Horrible Bosses 2

“Horrible” is the word, I’m afraid.  Sequel is scripted in such a dry, formulaic manner that you’ll swear you’ve seen it already in another, possibly funnier, form. Three main guys (esp. Charlie Day) seem to think they’re funny, which is why this actually more tragic than comedic.  If there’s anything we’re laughing at here, its the fact that what was billed as an A-list cast is really just a series of cameoing actors that the three dudes encounter, much in the same way that Dorothy stopped and met all her comrades on the yellow brick road in “The Wizard of Oz”.  And if you thought the cowardly lion was annoying, get a load of Kevin Spacey, Christoph Waltz, and Jamie Foxx.  Okay maybe Foxx isn’t quite as embarrassing to watch as those other two, but all three are a considerable waste of talent.  You’d think that this one would capitalize on the humor–not to mention, the box office success–of the first film, but you’d be wrong.  It does, however, capitalize on profanity and eyerolling.  If that’s not what you were looking for, then save yourself ten bucks and two hours, and watch the trailer instead.
