The great thing about this Horrible Bosses 2 teaser is that it doesn’t tell you anything about the movie at all. It exists only to raise questions, show off some impressive physical comedy and to put dirty words in Jennifer Aniston‘s mouth. Familiar faces are flashed, and we learn that Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis and Jason Bateman are back to perpetrate a kidnapping.
But why? They wanted to murder their bosses in the first film because they were awful. Now, their criminal path isn’t so clear.
Yet, Aniston’s character’s proclivities are back in full force. See for yourself:
It’s good to see the old gang back in slow motion status, but Sean Anders (Sex Drive, That’s My Boy) has taken over the helm from Seth Gordon. Granted, their comic sensibilities aren’t exactly alien, and the trailer makes it look like they’ve captured the low stakes magic again.
Watching the three stars do that fantastic parking lot walk, I couldn’t help but wonder if Office Space‘s legacy has finally blossomed — providing a decade of nerdy guys acting like badasses while aping rap video swagger.
Them and Rose Byrne, right?
It’s also possible that it’s not used too often, but the last time a Cleveland Steamer joke really landed was, what, Not Another Teen Movie? If I’m missing something, it’s obviously the most egregious failure of my career.
Horrible Bosses 2 is out November 26th.
