you were stuck at home on a Saturday night, it would most definitely be worthy of your time.
Anyone else agree?
