Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis want to give their superiors the axe in the trailer for Horrible Bosses

May. 11, 2011by: Niki Stephens

One trailer I've been waiting for is this one. HORRIBLE BOSSES has a stellar cast and a plot we could all relate with at one time or another. That's what makes a film like OFFICE SPACE so great. But will HORRIBLE BOSSES even come close to rivaling the greatness that is OFFICE SPACE?

Instead of just telling their bosses to "go f*ck themselves", three friends (Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis) think it would be a better idea to just kill their respective superiors off. Jennifer Aniston and Colin Farrell might be the easy targets, but you are fooling yourself if you think Kevin Spacey isn't going to go down fighting. The trailer is freaking hilarious, especially the stuff with Farrell. I nearly choked when he made the "Professor Xavier" comment.

Check out the synopsis, poster, and trailer below. HORRIBLE BOSSES is due to release July 8, 2011.

"For Nick, Kurt and Dale, the only thing that would make the daily grind more tolerable would be to grind their intolerable bosses into dust. Quitting is not an option, so, with the benefit of a few-too-many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con, the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers...permanently. There's only one problem: even the best laid plans are only as foolproof as the brains behind them."

Extra Tidbit: Share your horrible boss experiences below. At one of my former day jobs, one of my bosses would stare and giggle while I had to pick up tons of dead crickets off the ground. Asshole.

I was out sick with a 105 temp when I worked at a cafe, found someone to work my shift, and then called my boss personally to make sure that was ok.

He said it was and even got worried about me, insisting he would have me stay home, regardless of getting my shift covered, so that I wouldn't get anyone else sick.

After the weekend, another employee asked why I didn't work there anymore. I told her I still did. She told me I didn't. I refuted.

Going into work that Monday, my boss

And I'm still a little peeved.

Jen, All Is Forgiven

Bounty Hunter, Switch, everything because this looks amazing.
Even if the movie sucks the hotdog scene alone warrents forgiveness.

Looks A-grade in my book. However, I am having an extremely difficult time buying Day's "my rocket of a boss won't stop hitting on me" predicament being a real problem. This is the hottest I've seen of Aniston.

Looks good from what I saw, but I gave up after waiting 10 minutes for JoBlo's servers to load it though. Get your shit together.
Aniston is still fugly but I'll watch anything with Charlie Day!
Bad Boss story, I had a male pansexual boss ages ago, 'rimjob Tuesday's' still give me shudders
