Sneak Peek: Horrible Bosses

Character actors Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis join A-Listers Jennifer Aniston, Colin Farrell, Kevin Spacey and Jamie Foxx, in New Line Cinema's dark comedy "Horrible Bosses."

In the film, management candidate Nick Hendricks (Bateman) has been logging 12-hour days and eating everything his twisted supervisor Dave Harken (Spacey) dishes out, toward the promise of a well-earned promotion. But now he knows that's never going to happen.

Meanwhile, dental assistant Dale Arbus (Day) has been struggling to maintain his self-respect against the relentless X-rated advances of Dr. Julia Harris, D.D.S. (Aniston), when she suddenly turns up the heat.

And accountant Kurt Buckman (Sudeikis) has just learned that his company's corrupt new owner, Bobby Pellit (Farrell), is not only bent on ruining his career but plans to funnel toxic waste into an unsuspecting population.

What can you do when your boss is a psycho, a man-eater or a total tool?

Quitting is not an option. These monsters must be stopped. So, on the strength of a few-too-many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con whose street cred is priced on a sliding scale (Foxx), the guys devise a convoluted but foolproof plan to rid the world of their respective employers… permanently.

But even the best-laid plans are only as good as the brains behind them.

"Horrible Bosses" is directed by Seth Gordon and produced by Brett Ratner and Jay Stern, from a screenplay by Michael Markowitz and John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein, story by Markowitz.

Opening soon across the Philippines, "Horrible Bosses" is a New Line Cinema distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
