For Nick (Jason Bateman), Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) and Dale (Charlie Day) the only pleasurable thing to make the daily grind at work more tolerable, would be to grind their intolerable bosses, (Kevin Spacey), (Colin Farrell) and (Jennifer Aniston) into dust.
As quitting is not an option, the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to extricate themselves of their respective employers. Having had several drinks too many and under the dubious advisement of a hustling ex-con (Jamie Foxx), they put their flawless schemes into action. The only problem is that the plans are only as prefect as the brains behind them...
Directed by Seth Gordon (FOUR CHRISTMASES, THE KING OF KONG: A FISTFUL OF QUARTERS), the film stars Jason Bateman (COUPLES RETREAT), Charlie Day (GOING THE DISTANCE) and Jason Sudeikis (HALL PASS) star as the three hapless workers. Jennifer Aniston (HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU), Colin Farrell (CRAZY HEART) and two-time Oscar® winner Kevin Spacey (THE USUAL SUSPECTS), star as their unbearable bosses. Oscar® winner Jamie Foxx (RAY) stars as the plotters' unlikely mentor, whose street cred is priced on a sliding scale, while the main cast also includes veteran actor Donald Sutherland and Julie Bowen (TV's MODERN FAMILY).
