Horrible Bosses 2 Review - 2 Stars

Well, I’ll admit it: I laughed.  But I also felt my jaw dropping to the floor a couple of times as Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day riffed their way through some of the coarsest dialogue in a movie this year.   If you saw the original, you remember that the threesome vowed vengeance on their terrible bosses including Kevin Spacey (who makes a cameo from prison this time) and Jennifer Aniston – a sex addict who won’t take no from happily married Charlie Day.  Now they return with an idea to start their own business, only to have it stolen from them by greedy industrialist Chrisoph Waltz and his playboy son Chris Pine.  Thus proving a new revenge plot.  Jamie Foxx returns to make fun of the boys and the help in the nick of time.  I could go on but why bother.  “Horrible Bosses 2″ hopes to make a lot of money on the back of the funnier original.   If you need an easy laugh maybe this will suffice.  Does it deliver what it promises?  More”Horrible Bosses.”   Is it entertaining?  I laughed sometimes.  Is it worth the price of admission?  Easy laughs but don’t expect anything great or new or creative.
