As far as comedies go this summer, I already know Bridesmaids is funny and I expect The Hangover Part II to be, at the very least, amusing, but I really hope Horrible Bosses lives up to its casting, because if it does it could be the breakout comedy of 2011.
Starring Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day as Nick, Kurt and Dale, Horrible Bosses centers on this trio as they search for a solution to their intolerable bosses (Jennifer Aniston, Colin Farrell and Kevin Spacey). Quitting is not an option, so, with the benefit of a few-too-many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con (Jamie Foxx), the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers…permanently. Donald Sutherland and Julie Bowen co-star.
Seth Gordon (Four Christmases and The King of Kong) directs for a July 8 release. Check out the trailer directly below.
