People are doing traditional-style reviews all over the web, so we decided to try something different. In each “breakdown” we’ll take a look at what a film’s marketing led us to believe, how the movie actually played, and then what we learned from it all. Read on!
The mildly funny Horrible Bosses gets a sequel! Wait. What? Why?
Even with the terrible Dumb And Dumber 2 and the truly awful Sin City 2 up for consideration, I think the clear-cut winner of 2014′s “most unnecessary sequel” award is Horrible Bosses 2. I mean, it’s not as though the first film is a classic or something, so who the hell requested a second entry, and how do I thank them? Oh yes. That’s right. I actually want to thank them. Because despite being loaded with nothing but crude, insensitive, classless and stupid jokes, it totally cracked my shit right up. Everyone involved is clearly having a ton of fun, and there’s a loose, infectious energy constantly present throughout the movie that’s difficult to not get caught up in. I can’t say it’s for everyone (especially if you prefer “smart” comedies), but if you’re down for a good ridiculous laugh or 20, then don’t hesitate to seek out Horrible Bosses 2.
Second time’s the charm.
