After working for terrible supervisors, Nick, Dale, and Kurt have decided to become their own bosses, launching their own shower-head business in an attempt to financially support themselves. Just when they think they've met an investor who could bring their dream to the next level, they are sabotaged, left with little time to save their business. Desperate and outmatched, the trio hatch a plan to kidnap the investor's 20-something son, holding him for ransom in an effort to regain control of their company. Sean Ander's Horrible Bosses 2 has nothing to do with horrible bosses but it is still an enjoyable comedy that lives and dies with the chemistry between Jason Sudekis, Jason Bateman, and Charlie Day. Unfairly criticized due to its concept not living up to its name, Horrible Bosses 2 is a clever sequel that changes up the formula enough to feel fresh, entertaining, and fun. A surprisingly well-written film, Horrible Bosses 2 matches its predeccesor, arguably topping it, due to its clever dialogue and ability to trust its three stars chemistry to create an enjoyable experience. Not groundbreaking by any means, Sean Anders' Horrible Bosses 2 is a clever, original sequel that features a really enjoyable performance by Chris Pine, simultaneously understanding the importance of unleashing its three stars.
