NEW CRIME. SAME TOOLS.
When Nick, Kurt and Dale (Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day) try to start a company together and are screwed by their financier (Christoph Waltz), they come up with a scheme to get back at him. As is the case with far too many sequels, the story is thinner but the running time longer. The first movie’s script was hardly a work of art, but it served up laughs in collaboration with a cast that looked like it was having fun. This time the three buddies are getting annoying, and the raunchiness is just vapid.
2014-U.S. 108 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Sean Anders. Cast: Jason Bateman (Nick Hendricks), Charlie Day (Dale Arbus), Jason Sudeikis (Kurt Buckman), Chris Pine, Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx… Christoph Waltz, Kevin Spacey.
