Day's boss Aniston makes sexual advances and threatens to tell his fiancee that they had sex unless he actually has sex with her. Sudeikis boss croaks and his cocaine-addicted son played by Farrell takes over. The three get drunk and plot to kill their bosses by hiring Jamie Foxx, who plays the hitman.
