Review: Horrible Bosses 2 (2014)

There’s not a whole lot you can expect walking into a film titled Horrible Bosses 2. Having seen the first film, and found it decently funny, I had my expectations set from the get-go. It’s based on this fact that I was able to enjoy this film. It doesn’t do anything new, or anything special, and uses the same great chemistry of its three leads (Bateman, Day, and Sedekis) as the main source of jokes (as well as an unexpectedly manic turn by Chris Pine), and it works to a point. The conventional can only get so conventional before it becomes boring and trite. Some scenes had me rolling with laughter, while others had me rolling my eyes. The fact of the matter is, if you go into Horrible Bosses 2 expecting comedic genius, you will be disappointed. Use the film as an excuse to laugh along with friends for two hours instead.

My Rating:

2.5/4
