The boys are back! Dale, Kurt and Nick decide to start their own business but things don't go as planned after a slick investor really screws them over.

I was a fan of the first Horrible Bosses film but Horrible Bosses 2 is a good example that not every good movie needs a sequel. The writing feels lazy and rushed; I found myself chuckling but I was hoping to have more big laughs like in the first movie.

The cast is made up of amazing actors: Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day have a fun chemistry together but for some reason this movie didn't harness it, which hurts the film. I love Jennifer Aniston's character but this time they toned her down when they really should of amped her up. Kevin Spacey also returns and the scenes with him are worth watching and as always he steals the show. Christoph Waltz is a new addition to this movie; I'm a big fan of Waltz but just like the rest of the characters in this film his is two dimensional.

The director Sean Anders did a grate job with the car case by using the right mix for action and comedy. As for the rest of the movie, he really depends on montages which should really only be used occasionally in a movie.

Most of the time Horrible Bosses 2 is quite boring, it doesn’t bring anything new to the table and it feels lazy. The movie has an awesome cast but feels like they don't push the actors to their full potential which is most likely because of the mediocre writing. The laughs are ok but nothing sticks and I just wanted the movie to end. Cheers and remember life won't suck as long as there is a good movie to watch.
