Murder, nine- to- five style
WHILE I can’t really relate to the idea of being trapped in an office nine- to- five with a boss who makes you want to take up murder – mine’s a wonderfully generous, handsome and thoughtful bloke – it’s not hard to see why it could happen. Bosses aren’t exempt from bad behaviour. Such is the case here, where three good mates with employers of various degrees of meanness and inappropriateness conspire to knock each other’s off after one too many bad days at work. While it’s all surface comedy ( and very adult), it’s good surface comedy and the three leads have a tight chemistry with each other and their office antagonisers – Jennifer Aniston ( pictured with Charlie Day as Dale) Colin Farrell and Kevin Spacey – are particularly good and all terrifically trashy as the horrible bosses in question. Extras: A Blu- ray combo pack that offers the same sort of fun as the film, with the cast and director recalling their own ‘‘ horrible boss’’ moments and how to deal with such horrors in the real workplace. Plus there are deleted scenes, an extended cut of the film and a soundtrack featurette.
