|Nick (Bateman) is the voice of reason, Kurt (Sudeikis) believes he's the brains behind the operation, while Dale (Day) is that crazy friend you want to trust, you want to believe isn't always going to do the exact opposite of what he should, but who constantly acts with a complete disregard for logic. The three buddies believe their bosses deserve to die and, as we get to know these guys, we completely sympathize with what they're going through and don't dislike them for wanting to take the drastic step of offing their bosses.
||尼克（杰森•贝特曼 饰）代表着理性的声音；库尔特（杰森•苏戴奇斯 饰）自认为是公司运作的中枢人物；而戴尔（查理•戴 饰）是那种虽然有点疯狂却又总能得到信任的朋友，他的行为不会每次都糟到极点，但常常毫无逻辑可言。这三个好朋友都认为自己的老板罪该万死，而当你渐渐地了解了这些人，你会觉得他们的遭遇十分令人同情，想采取极端手段干掉自己的老板也无可厚非。
|First up is Nick whose horrible boss is Dave Harken (Spacey), a micromanaging jerk. Dave's the sort of boss who turns the tiniest infraction into a cause for termination, who accuses stand-up employee Nick of being an alcoholic after pouring him a stiff drink at 8:15am and forcing him to chug it down. Dave dangled a promotion over Nick's head, made him work weekends, miss his grandmother's funeral, and then after leading him on for months he awarded himself the promotion. Nick can't quit because Dave's threatened to call any potential employers and lie about Nick's job performance. The bottom line: Nick's ready to make Dave pay.
|Kurt's his boss' favorite employee, a fact which angers the boss' cokehead son. Bobby Pellit (Farrell) loves martial arts, loose women, his comb-over, and drugs -- not necessarily in that order. He hates everything to do with his dad's company, except the money it makes that allows him to stay well-stocked with cocaine. When circumstances change and Bobby becomes the head of the company, life at work becomes sheer hell. The bottom line: Kurt is also ready to take action and get rid of his boss.
|And Dale...well, his friends tease him about his relationship with his boss, the sexually aggressive, hot and nasty dentist, Dr. Julia Harris (Aniston). Julia hooks her patients up to gas and then spends the minutes/hours while they're knocked out hitting on Dale, touching him inappropriately and threatening to show his fiancee incriminating photos if he doesn't have sex with her. She's a beast, a dentist who loves 'drilling', and she's got an insatiable appetite for sex. And because Dale made a major mistake by peeing outdoors in a park, he's been tagged with the sexual predator label and can't get another job. The bottom line: Dale wants Julia dead and gone.
|But actually doing the deed is more difficult than just talking the talk. In search of a hit-man, the trio travel to a bar and meet Dean 'MF' Jones (Jamie Foxx). He's fresh out of jail and for $5000 he'll get rid of the horrible bosses -- or so the guys believe. But it turns out all he's willing to do is be their murder consultant, so once again the actual task of killing their bosses is back in their hands. To do the job they'll need to research, plan, prepare, and execute the perfect untraceable murders. But the question remains: when it comes right down to it, can they actually go through with it?
