It’s the age-old argument of, “was it better than the first?” Many people don’t believe “the sequel” can ever match the pure genius and creativity of its origin. American Pie, Hangover, Scary Movie, and many others have had fans constantly revert back to the original movie as the best make in the series. Then there was Horrible Bosses 2. This movie will spark the same argument amongst viewers, and in my opinion, it’s equally as funny as the original.
Nick, Kurt, and Dale (Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikas, and Charlie Day) are back together again, but this time, as entrepreneurs. Things were looking up for the guys and their new invention until a slithering investor named Bert Hanson (Christoph Waltz) took advantage of them. Along with the help of Bert’s son Rex (Chris Pine), the group devise a plan to get their money back plus some.
This comedy is a lot of what you saw in the first movie with fresh bits from Chris Pine and Christoph Waltz. Jennifer Aniston is still a great fit in her recent roles as an antagonist and there are a few moments you get to share again with Kevin Spacey.
This movie is sure to make you laugh and it can still be enjoyed without seeing the first. Horrible Bosses 2 gets a 9 out of 10. The movie isn’t long and its full of laughs from beginning to end. A great film to see during the weekend.
