Storyline

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 SantaClaus

Trivia

The fact that Dale is constantly accused of being racist is possibly a reference to the first film, where he's constantly accused of being a child molester. See more »

Goofs

The Twitter hashtag #We'reNotRacist is all blue. But Twitter doesn't recognize apostrophes in hashtags, so all the characters after the first "e" should be black. See more »

Quotes

Nick Hendricks: We're not going to see Mother-Fucker Jones because we're not going to kidnap anyone.

Its a slapstick comedy
12 December 2014 | by paulwattrileySee all my reviews

For heavens sake it is a slapstick comedy and contains enough funny scenes to achieve its purpose.

Cant imagine what some people expect and the people that say they didn't laugh until the end credits well I actually feel sorry for you. It must be depressing to be unable to laugh at childish adult humour.

I personally found the film enjoyable but I must admit I am a big child at heart and see comedy films as they as supposed to be.

Is this is greatest film of the year NO but it is far from being the worst film of the year.

I will most likely watch this again with my nephew who has the same sense of humour as myself and sure he will love the film.
