Pre-Trailer Thoughts: Apparently the original Horrible Bosses did so well it got a sequel. –LJF
Pre-Trailer Thoughts: People loved themselves some Horrible Bosses, so here we go again. –BB
Rate the Trailer (1-5): Three out of five. The trailer made me chuckle a couple times, but nothing groundbreaking here. The man trio pulls in a lot of interest, and the great supporting cast (Jamie Foxx, Chris Pine, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Aniston, and Jonathan Banks) lend a lot to the proceedings. This could be a really good time, or fall flat. Let’s hope it pulls through. –LJF
Rate the Trailer (1-5): Three out of five. I really had no interest in seeing the original Horrible Bosses, but after seeing this, I think I’d give HB2 a shot. I think the plot’s pretty interesting (Oh, it could go terribly wrong no doubt.) and I’ve grown in appreciation for both Sudeikis and Day. –BB
Theater, Rent, No Thanks, Undecided? Undecided. As of right now, I haven’t seen the original Horrible Bosses so I have to choose undecided. Do I want to see the first one? Absolutely, yes. But until that occurs, I can’t make any real decision on this one, despite the fact that I do want to see it eventually. –LJF
Theater, Rent, No Thanks, Undecided? Rent. I’d definitely give this a shot, but I haven’t seen the original, so I won’t be driving to the local cineplex to catch this one. However, I can see myself doing a double feature HB 1 and 2. –BB
