She'll bite your head off, but she will look fabulous doing it. Miranda Priestly (Glenn Close) is the textbook definition of an "icy" personality.
In "The Devil Wears Prada," she makes it quite clear that she will not perform any task that is below her overwhelming talent. Nor will she tolerate anyone who disagrees with her.
Encouragement, compliments, sensitivity and thanks will not cross her lips, but she is powerful enough that she can get away with it and still have people want to work for her.
She wants things done, and she wants them done yesterday. If she has to ask twice, people had better be ready to duck and cover.
The question is, will she ask her employees to come in on Sunday like our No. 1 bad movie boss?
No. 1: Bill Lumbergh from "Office Space"
The film "Office Space" is so easy for some people to relate to because it just feels like the typical workplace that so many individuals experience.
Bill Lumbergh (played by Gary Cole) is the textbook definition of a boss who garners absolutely zero respect from his employees. He has a front-row spot in the parking lot, his pay is probably substantial, and he doesn't appear to work terribly hard.
Most of his day is spent leisurely wandering about the office with a cup of coffee. When Lumbergh talks to employees, he displays a terribly boring personality and horrible listening skills.
To top it all off, he even steals precious red staplers every so often. What is the definition of bad boss? He (usually) is the person every employee tries to avoid at all costs.
Nobody fits that description quite like Lumbergh.
