Director: Seth Gordon. Cast: Jason Bateman, Kevin Spacey, Charlie Day, Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis, Colin Farrell, Donald Sutherland, Jamie Foxx. 98 min. Rated R. Comedy.
Meh. Three employees (Bateman, Day, and Sudeikis) are abused by their employers (Spacey, Aniston, and Farrell, respectively), to the point that they decide to kill them. Although the basic concept of employers taking advantage of their employees' desperation during these high unemployment times provides a decent satire core, and I agree that any comedy storyline should be forgiven to be an exaggeration, I had a hard time believing these characters to be pushed so far as to commit murder for their abuse at work. Contains a few good laughs, but overall, it's just brainless entertainment.
