Horrible Bosses 2: A dream come true for Jennifer Aniston

Horrible Bosses 2: A dream come true for Jennifer Aniston
By Euronews

<p>Why not kidnap to save your company?</p> <p>Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day and Jason Bateman do just that in the comedy sequel ‘Horrible Bosses 2’.</p> <p>When the disgruntled employees see their dreams of launching a business ruined by a rich investor, their only solution is to kidnap his adult son.</p> <p>Jennifer Aniston also reprises her role as Julia, the sexually rapacious dentist.</p> <p>At the film’s European premiere in London, the actress explained that she was happy to move away from her often sweet-natured characters in order to play a boss with a voracious libido.</p> <p>“You know, I felt shockingly comfortable”, Aniston exclaimed. “I think because it’s like putting on a big costume and just – you know – going as far against every fibre in my being that exists and just playing out all the fantasies of – you know – every sort of fantasy woman that we’ve ever imagined.”</p> <p>The trio’s fledgling company aims to sell ‘Shower Buddy’; a device dispensing soap, shampoo and conditioner from a single bathroom fixture.</p> <p>Everything seems to be going swimmingly, until investor Bert Hanson cancels an order for 10,000 units.</p> <p>This sends the company into bankruptcy, forcing them to sell the devices at a fraction of the wholesale cost.</p> <p>Christoph Waltz plays the role of Bert Hanson:<br /> “Well, it actually fulfills all the requirements of a great comedy because it has the silliness, it has – what I hear repeatedly – the raunchiness. If you choose to call it such. But it also has a very smart and, in a way, almost intellectual level that is hidden just underneath the surface and that’s really the best a comedy can do.”</p> <p>The trio estimate that kidnapping Hanson’s intolerably smug son Rex should net them enough ransom money to pay off their debt and remain in business.</p> <p>‘Horrible Bosses 2’ is on worldwide release from November 2014.</p>
