This was one of the movies I’ve been looking forward to the most this year, because I enjoyed the first one so much. The verdict? Horrible Bosses 2 is very entertaining, but its predecessor can’t be topped. However, here are ten reasons that make this movie worth a trip to the cinema!
Jamie Foxx and his fizzy drinks
Oscar winner Jamie Foxx is hilarious as the not-quite-so-badass acquaintance of the three main characters. Love it when he sits at the bar sipping his drink like a five year old in kindergarten, while still looking as cool as a cucumber with his shades, black jacket and tattoos.
Jennifer Aniston takes it to the next level
Despite being such a lovely and decent human being in real life, she comes across totally believable as a devious dentist with a sex addiction.
Kevin Spacey ranting from prison
Kevin Spacey’s intimidating charisma is both fascinating and scary. I wouldn’t want to be on his bad side. Or have him as a boss for that matter! Still, a great asset to this movie, despite being locked up in jail…
I know he can come across as hyperactive and slightly annoying, but you can’t help but love this guy. He has this innocent and disarming charm that makes you want to cuddle him. But maybe that’s just me?
Chris Pine as a total assh*le
Spoiler Alert! Chris Pine’s character seems like a good guy in the middle of the movie, but turns into a total and complete assh*le at the end. And yet, he’s so entertaining to watch. Because, let’s be honest, the bad guys are always the most fun parts of any movie, aren’t they?
Christoph Waltz’s accent
For some reason German, or in this case Austrian, accents make the bad guy more credible. Mr. Waltz’s English is very good, but a hint of his Austrian nationality shines through and makes his character more believable as a Hollywood baddie.
Yes, there are quite a lot of cheesy gags in this movie, but they’re enjoyable enough. Writing embarrassing stuff on a white board with a permanent marker is something that happens all the time. But because it’s such a recognizable situation, it will make you laugh.
The ‘terrible threesome’
Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day have great chemistry. It’s clear that they had a blast making both movies and that translates on the screen as well.
Original car chase
I’ve seen so many car chases in movies over the past couple of years, that I can’t even recall half of them. Bu this one had a few original twists to it, which was refreshing. Especially the parts with the train and the fence were very amusing.
Jason Bateman being annoyed
Maybe this is a personal one, but it’s always a joy to see Jason Bateman look slightly annoyed. It just comes natural to him. Although I have seen him laugh out loud in the bloopers and in interviews. The man is capable of smiling, yet I prefer seeing him grumpy in movies… Plenty of sour facial expressions in this film, so I’m not complaining! Did you enjoy the movie? Leave a comment below!
