Nick, Kurt, and Dale have ditched their old jobs to go into business for themselves. With a product ready for distribution, they think they have it made for a while until their buyer double crosses them. With their business on the edge of oblivion, and no options available, they decide to kidnap the wealthy buyer’s son, and hold him for ransom. Can these three stooges manage to pull it off, or will they lose everything?
I was a huge fan of the first movie, and found it hilarious from start to finish. Horrible Bosses 2 still provided laughs, but not as much as its predecessor. The story isn’t as great as I had hoped, but you can’t expect too much considering that the filmmaker’s goal is to amuse rather than to captivate. Throughout the movie, I wondered “How stupid are these guys?”, and you will probably wonder the same thing at some point through the movie. While I am a fan of comedic films, I found Horrible Bosses 2 to be kind of dull at certain points in the movie mostly because the story was kind of boring. It wasn’t a horrible movie, but it wasn’t amazing either. It was funny, but not worth the ticket price in my opinion.
BOBCAT RECOMMENDATION: Horrible Bosses 2 wasn’t as good as the first film, but it was still a funny movie. Despite the story being less than great, the movie still manages to get a chuckle out of you. It’s a buddy flick for sure, so I would recommend seeing it in theaters with your ‘bros’. I wouldn’t recommend or dissuade anyone from seeing this movie in theaters just because most would either love it or hate it, and that depends on the person. If someone asked me what I thought of the film I would respond with, “Eh, it was alright. Some parts were funny”. Take that how you may, and decide for yourself if you want to see it right away or to wait.
