As funny as 2011’s Horrible Bosses is, Horrible Bosses 2 is even funnier. The jokes are more consistent and the comedy shows no restraint. It continues its skit based comedic style, and instead of having a story that they squeeze jokes into, the jokes and story go hand in hand. In a comedy, this is what you want.
As for the rest of the film, the story is not as easily paced as its predecessor. In the first movie the events all fit together to feel like one big event–similar to Reservoir Dogs. In the sequel, there are a few more plot points, so the story becomes a little more intricate, thus the narrative more unorganized. But because the tone is so consistent, its slightly uneven pacing is forgiven.
If you’re a fan of the first, you won’t have to worry about typical sequel problems with this one. The plot is very creative and doesn’t feel forced. And it’s the same exact type of comedy here, but more of it.
