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.
When their new next-door neighbors turn out to be a sorority even more debaucherous than the fraternity previously living there, Mac and Kelly team with their former enemy, Teddy, to bring the girls down.
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.Written by
I really didn't know what I was getting into when I saw this movie. We all know how it goes with sequels. It's either good or terrible. It can be a win/lose situation when it comes to sequels. I was hoping it was going to be another Hangover, but I was happy when I was proved wrong.
Horrible Bosses starts back up again with Nick (Bateman), Kurt (Sudeikis) and Dale (Day) with their new invention: the Shower Buddy. They are trying to make their way into the working world again, but they are now they're own bosses. They don't have to deal with the bull they dealt with their former bosses.
They thought they were getting a good deal with Burt Hanson (Christoph Waltz), an investor to start up their business, only to get sucker-punched and lost everything to Hanson. They have no other options to get back the patent to their invention but to kidnap Hanson's son Rex (Chris Pine) for a handsome fee.
With Rex in on the kidnapping, they think they have a solid plan, but of course, things turn upside down and once again Nick, Kurt and Dale are on their own to make things right again before they end up behind bars.
The cast was amazing as always, and Jennifer Aniston returning as Julia, Dale's former boss was hilarious as always. I like to see her in roles like this because she carries comedy very well. Pine was great as well, playing the undermining, crazy, spoiled brat Rex Hanson.
This film truly held its own as a sequel. They didn't do much of outrageous situations for laughs. It was just right. It was just as funny as the first one, if not funnier. I was really surprised because I know how I can be when it comes to sequels. My mother even enjoyed herself with this film, and it takes a lot to keep her interests.
I would see this again because 1. I liked it and 2. I saw it at a screening and missed a few things, but I wouldn't seeing it again, even if I didn't miss a thing.
