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.
