I absolutely loved the first Horrible Bosses. Sure, they definitely mined The Hangover template a little with it’s group of three dysfunctional leads, but it also had an infectious charm, and sharp wit thanks mostly to it’s incredibly talented cast. Now, we have the sequel, and while most comedy franchises definitely falter the second time out, ‘Horrible Bosses 2’ actually looks like it just might top the original.
This time around, our three lovable sociopaths played by Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis take up kidnapping after an investment with two potential partners played by Chris Pine, and Christoph Waltz (as father and son…you figure that one out) screw them over. Not only is this premise enough of a departure from the original to keep things fun, but the chemistry between all of the actors has not even remotely step out of line. Just in this trailer alone, there are 2-3 fact paced interactions of hyper-speed banter that are just uproarious. I can’t say for certain yet if it’ll be good, but now I’m certainly not worried.
