Tuesday’s Top Trailer: Horrible Bosses 2

Welcome back to a weekly feature here at Movies with Abe, Tuesday's Top Trailer. One of my favorite parts about going to see movies is the series of trailers that airs beforehand and, more often than not, the trailer is far better than the actual film. Each week, I'll be sharing a trailer I've recently seen. Please chime in with comments on what you think of the trailer and how you think the movie is going to be.

Horrible Bosses 2 – Opening November 26, 2014

Sometimes my movie tastes don’t quite make sense, and “Horrible Bosses” is just one of those movies that I didn’t necessarily expect to like but then did even though it doesn’t jive with the much more serious awards fare that I tend to prefer. There was something undeniably funny about the first film and the combination of miserable employees and their horrible bosses that just worked, and I wasn’t sure whether they could replicate it again for a second go-round. Fortunately, the first film had plenty of funny moments that weren’t in the trailer, so let’s hope that that’s the case again here. Putting Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis together again to come up with another hairbrained scheme to take control of their lives seems like a terrific idea, and they’ve enlisted more than able talent to help them. Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey, and Jamie Foxx are back in supporting roles that appear to be funny. Christoph Waltz gets to play some sort of CEO who is initially big on the trio’s new business but then decides to change his tune. And then there’s Chris Pine, who is effortlessly charismatic in the “Star Trek” series and any other film in which he stars, and who here seems to be having a blast, competing with the trio and then deciding to get in on his own kidnaping (purposeful misspelling) plot. This could be stupid, sure, but from the looks of it, this could actually be a solid and worthwhile sequel.
