    Review: 'Horrible Bosses' Is A Middling, Generic Comedy That Murders Its Own Potential

    A dark comedies, even a generic, mass-marketed studio confection like this week's "Horrible Bosses," offers the promise of, if not laughs then, at the very least, a kind of dangerous edginess that sets it apart from the bland and safe "Hall Pass"es of the world.
