Horrible Bosses script
Synopsis: Three friends conspire to murder their awful bosses when they realize they are standing in the way of their happiness.

FADE IN:

1 INT. NICK'S APARTMENT - LATE NIGHT 1

Looking incredibly weary, NICK WATERS, 30's, enters his

apartment in his business suit. He stumbles into --

2 INT. NICK'S BEDROOM - CONTINUOUS ACTION 2

He drops his briefcase, strips off his jacket, loosens

his tie and collapses onto the bed like a dead man. PAN

OVER TO the alarm clock which reads "1:23 AM."

MATCH CUT TO:

3 INT. NICK'S BEDROOM - EARLY MORNING 3

The alarm clock now reads "4:59 AM." It switches to

"5:
00" and a BLARING BUZZER goes off. Nick sits up in

bed, shuts off the buzzer and painfully forces himself

out of bed. He hurries out of the bedroom, passing the

saddest, deadest houseplant in history.

4 INT. NICK'S KITCHEN - MOMENTS LATER 4

Nick opens his fridge to reveal a wasteland of moldy

leftover containers and crusty condiments. The orange

juice container he grabs is empty.

NICK:

Damn.

He opens the freezer. It contains nothing but multiple

boxes of "Jimmy Dean's Breakfast Bowl -- with Bacon!" He

pops one in the microwave, then glances over at a framed

photo of a slightly younger Nick kissing a smiling OLD

WOMAN on the cheek. The frame reads: "I Y Grandma!"

Nick sighs sadly.

5 INT. NICK'S BATHROOM - MINUTES LATER 5

Nick sits on the toilet eating his breakfast bowl with a

fork. He takes some toilet paper from the roll and wipes

his mouth with it.

6 INT. NICK'S SHOWER - MOMENTS LATER 6

Nick showers while simultaneously brushing his teeth and

shaving. He loses track and brushes his face with the

toothbrush.

2.

7 INT. NICK'S BEDROOM - MOMENTS LATER 7

Nick hastily grabs work clothes from his messy drawers

and closet. Clearly, no laundry has been done in a

while.

8 INT. NICK'S APARTMENT ELEVATOR - MOMENTS LATER 8

Nick hurriedly buttons his shirt, tucks it in and begins

tying his tie as the elevator reaches the lobby.

9 INT. NICK'S CAR - SHORT TIME LATER 9

As he drives to work, he dials a number and transfers it

to speakerphone.

JENNA (V.O.)

(GROGGY)

Hello?

NICK:

(CHEERY)

Hey, Jenna, it's Nick.
