Horrible Bosses 2 Trailer: Looks Like A Retread

Jason Bateman / Charlie Day / Jason Sudekis / Horrible Bosses 2

The boys are back with the same movie all over again.

Yeah there’s not a lot that looks new here. I laughed only once (the slow motion walk) but that’s not exactly a new joke and I didn’t so much laugh as I did smirk and chortle. What? Chortle is a word. Look it up.

They don’t get a lot (or any) screen time but Christoph Waltz and Chris Pine are in this playing a father and son respectively, and the boys (Jason Bateman, Jason Sudekis, and Charlie Day) kidnap the son to extort the father. Or something. Here’s the synopsis.

Fed up with answering to higher-ups, Nick, Dale and Kurt decide to become their own bosses by launching their own business in “Horrible Bosses 2.” But a slick investor soon pulls the rug out from under them. Outplayed and desperate, and with no legal recourse, the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor’s adult son and ransom him to regain control of their company.

Horrible Bosses 2 is out 26th November.
