For Nick, Kurt and Dale, the only thing that would make the daily grind more tolerable would be to grind their intolerable bosses into dust. Quitting is not an option, so, with the benefit of a few-too-many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con, the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers...permanently. There's only one problem: even the best laid plans are only as foolproof as the brains behind them. Produced by Jay Stern.

If the film works at all - and it mostly does - it's because of Bateman's performance (speaking of sympathetic: he could have played Patrick Bateman and made him seem adorable).Simon Miraudo, Quickflix, 08.22.2011
As far-fetched and filthy-minded as the film often gets, there is a subversive universal appeal in play that keeps lingering doubts at bay.Leigh Paatsch, Herald Sun (Australia), 08.25.2011
