Horrible Bosses 2 (2014)

Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, and Jason Bateman in Horrible Bosses 2

Details Release Date: Nov 26, 2014; Rated: R; Genre: Comedy; With: Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis; Distributor: Warner Bros.

The three hapless employees played by Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day in 2011's Horrible Bosses are still grappling with beastly supervisors, but there's a twist: Now they're self-employed. After inventing a Shower Buddy gadget they think will make them millionaires, the trio end up in a kidnap/ransom scheme targeting the father-son investors (Christoph Waltz and Chris Pine) who ripped them off. ''That obviously goes sideways pretty quickly,'' Bateman says. ''We are forced into another situation that smarter guys probably wouldn't find themselves in.'' Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston, and Jamie Foxx also return, but Seth Gordon—who directed the first film—has handed the helm to That's My Boy's Sean Anders, so there is a new boss after all.
