Considering all of the critical acclaim and audience praise that Horrible Bosses received, I thought it really sucked. 3 guys who hate their bosses plot to have them killed. Not a very amusing premise really. And if they're going to sell us on that concept then I would have preferred it to be a whole lot darker. Every performance is excessive and pushes too hard for laughs. I was irritated by every single character in this movie and found myself looking forward to the end-credits. Subtlety would have lifted Horrible Bosses and I would have been sold on these guys plotting a deathless revenge, rather than murder. And I found their references to Strangers on a Train and Throw Momma From The Train a desperate attempt to convince the audience of what they were trying to do. Fail.
