Nine to Five meets Strangers on a Train in this far­ci­cal com­edy, which re­volves around a trio of hap­less wage slaves (Jason Bate­man, Jason Sudeikis and Char­lie Day) who are so fed up with their re­spec­tive bosses from-hell that they de­cide to bump them off. The would-be as­sas­sins’ hope­lessly bungling ef­forts pro­duce a steady sup­ply of rude laughs, with the ac­tors clearly hav­ing a lot of fun. Bate­man un­der­plays beau­ti­fully as the most like­able of the put-upon un­der­lings, while Kevin Spacey, Colin Far­rell and Jen­nifer Anis­ton shine as the de­spi­ca­ble bosses – Anis­ton, in par­tic­u­lar, has enor­mous fun play­ing a per­matanned maneater, a role that couldn’t be fur­ther re­moved from her usual perky rom­com hero­ines.
