Horrible Bosses (2011)
Despite the fact that the concept of Horrible Bosses may appear absurd, it is quite relatable to many people, which is likely why it was so financially and critically successful. The story follows three friends (Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis) who are fed up with their tyrannical bosses (Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston, and Colin Farrell) and decide to assassinate them.
Step Brothers (2008)

In 1977 Los Angeles, a private eye (Ryan Gosling) and an enforcer (Russel Crowe) must team up to investigate the disappearance of a teenage girl (Margaret Qualley).
