SKIP: 'HORRIBLE BOSSES 2'
The first Horrible Bosses film, released in 2011, was a left-field box office hit, grossing over $200 million worldwide thanks in large part to its wacky performances by Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey, and Colin Farrell as a trio of asshole overlords. So naturally, the powers that be decided to crank out a sequel. And yes, it’s neutered, lazy, and unnecessary. The trio of tormented pals from the first flick (Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day) once again find themselves being terrorized by a greedy bastard (Christoph Waltz), so they decide to kidnap his son (Chris Pine) and hold him for ransom. Aside from some fun cameos, it really just regurgitates many of the same jokes from the first film, almost all of which fall flat. If it’s a horrible boss you’re after, check out Foxcatcher.
