Kurt Loder Reviews Horrible Bosses 2

|

Horrible Bosses
Warner Bros

The original Horrible Bosses, released in 2011, grossed more than $200-million worldwide. Because of this—and only because of this, I'd guess—we now have Horrible Bosses 2. The first film, lit up by the comic chemistry of Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day, was very funny. It had a tight, lightweight script and prime support by Kevin Spacey and (especially) Jennifer Aniston as two of the awful bosses. They're all back for the sequel, and they're all fine—or as fine as the rickety script will allow them to be. But the premise is already played out, and the scattershot fun is strained.
