Three buddies wake up from a bachelor party in Las Vegas, with no memory of the previous night and the bachelor missing. They make their way around the city in order to find their friend before his wedding.
Two struggling pals dress as police officers for a costume party and become neighborhood sensations. But when these newly-minted "heroes" get tangled in a real life web of mobsters and dirty detectives, they must put their fake badges on the line.
Fed up with answering to higher-ups, Nick, Dale and Kurt decide to become their own bosses by launching their own business. But a slick investor soon pulls the rug out from under them. Outplayed and desperate, and with no legal recourse, the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor's adult son and ransom him to regain control of their company.

I thought the first Horrible Bosses was just tedious despite the cast and the promising premise. However, people loved it and it made enough money to guarantee an unnecessary sequel which this movie definitely is. Horrible Bosses 2 is a simple cashgrab that repeats the same schtick as the original, but with even worse results despite once again having a good cast.
Good: I like the cast involved and especially Chris Pine who is thankfully showing off his funnier side with his recent movies.
Bad: The comedy here was obviously a lot of improvisation between Day, Sudeikis, and Bateman and it doesn't work. It is just a lot of talking over each other and being loud. It is grating to watch and the fact that it continues throughout the movie gets annoying quick. The jokes all fall flat and more misuse of Kevin Spacey and Christoph Waltz.
Overall, it is just an unfunny sequel that goes for more of the same with ten times the annoyance.
