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.
