What a riot! Much like The Hangover 2, Horrible Bosses 2 picks up where Horrible Bossesleft off and does it well.
Nick, Kurt and Charlie have turned their backs on their aspirations of becoming master, murderous criminals, have gone out on their own with a great gadget invention and are ready for their very first big business deal. As the saying goes, “the best laid plans of mice and men, often go awry”, and when I say awry I mean spin out of control at full speed, in turbo!
Without giving anything away, the deal doesn’t quite work out, their thoughts turn to crime,Jamie Foxx’s Dean “MF” Jones steps in, with his usual terrible advice and the next thing,Chris Pine is punching himself in the face, Kevin Spacey is screaming insults, Christof Waltz is levelling equally venomous insults but in a creepy, soft voice and Jennifer Anistonis not recovering from her sex addiction very well – in fact, she may be the worst student of any 12-step programme ever, and its hilarious!
The three hapless protagonists manage to hire an assortment of people who neither know what they’re doing nor speak English, but they are hot, so everything should be okay! Their revenge plot, as designed by MF, is the worst plot ever but they are prepared to admit they’re possibly criminals at heart (and therefore, of course, have to do the slo-mo walk!)
If you liked the first Horrible Bosses, you’ll like Horrible Bosses 2 – it’s laugh out loud funny, with some very funny movie parodies and myth debunks. The double crosses are ridiculous, in classic comedy style, and the cameo by uber cop actor Jonathan Banks is fantastic!
I’m innately cautious when it comes to sequels, especially when I’ve enjoyed the original as much as I did Horrible Bosses but Horrible Bosses 2 doesn’t disappoint.
Rent this movie if you are in the mood for a good laugh, with a bit of naughty and a whole lot of cheeky!
Horrible Bosses 2 is available on PVR until 06 April 2015 and online until 04 August 2015.
