Movie Breakdown: Horrible Bosses 2

November 24, 2014


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 Reality:

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.
