3 out of 10 Occasionally amusing but mostly crude,
mary from Limerick, 02 Jun 2012
The Hangover guys' success may well have secured a green light for this occasionally amusing but mostly crude, charmless and misjudged comedy that veers between broad knockabout material and something aspiring to the more realistic, hyperobserved comedy style of TV's The Office. Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day play Nick, Kurt and Dale, three amigos with one awful thing in common: they are each being victimised by their horrible bosses: a corporate bully (Kevin Spacey), a cokehead asshole (Colin Farrell with a comedy-fake combover) and a sex-pest dentist (Jennifer Aniston). Advised by an absurdly unconvincing tough guy (Jamie Foxx), they conceive a strangers-on-a-train plan to kill each others' bosses. The plot itself is chaotic, and not in an especially good way, and the tonal challenges and problems inherent in ultra-black comedy are not addressed. Perhaps inevitably, the three nasty bosses are far more interesting than.

0.5 out of 10 Desperately bad movie
Anne from Dublin, 16 May 2012
Rated 1 because that's the lowest! Didn't even finish the film which is something I hate doing. There is no substance whatsoever in this movie. It is utterly unwatchable. Kevin Spacey is the same character as he played in Swimming with Sharks - which was a very good film. Jennifer Anniston uses the entire range of sexual innuendo and bad language in her repetoire. Colin Farrell is funny but completely wasted. The underlings are so awful - I think the bosses treated them well considering what losers they are. The idea that JA would have any attraction for her assistant is a joke but not unfortunately a funny one. Do not waste your time getting this film.

0.5 out of 10 Sexist rubbish
Lorie from Kerry, 04 Jan 2012
Not really worth giving it a 1 to be honest.. Crass language does not make a movie good...and as for the Gender stereotyping ...... need i say more!!! .... I like a good laugh as the next person but this film did not even provide that... compared to such funny films as Bridemaids or even Knocked Up....it would mark a zero...

1.5 out of 10 Should have been better
Barra from Cork, 27 Mar 2012
Had all the ingredients to be a great movie but just didn't deliver. All the characters were well acted, especially Jamie Foxx, Colin Farell and Jenifer Aniston, but the story was disjointed and the laughs isolated. I think the cast and crew had more fun making it than it is to watch.

3.5 out of 10 Hangover for beginners.
Seamus from Monaghan, 13 Mar 2012
If you liked The Hangover you'll like this. It's funny but not 'falling off the sofa' funny. The main characters are well acted and well written but for me the star was Jennifer Anniston playing a 'vamp'. It was a good night in and I enjoyed it but it didn't change my life.

What's it about....
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...
