Can "Horrible Bosses" Be the Next "Office Space"?

You watch the trailer and tell me, Sparky...

(Email Subscribers click through for video)

What I like:

-Jason Bateman, Charlie Day (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia) and Jason Sudeikis as the likable losers...

-Jennifer Aniston as the harassing, man-eating boss who harasses Day...

-Kevin Spacey and Colin Farrell as the additional terrible bosses...

-Jamie Foxx as the "murder consultant"... (name in the movie:  Mother[you know what] Jones)...

What I don't like:

-Trailer didn't blow me away... Aren't they supposed to give you the best stuff in the trailer?

To be fair, if you go back and look at the Office Space trailer, I'm not sure we would have picked up on the subtleties that made it the classic that it is.  The hope here is that Bateman and Day do tons of subtle, understated stuff that couldn't possibly be reflected in a trailer and it's a classic.

Opens July 8, 2011....

KD - this looks like the must see summer blockbuster for me.

I don't know man...this trailer looks pretty funny. Admittedly, I laughed out loud a few times. Looks like "Office Space" meets "9 to 5" (remember that old flick with Dabney Coleman, Jane Fonda, Dolly Parton, Lily Tomlin?). This one's definitely on my list.

I'm gonna go watch it again :)

I didn't like Office Space that much because I'm not a big fan of Ron Livingston. I actually like Jason Bateman so I might possibly enjoy this.
