Horrible Bosses

Comparison:

  • Theatrical Version
  • Unrated Version
Release: Oct 19, 2011 - Author: Mike Lowrey - Translator: Sebbe - external link: IMDB
Horrible Bosses could quite easily make profit due to its very popular actors and rather small budget (just 37 million dollars)...and so it did, with an impressive worldwide box-office gross of about 210 million dollars. Although the story gets a little bit weaker in the second half it still is one of the better comedies of 2011.

The R-Rating given by the MPAA (for crude and sexual content, pervasive language and some drug material) indicates that the movie mostly contains some verbal obscenities. The Unrated Version, called Totally Inappropriate Edition in the USA and just available on Blu-ray there while the DVD only contains the Theatrical Version, isn't that much more coarse as one would expect it to be. It's more like a regular Extended Version. There's much more talking going on in the additional scenes which is mostly amusing but the Theatrical Version doesn't appear worse by lacking these scenes.

Compared are the Theatrical Version (FSK 16 / R-Rated) (contained on the US DVD by Warner Home Video) and the Unrated Version (contained on the US Blu-ray by Warner Home Video).

Extended Scene
0:15:52: Bobby shows clearer in the Unrated that he's a boss who really cares about his employees.

Kurt: "Well, he doesn't work here anymore because he had a horrible accident in our warehouse. All right? The guy burned off half his face."
Bobby: "Exactly. I don't want my money going to support monsters."

Bobby: "Cut him off. Second."
20,72 Sec.



Extended Scene with Alternative Footage
0:16:21: Also in terms of environmental protection he turns out to be a real moralist. This is slightly longer in the Unrated.

Theatrical Version:
Bobby: "Bolivians said they do it for a third of the price. I'm gonna hire them."
Kurt: "No...no, you can't go to them."
Bobby: "Why?"
Kurt: "You shouldn't do it because they're gonna endanger thousands of local residents."

Unrated:
Bobby: "Yeah, fuck that. Guess what, the Bolivians are gonna do it for a third of the price. I'm gonna hire them."

Extended Scene
0:18:01: The first bigger extension in the Unrated Version contains at first a longer intermezzo between Bobby and Kurt in his office and then a new scene, in which Bobby's already bad image gets even worse.


Bobby: "Your call. I think I know who you're gonna fire. And tell him to leave his handicap parking pass when he leaves." (the last sentence can also be heard off-screen in the Theatrical Version)
Kurt: "You can't take that. It's issued by the state, Bobby."
Bobby: "Well, this is... You're looking at the state. The State of Bobbyville. Okay? Deal with it."
Kurt: "That would be a town, Bobby."
Bobby: "United States of me."
Kurt: "Okay, there we go."
Bobby: "It's all here."

After Kurt has left Bobby's office he unwillingly walks over to Hank in the wheelchair to fire him. Bobby watches that and makes a scene about how heartless Kurt is, firing somebody on the day of the funeral of Bobby's father. Of course Kurt is the idiot now and Bobby's happy about that.

Kurt: "Hey, Hank, how you doing, man?"
Hank: "Good, what's up?"
Kurt: "Um... we're going through a real tough time...financially...and... We're gonna have to let you go. I'm sorry."

Bobby: "Shit. Everyone. Uh, can I have your attention, please? I have an announcement to make. I've just learned that Kurt has fired our dear friend Hank here. I just want you all to know that I am as shocked and angered as you all are."
Kurt: "What are you doing?"
Bobby: "Please. Enough out of you already today. My dad... on the day of his funeral. This is an accounting department decision. My hands are tied. I'm sorry. You are one cold, heartless bastard, Buckman."

Kurt: "Hank, this wasn't my idea."
Hank: "Fuck you, Kurt."

Dale: "Maybe don't quit your job."

Unrated:
Nick: "What is it?"
Dale: "Huh?"
Kenny: "40 bucks apiece. We'll do it right here in the bathroom. All right, fuck it, you know what? You guys are driving a hard bargain. Since I know you, I'll let you stare into my eyes, I'll do the three of you for a hundred."
Kurt: "Kenny, are you gay now?"
Kenny: "No, I'm not gay!"
Dale: "You just do gay stuff."
Kenny: "Guys, I'm the opposite of gay. Now, come on. What do you say? Handies for the Three Musketeers. Come on. You know what? I'll hit the three of you at the same time. Dale, I'm gonna deal with you right here behind my knee. Nobody's doing that right now, you're gonna love it. And you two cats, I'm gonna rock you. Nordic style. You know what they're saying right now? They're saying my hands are rated four stars. Four stars wrapped around your stick, pop the thumb, nick the top. Nick the top, nick the top, nickt the top, pecker spit."
Nick: "You been drinking all day, Kenny?"
Kenny: "Look at me. I know what I'm doing down there. Nobody will ever know."
Barkeeper: "Hey, hey! Come on, man. I thought I told you to stay out of here."
Kenny: "All right, I gotta go. But listen, if you guys change your mind.. I'm staying at my mom's house. And for an extra hundred, I'll let you guys pool your mayonnaise right here in my bellybutton. You'll love it. Think about it. Ugh, ugh! Yes! I'll be at my mom's."

Dale: "No. No. Cool name. Is that, like, on your birth certificate, too?"
MF Jones: "No, goofball. My real name is Dean."

Unrated:
Dale: "Your first name is 'Motherfucker'?'"
MF Jones: "Not Motherfucker. Motherfuckah. White people say 'er'. Negroes say 'fuckah'."
Dale: "Got it."
MF Jones: "You say E-R. I say A-H."

0:41:20: When MF Jones tells the guys who he came to his name the Theatrical Version just shows him. In the Unrated there are some flashbacks of how he steals the money from his mother in her bedroom, she wakes up and calls him this way. So therefore the scene is longer in the Unrated.

MF Jones: "I can't run around this fucking neighborhood with that Disney-ass name."
Nick: "How did you get the nickname Motherfucker?"
MF Jones: "When I was a kid, I snuck into my mother's bedroom."

MF Jones: "She was laying there naked."
Kurt: "Dean..."
MF Jones: "She had been drinking all night."
Nick: "We get it."

MF Jones: "She was sleeping on the bed. She had been drinking all night."
Nick: "I've heard enough."
MF Jones: "Her skin was glistening. And I snuck up behind her. And I slipped my fingers into her purse."
Kurt: "Purse. He said purse."

Extended Scene with Alternative Footage
0:49:31: A parade example for an Unrated extension. When Dale, Kurt and Nick are sitting in the car there's a lot of small talk going on. Nick complains about Dale's breath, Dale complains about the bad view and Kurt covers his face with his hands, which is another thing to talk about. The Theatrical Version is shorter and actually this scene doesn't need more.

Dale: "I'm fucking pumped."

Unrated:
Nick: "Fire that the other way next time, okay?"
Dale: "Is my breath bad?"

Kurt: "Where'd you get a falafel?"
Dale: "Mickey's."
Kurt: "Mickey's has falafels?"
Dale: "Mm-hm."
Kurt: "No kidding."
Nick: "Why don't you lean back?"
Dale: "Because he parked right in front of a tree. If I lean back, I can't see the house over there."
Nick: "Stop exasperating on me, or watch your H's. Through the nose stinks, too, okay?"
Dale: "I hate that angle."
Nick: "We should probably get lower. If he sees three guys..."
Dale: "Slouch down a little."
Nick: "I'm gonna get back."
Dale: "You're gonna back your seat up?"
Nick: "Yeah. If you get in your seat I can back my seat up."
Dale: "I don't really have a good angle from here because there's that tree."
Nick: "You got a whole window to look through."
Dale: "I'm coming up."
Nick: "Come on, lean back."
Dale: "I like the tree men thing."
Nick: "What are you doing, Kurt? What's going on?"
Dale: "He's fucking around, man."
Nick: "Creating a finger web in front of your face. Is that...? Is that like a camouflage?"
Dale: "It is his boss. I mean, he's the one who's going to get recognized."
Kurt: "Finger-flage. It's called finger-flage."
Dale: "Finger-flage. This is actually a pretty damn good idea, dude."
Nick: "Just roll up your window. Please, I can't... I can't..."
Dale: "Do the finger-flage."
Nick: "Let's not have jokes for two hours. This is serious business."
Dale: "This is fun."

Dale: "Yeah, we should probably look, right?"

Unrated:
Kurt: "Oh my God. I cannot believe how much this sucks."
Dale: "I don't get it, man. On TV, surveillance always looks fun, right? You know, the cops, they got the sunflower seeds and the coffee. Talk about their lives and shit. And then... You know, right, when someone reveals something really intimate, the perp appears. They spring into action."

Extended Scene
1:15:53: When the trio makes bird sounds in the police car Kurt barks one more time, Dale says : "Well, don't bark."

After that a new scene in the waiting area of the police station follows. They address reproaches to each other and the other waiting detainees watch that with a mixture of irritation and indifference until the trio gets called to the interrogation room.

Dale: "You know we're dead, right?"
Kurt: "Why?"
Dale: "Because they know everything. Cops are smart."
Nick: "You realize we can't even mention Harken now?"
Kurt: "Yeah, I know."
Dale: "Shit, dude."
Kurt: "Wait, why?"
Nick: "It was supposed to be an anonymous tip, Kurt."
Kurt: "Yeah, so?"
Nick: "Come on, man. Should I just tell them the only reason I know about Harken is... So should I just say the only reason I know about Harken is because I was parked in front of your dead boss's house with a box of rat poison?"
Kurt: "No, that's true. You were at the scene of the crime. It was bad then."
Dale: "You kinda fled the scene of a crime."
Kurt: "Yeah, that's true."
Dale: "That's actually a crime in itself."
Kurt: "That's really, really bad. You shouldn't have done that. I'm the one person that hasn't done anything."
Dale: "Well, you broke into two people's houses."
Kurt: "So you broke into a house."
Dale: "I followed you into a house after you broke into the house. You stole a Blackberry."
Kurt: "You did cocaine."
Dale: "I accidentally inhaled some cocaine. That's not doing cocaine."
Kurt: "Gimme a break. What are you gonna do, rat me out?"
Dale: "Maybe I will rat you out, motherfucker. What do you think about that?"
Nick: "You gonna rat me out, too?"
Dale: "I bet I could. You stole a Blackberry, you fled a crime. You raped my boss."
Kurt: "I did not rape her."
Nick: "I'll climb over this son of a bitch and kick your fucking ass."
Dale: "Wanna see what happens?"
Det. Hagan: "Hey! Gentlemen. Gentlemen! Right this way."
