horrible bosses is hilarious

im 11 i have seen this movie 3 times and its hilarious but there are many crude and inappropriate jokes made by pellitt and julia but if you have mature kids that like comedies they will love it. there is one scene where a guy has cocaine at his house and they accidentally get high by knocking it over and another scene where nick drinks scotch in the morning and his boss makes a very crude joke. and a bad phone conversation comes later around the end and gregory plays it back and theres a tape recorder that has something over the top. but that movie is HILARIOUS.

Too Raunchy for Many

Extremely raunchy. Not appropriate for kids, and many parents. Many will be offended by the language and some subject matter.

Laugh for the Adults; Leave Kids at Home

As a young adult, I really found this movie hilarious. There are many parts of the movie that I laughed out loud, but this is no movie for kids. Foul language and sexual innuendos are very very common.

Who would let their child watch this!?

First I have to say that when I read reviews and see kids as young as 10-11 writing reviews on a movie like this I wonder if their parents are mentally deficient. This movie is NOT for children and any parent who would let their child (sub-18 years of age) watch this needs to take a parenting class. The movie was somewhat funny but a little too low brow to be anything better than just so-so.

HAHAHA BUT EWWWW

Okay i am a eleven uear old and i saw this movie it waz extremely funny but you need to know that your kids are really mature because just about every other line uses f*** or motherf***or any thing like that anf the f word is used in the sexual way ALOT by one of the bosses but is was hilarious ohhh and if you see it in theaters watch out the teens in the theater act a little messed up plus there is alot of drugs in the movie and killings and the boss (Jennifer Aniston) is EXTREMELY SEXUAL she is just about every other word tallking about sex or male privates plus when she comes out in the lab coat she was like naked and the lab coat kinda movied and you saw her boobs a little it was NASTY but overall the movie is for mature people ONLY but overall being eleven it was probably the best movie i have everseen

Horrible Bosses is hysterical!

Horrible Bosses is about Nick, Kurt, and Dale who are three guys that really hate their bosses. Nick's boss is just a jerk and is only mean to Nick and no one else in the office. Kurt hates his boss because his original boss (who he adored) just died, and now his coke head son is taking over for him. Dale's problem with his boss is that she has a sex addiction and is constantly trying to have sex with Dale. But Dale denies because she is always using vulgar terms, acts inappropriately, and Dale just got engaged. The three guys happen to be friends and one night ask the question, If you could kill your boss and get away with it, would you do it? They end up agreeing on this and saying yes and then the fun in Horrible Bosses begins. The film has a fair amount of crude and sexual content. This is mostly because of Jennifer Aniston's character, the sex addict, who makes strong sexual references and innuendos to Dale throughout the movie. She even succeeds at sleeping and sexually flirting with another man she doesn't even know for 10 minutes but sex takes place offscreen and talked about afterwards among other characters. Kurt is known to be a womanizer and ends up having sex twice in the movie (one woman is married) but sex takes place off screen. While talking on the phone with a man, its implied a woman is masturbating in her bathtub as she is laughing but there are no sex noises or sounds. Julia (Jennifer Aniston) takes pictures of herself having sex with Dale while he is asleep at work (we see the pictures but no sensitive body parts are shown). She shows the pictures to him and threatens to show them to his soon to be wife. Besides the sexual content in the film, there is also strong sexual innuendo and references. To add on to this, there is a lot of bad language but nothing beyond f*ck and its derivatives which are used a ton of times including mother*u*ker. There is some violence but it is a comedy and we barely see any blood. A character shoots himself in the leg. A man goes to another man's house and shoots him two or three times but this is only shown from a distance. There is some drugs but we never see them actually being used by the coke head and no one else. There is only one part where a character accidentally drops a box of cocaine and accidentally inhales it making him go crazy for the rest of the night. It's very crude and it definitely deserves the r rating, but Horrible Bosses is so funny that sometimes it even hurts.

Adult Movie

Horrible Bosses is a comedy that is very funny, That being said, most of the humor revolves around sexual/sex jokes. The other bit of the humor is made up of cursing and drugs. A woman is very horny throughout the film, and she is always trying to seduce her male assistant. This goes on for the entire film, and is quite inappropriate. Their are many other sexual things that are said and some other sexual things that happen as well. The language is bad, I think it has over 100 f-bombs. Their is really no positive messages in this film, except one character does stay loyal to his finacee throughout. Point being, this is an ADULT ONLY FILM. I was wrong to watch it myself, and i'm i'm 100% sure that this film should only be watched by adults

Sexual abuse isn't funny, not ever.

This movie was HORRIBLE. The worst part is that it minimizes the SEVERE sexual harassment of one boss toward her employee. Sexual harassment /abuse is turned into a joke. Teens and kids can NOT analyze such a message on their own, so if they see it, it should be with a lot of guidance from parents who can explain that sexual abuse is NEVER funny in real life.

Hillarious, not for kids under 17

This movie is hillarious but is not for kids under 17 it has lots of sex talks, lots of swearing, and a little violence. It has brief nudity in one scene but no complete nudity. If you are going to take your sons to the theater or watch it in dvd think it twice.

Older teens+

A film about 3 people who plan to kill each others bosses, a film for children? no! This movie is a comedy about murder and no they don't kill there bosses but its the theme of the movie and young children may not get it and it as lots of adult humor.

Great cast, Bad movie

For this great of a cast I was hoping for something better. Each boss has either violence, sex, or drugs. The violence in this movie is when one of thier bosses tries to kill them. The Sex is when one boss trys to sexualy harass one of the them. You see her naked in a lab coat for one scene and in another scene she is half naked and she sucks a popsicle, a bananna, then a hot dog in front of them. There is also one scene when he calls his boss and explains in order how they are going to have sex. The drugs is when they go to one of the bosses' house and they see cocaine. This movie is ok, but I recommend others such as The Hangover.

One of the Best R-Rated Comedies

-Violence: The movie centers around three men attempting to murder their horrible bosses. The nature of the movie is violent. In one scene, a character imagines dragging his boss by the tie and throwing him out the window. One character has a gun. He shoots someone and shoot himself in the leg. In one scene, a character jabs another character with a needle because he's having an allergic reaction. The three friends hit and slap each other from time to time. -Sex: One of the bosses sexually harasses her engaged employee. She throws herself at him a lot. She is topless in one scene (no graphic nudity). She tells her employee to have sex with her or she blackmails him with sexual pictures he was unaware of taking (due to him being knocked out by gas). -Language: They use every word in here possible. -Drugs: One of the bosses is addicted to cocaine. In one scene, one of the characters drops the box of cocaine and him and another character breathe it in and get high. Overall, it's a hilarious and raunchy movie. Definitely better than the hangover

Horrible Movie

This movie was raunchy and stupid. A totally tasteless waste. We didn't even think it was funny. It was just really bad.

Hilarious but extremely crude, raunchy and rude.

Although this movie is unbelievably funny, there is tons of rude stuff. The language is in literally every sentence, f--k, s--t, c--k, p---y and so much more. The sex references are extreme, one of the characters sexually harasses another character and says some extremely rude sexual things to him. Keep this movie away from your kids. Believe me, ADULTS ONLY!

This is one of the funniest movies!

This is one of the funniest movies. I don't understand why they gave this movie a not for kids rating, because there is no sex or nudity. It is hilarious, especially the wetworker and M.F. Jones.
