Storyline Nick hates his boss, mostly because he's expected to work from before sunrise to after sunset and his boss, Mr. Harken, calls him out for being a minute late and blackmails him so he can't quit. Dale hates his boss, Dr. Julia Harris, because she makes unwelcome sexual advances when he's about to get married. But Dale is on that pesky list of child offenders so he can't quit. Kurt actually likes his job and his boss, well, up until his boss dies and the boss's coked-out, psychopathic son takes over. But who would be crazy enough to quit their jobs in such poor economic times? Instead Nick, Dale and Kurt drunkenly and hypothetically discuss how to kill their bosses, and before they know it, they've hired a murder consultant to help them pull off the three deeds.

Did You Know?
While director Seth Gordon encouraged most actors to improvise their lines in various scenes, Jennifer Aniston stated she did not need to because her lines were "beautifully choreographed".
Errors in geography:
When Harken checks the contact information on Pellitt's phone, it lists Pellitt's address as "Riverside, CA 92595." ZIP code 92595 is assigned to the city of Wildomar, California. Wildomar, while located in Riverside County, is about 40 miles south of the city of Riverside.
I get to work before the sun comes up, and I leave long after it's gone down. I haven't had sex in 6 months with someone other than myself. And the only thing in my refrigerator is a old lime. It could be an old kiwi, no way to tell.
First Rate Comedy
Lots of twists and turns in this surprising comedy. At first you'll
think you know what's going to happen -- but wait, and watch the movie
to the very end, including the credits. Several in this extraordinary
cast (perhaps especially Jennifer Aniston) step outside their "comfort
zone" and display aspects of their personalities and acting skills that
may surprise you. I find it difficult to impossible to say which actor
is "best" only because so many of them are extremely good.
The "R" rating for this movie is for real, and is about the language in
particular (when you have a character whose very name can't be
mentioned in the trailers and reviews you know you're in that
territory). Many qualities of this movie (including the screenplay, the
directing and editing, and the superb original score) had to come
together for it to be as good as it is -- and they do.
