Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston and Colin Farrell play evil executive who torment their employees in "Horrible Bosses," which opens July 8. We asked you to share the most memorable bad bosses of TV and moviedom, and from recent flicks to reruns, you came up with a great variety. How exactly does Darth Vader give a performance review, anyway?
Baby, you can drive my car
"Louie Danny DeVito from ('Taxi') The monster in the cage." --Jeffrey, Ark.
What a way to make a living
"Mr. Franklin Hart — that sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot from the movie, '9 to 5.'" --Betty, Calif.
From the future
"Mr. Spacely from the Jetsons cartoon. He seemed like a pretty mean guy." --Craig, Conn.
TPS Report time
"No question it's Bill Lumberg from 'Office Space.' Mmmmm....yeaaahhh...thx." --Chris, Ore.
I am your father
"Darth Vader! You know the saying "if looks could kill" well it is not a saying with Mr Vader." --Kris
"Hands down, Montgomery Burns on 'The Simpsons' has to be the worst. He has demonstrated homicidal tendencies, hatching plans that could result in the deaths of all the citizens of Springfield, has blatant disdain for all of his employees and their safety, pollutes the environment to the point of deformed fish in the nearby waterways, and employees Homer Simpson, of all people, as a safety technician. I don't think you can get much worse than that." --Carlton, NY
Junk store blues
"Sanford (of) 'Sanford & Son' would sell Lamont if there was an offer! Having a cheapo, scheming dad as a boss must have been rough...But he stayed ...hmmm, maybe that's why he always called Lamont 'Big Dummy!'" --Ali
The devil is my boss
"Miranda Priestly in 'The Devil Wears Prada' so fabulously portrayed by Meryl Streep. The constant once-over of what I'm wearing, the condescending tone and no boundaries of job responsibilities. All of it gives me chills just imagining having to endure that type of treatment." --Monique, Pa.
"Buddy Ackerman from 'Swimming with Sharks.' With a boss so bad as Buddy, you can understand why his assistant felt the need to abduct him and subject him to cruel tortures for the abuse endured at Buddy's hands." --Andrew, Ore.
Dan Hedaya as Mr. Waturi in 'Joe vs. The Volcano.' Tom Hanks' character is stuck working in a stifling, mundane environment, and Mr. Waturi is one of those bosses who make all the little details seem vitally important because he can't understand or control anything beyond that. He's a bully who uses his power to push people around and degrade them. (Unfortunately, I have worked for too many people like him) His ineptitude is apparent in the ridiculous telephone conversations he has where he repeats the same things over and over. "I'm not arguing that with you. I'm not arguing that with you. I know he can GET the job but can he DO the job? I KNOW he can get the job, but can he DO the job? I'm not arguing that with you." --Una, Maine
"Larry Tate! Darren always got pulled in at the last minute to save the day and got none of the credit. Samantha should have turned him into the toad that he was." --Michael, San Diego
"Old Man Potter in 'It's a Wonderful Life.'" --Alison
"Ebenezer Scrooge in 'A Christmas Carol.'" --Patricia, Ohio
