‘Horrible Bosses’ sequel raunchy in all the right ways
I’ve never been much for comedies. They just don’t do it for me. Give me a horror/sci-fi flick any day of the week. But if I’m going to endure tasteless jokes, juvenile antics and outrageous premises, I want the most tasteless, the most juvenile and the most outrageous there is; no sugarcoating, no holding back. Which is exactly what you’ll get with “Horrible Bosses 2.”
The sequel to the popular “Horrible Bosses” doesn’t just do humor. It runs wild with every perceived notion you’ve ever held about a comedy. You want a bad guy? How about Christoph Waltz showing the empathy of Scrooge and with a heart so black Maleficent would blush. (The original one, not the kneecapped newer version.) You want clueless protagonists who somehow always manage to land on their feet (even if they fell much, much further first)? Throw in Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day. You really can’t get much better than that. You want your obligatory squirm-inducing sex scenes? Just add a sex-crazed, boundary-free Jennifer Aniston.
Bascially, “HB2” works its butt off to be as cynical and disdaining as possible at its own expense. For the most part, it works famously.
