Horrible Bosses wasn't very good. It was ok. Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis clubbed together to offer enough comic timing to deliver the laughs - but that was it. A silly premise with an over-emphasis on a sexualized Jennifer Aniston. But the problem for us is that it made $200 million on a budget of around $35 million, essentially green-lighting a sequel.

And that sequel has landed. We catch-up with Nick, Dale and Kurt as they try to launch their own business. However, one of those horrible bosses, Burt Hanson (Christoph Waltz) tries to take them down. With no viable option in sight, the wise-cracking trio decide to kidnap Hanson's son Rex (Chris Pine) in order to extort ransom money.

"Horrible Bosses 2 goes for whatever cheap, vulgar gags it can collide into. Most unfortunate is the sex-crazed debasement of Aniston, who lights up the movie but suffers some of its lowest jokes," said Jake Coyle of the Associated Press.

"Make no mistake, despite some well-earned laughs, "Horrible Bosses 2" is not what qualifies as a good movie or even a particularly good R-rated comedy," said Betsy Sharkey of the Los Angeles Times.

"Duct tape, thick rope and the threat of being shot all figure prominently in "Horrible Bosses 2." All would have been required to keep me in my seat if it weren't my job to report back on this factory-issued sequel," said Kyle Smith of the New York Post.

""Horrible Bosses 2," one of the sloppiest and most unnecessary Hollywood sequels ever made, isn't dirtier or more offensive than its 2011 forerunner. But it is infinitely dumber and not half as funny," wrote Stephen Holden of the New York Times.

"Horrible Bosses 2" is the latest example of how Hollywood executives are so convinced moviegoers will blindly see a sequel that there is no reason to make the follow-up product good," said Rick Bentley of Fresno Bee.

At the Thanksgiving box-office, the sequel will go after older teens looking for a laugh, though will still drop short of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.
