The movie stars: Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, Chris Pine, Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman, Christoph Waltz, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day. We’ve added blurbs from a few of the critics, below.

Mick LaSalle at the San Francisco Chronicle, gave it a decent 75 score, stating: “Horrible Bosses 2 is harsh and tasteless, not to mention broad and shameless, but that’s not a bad thing in this case. Softness and good taste, as well as restraint and carefulness, are the enemies of comedy, and “Horrible Bosses 2” is a very funny movie.”

Chris Nashawaty from Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 67, saying: ” It’s the small, tossed-off moments — Bateman’s deadpan mugging, Day’s frenzied cluelessness, and Sudeikis’ smarmy one-liners — that land the best.”

Tom Russo over at the Boston Globe, gave it a 63 grade. He stated: ” A new misadventure whose negligibly refined formula somehow ends up being more consistently entertaining.”

Joe Neumaier from the New York Daily News, gave it a 60 score. He said: “So the big surprise of Horrible Bosses 2 is how far it gets on the hopped-up jabberjaw alliance of Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day. In the 2011 “Bosses,” they were swamped by the conceit: White-collar pals try to kill awful employers. Now, freed up to free-associate, they’re totally winning.”

Brian Tallerico at RogerEbert.com, gave it a 50 grade, stating: ” Morris & Anders, who also directed, literally repeat many of the same set-ups and punchlines from the original “Bosses,” only more crassly this time and with more discussion of bodily fluids. And nothing is quite as cinematically desperate as someone telling you a joke you’ve already heard only louder.”
