30 horrible bosses

As Jennifer Aniston's character in new film Horrible Bosses (out 22 July) proves, even the most demanding employer pales in comparison to the evil bosses from the big screen. Faking a sex video of your assistant to bribe them with? All in a day's work for Dr Julia.

But there are even worse bosses to be found in film history. From boardroom bullies to evil Alpha females, we've rounded up the worst movie bosses ever and their nastiest put-downs. So the next time your boss orders you to fetch their dry cleaning/the finance report/third latte of the day, just count your blessings you don't work for any of these workplace nightmares...
