Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Horrible Bosses 2 is the sequel to Horrible Bosses, but it's far less funny -- and even more tasteless. Language is extremely strong, with tons of uses of "f--k" (and just about every other word under the son) and heavy, frequent sexual innuendo. A sex act is shown on a grainy surveillance tape, with thrusting and a man's naked bottom. Women are objectified. Guns are fired, characters die, and blood is shown. A man punches himself in the face. The main characters cheerfully enter into a criminal plot, with no consequences (they seem too dumb to have learned anything). The first movie was quite funny and smart, and it was possible to sympathize with the characters, but this time, their stupidity is their undoing. But teens who loved the original hit will probably still want to see this one, too.
A technically innocent act is made to look like two men engaged in oral sex, as well as touching in other places. Very strong sexual innuendo. A meeting of a sex addiction group. Sex act viewed in grainy surveillance footage; a man's naked bottom and thrusting shown. Women are objectified.
A character is shot, with blood shown. Other characters are shot. A character punches himself in the face, with blood and bruises shown. Car chase, with near-crashes.
"F--k" is used very frequently; a character's actual name is "Motherf----r." Also constant use of words like "t-ts," "c--k," "ass," "bitch," "blow job," "d--k," "balls," "a--hole," piss," and "Jesus Christ" (as an exclamation). A website is called "NickKurtDale," which, pronounced quickly, sounds like "the 'N' word Dale."
Three characters gleefully indulge in crime to get what they want, with very iffy behavior throughout. They pay a small price but ultimately get away with it. Corporate criminals are punished. Women are objectified. Mean practical jokes are played.
