Horrible Bosses 2

The team from Horrible Bosses returns in yet another very politically incorrect comedy about a trio of men (led by Jason Bateman) and their attempts to deal with the people that determine their fate in this world. Only that this time it’s not really their bosses, but rather the person (Christoph Waltz) who said he was going to pay for their wonderful invention but wouldn’t once they actually spent all the money they borrowed on it. So what does one do ahead of impending bankruptcy?
Following the advice of their always useless advisor on matters of crime (Jamie Foxx), they have a go at kidnapping the guy’s asshole of a son (Chris Pine). Between the police (in the shape of Jonathan Banks), an old boss with a craving (Jennifer Aniston), and an old boss now doing time (Kevin Spacey), there are plenty of laughs about. And I mean it: on a couple of occasions I had bursts of uncontrollable laughter of unprecedented magnitude.
When the dust settled, though, Horrible Bosses 2 is just another one of those silly American “bro” comedies. It’s not bad, it’s fun/funny, but it is also silly and forgettable. 3 out of 5 crabs.
