I gotta admit, I’m pretty psyched for “Horrible Bosses” to hit theaters, especially after watching this Red Band trailer (NSFW!). For starters, it’ll be refreshing to see Jennifer Aniston stepping outside of her usual “unlucky in love” rom-com schtick, playing a vicious dentist who sexually harasses adorable Charlie Day. Second, I am excited to see Kevin Spacey play a smarmy a-hole again — he did it so well in “Swimming With Sharks.” Plus, Charlie Day, Jason Bateman, and Jason Sudeikis, while looking a little too alike to tell them apart, make for a delightful trio of unlikely “heroes.” I know foul-mouthed comedy isn’t exactly new, but I’m still amped for this one to open on July 8.

Behold, the new poster for “Horrible Bosses,” the movie where Jason Sudeikis, Jason Bateman and Charlie Day conspire to kill their toxic superiors. Jennifer Aniston plays Charlie’s boss, a sadistic dentist.

In the flick, Jennifer plays a sadistic dentist who tortures her hygienist. In this trailer, she shoots him in the crotch with water and comments on his package size. She also undresses and molests patients while they’re knocked out on happy gas and keeps an iPad slideshow of the photos. Oh, and she fellates a banana. But the director assures us things go even farther in the actual movie. “There’s a whole bunch of things she does that couldn’t be put in this trailer. Stuff you won’t believe,” he says. “It’s really exciting to see [Jennifer] do something a bit further… afield, if you will.” I’m pretty excited for this one. [EW] Keep reading »
