‘Horrible Bosses’ Red-Band Trailer Features Herbie the Love Bug and Rape Jokes

This red-band trailer probably gives away too much. Unlike most red-band trailers, though, it doesn’t giveaway all the best gags. I’ve seen Horrible Bosses, and it’s awesome. What the fellow ensemble summer comedy The Hangover II got wrong, Seth Gordon’s (director behind the incredible The King of King: A Fistful of Quarters) comedy got right. The leads aren’t annoying morons, the jokes feel fresh, and there’s at least some sense of reality.

Watch the Horrible Bosses red-band trailer:

When a film has a joke that references The Accused, you know it’s not playing towards the lowest-common denominator. This isn’t a raunchy comedy, but a clever one.

Horrible Bosses opens in theaters on July 8th.
