Warner Bros. Pictures, New Line Cinema, BenderSpink and RatPac Entertainment present a 108 minute, Comedy, directed by Sean Anders, screenplay by Anders and John Morris with a theater release date of November 26, 2014.

 

The guys, Nick Hendricks (Jason Bateman), Kurt Buckman (Jason Sudeikis) an Dale Arbus (Charlie Day) are out to start their own business with a product called the shower buddy they have featured on KBNC, Good Morning, Los Angeles. Television has brought them attention but maybe not quite the kind they were looking for in order to launch a new product in America, land of the free. Yet there seems to be a little light at the end of their tunnel when they meet Rex Hanson (Chris Pine) who works for a huge successful business owner, his dad, Bert Hanson (Christoph Waltz) whose company motto seems to be living the American dream, made in China. Enough said! Bert wants to manufacture the shower buddy at 100,000 units, change the name and work with the guys in making the next best home item. Yet once again the dark moon shines on the guys when they find that Bert is a crook.

They decide to come up with a plan of attack in order to take revenge on Bert and gain their lost profits back. Kidnap Rex and ask for a ransom. Like Katy Perry sings her song Roar the guys kind of express more of a meow. Things seem to go wrong, then right, then wrong, then right, then wrong and when Dr. Julia Harris, D.D.S. (Jennifer Aniston) gets involved well there’s just sex and sex talk everywhere. What choice do the guys have then to seek professional advice, enter, Dean “MF” Jones (Jamie Foxx), a high price to pay with a blue light special back-up so to speak yet in the end the man delivers. Unlike Dave Harken (Kevin Spacey) who still considers the three guys idiots and unworthy of his consultations from prison. There are many twists and turns, sexual innuendoes, awkward predicaments and Detective Hatcher (Jonathan Banks) on the guy’s tails looking for clues to what may have happen to Rex. Without spoiling things although many moments are predictable you might expect the unexpected sometimes too.

I actually enjoyed this film maybe not as much as the first one but it was still worth seeing in the theater by all means. It’s funny, sexual, bad language, comedic cast; wonderful direction and perfect writing really help to make this a comedy with a superb cast worth the box office price for you and your date. Bateman, Sudeikis and Day play so well together and remind me very much of the guys from “The Hangover” films yet maybe a bit more relatable. Day out of the three really is the actor that steals the moments. Aniston once again shines with her sex addiction attitude and foul mouth. Spacey is short lived on the screen time aspect but perfect. Foxx and Pine are great but Waltz is the winner in this supporting category with Pine a close second. Overall in the end this film is truly R rated for its raunchy yet worthy moments that truly made me chuckle. Remember to stick around for the bloopers because those are awesome. Written and enjoyed with three paws out of four by Jon Patch.
