The movie that will make even the unhappiest of employees feel better about their own terrible bosses is officially back. Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis are reuniting as Nick, Dale, and Kurt in the trailer for Horrible Bosses 2 – only this time, they’re the ones in charge of their own careers.
After trying to kill their bosses in a complicated scheme that spirals out of control in the last film, the three men are now trying to start their own business. But after a shady investor tricks them and ends up taking over their venture, the trio desperately tries to regain control of the company by coming up with another harebrained plan. The friends decide to save their business by kidnapping the investor’s adult son (Chris Pine) and holding him for ransom.
In good news for fans of the franchise, Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey, and Jamie Foxx, who brought tons of laughs as Dr. Julia Harris, Dave Harken, and Dean “MF” (you know what it stands for) Jones in the first film, will reprise their roles in the sequel, as well. Aniston as Miller seems to be reaching a new level of sexual wildness in this follow-up, even asking Nick to defecate on her, as seen at one point during the trailer. Meanwhile, Harken is still in jail for killing Kurt’s former boss, Bobby Pellit, and Jones continues to give bad “criminal” advice and fill his new friends’ heads with absurd plans for revenge.
