Did you know?
To promote this film, Warner Bros. Pictures Canada set up a 12-foot Voodoo doll resembling a corporate boss in downtown Montreal. People were given the chance to vent their office frustrations on the doll by stabbing and hitting it with large needles. They were also encouraged to share their best/worst boss story for the chance of winning passes to an advance screening of the film.

Kurt is the only one out of the three main characters to come in contact with the three targeted bosses. Kurt works for Bobby Pellitt, has sexual intercourse with Dr. Julia Harris (Kurt is never seen interacting with her, just Julia opening her front door to invite Kurt into her home for sex) and is held at gunpoint, along with Nick and Dale, by Dave Harken. Nick works for Harken, he never interacts with Pellitt (though he does witness Harken murdering Pellitt), and is never seen with Julia. Dale works for Julia, is held at gunpoint by Harken, but never interacts with Pellitt. Additionally, he has interactions with Harken when Harken gets angry with him for littering, after which Dale saves his life (he didn't know it was Harken) when he almost dies because of a peanut allergy.

Detectives would never question three murder suspects together. They would be interviewed individually to see if their stories are consistent.

Do they actually kill their bosses?
No, the characters themselves do not kill their bosses. Harken (Kevin Spacey) kills Pellit (Colin Farrel) after Kurt (Jason Sudeikas) accidentally drops Pellit's stolen phone in Harken's house and Harken jumps to conclusion that Pellit is sleeping with Harken's wife. Later, the three trick Harken into confessing to the murder, and he is arrested. As for Dale's (Charlie Day) boss Julia (Jennifer Aniston), he is able to frame her seducing an "unconscious" patient (which "Motherfucker" Jones records) and uses it to blackmail her to pay for his honeymoon and stop sexually harassing him.
What are the differences between the Theatrical Version and the Extended Version?
The Extended Version, which is only available on Blu-ray in the States, features a cut that is nearly 8 minutes longer than the well-known Theatrical Version. These prolonged scenes mostly consist of additional dialogue and extensions of already existing scenes. Sometimes alternative footage was used and completely new scenes are rarely seen. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
