"Horrible Bosses 2" returns to the crew of guys who now have the opportunity to be their own bosses, though their plan to get rich and successful doesn't come without some bumps. The comedy movie, which is a sequel to the 2011 film, was directed by Sean Anders using a screenplay he co-wrote with John Morris. "Horrible Bosses 2" hit theaters on November 26, 2014.
In "Horrible Bosses 2," Nick (Jason Bateman), Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) and Dale (Charlie Day) are back and have started their own business, producing the Shower Buddy. Things are going well and they even get a huge initial order from businessman Burt Hanson (Christoph Waltz).
But when Burt cancels the order and hijacks the product idea, the guys decide to take revenge and, with the help of a friend (Jamie Foxx), kidnap Burt's son, Rex (Chris Pine). The plan doesn't quite go as imagined but it does lead them to some comical interactions with old friends like Nick's old boss David (Kevin Spacey), and Dale's old boss, Dr. Julia (Jennifer Aniston)."Horrible Bosses 2" has stiff box office competition as it joins other great movies in theaters including "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1," "Dumb and Dumber To," "Foxcatcher," "Beyond the Lights," "The Homesman," "Interstellar," "The Theory of Everything," "Nightcrawler," "Big Hero 6," "Before I Go to Sleep," "Horns," "John Wick," "White Bird in a Blizzard," "Fury," "The Best of Me," "The Book of Life," "Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)," "The Judge," "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day," "St. Vincent," and "Gone Girl."
The Name's Not Official Yet
Mike: "Every week we like to highlight local inventors and entrepreneurs. What is it that inspired three regular Joes to go into business for yourselves?"Nick, Kurt and Dale appear on a local morning show to introduce their product. It seems, though, they are still debating the name for said product, live on television.
Nick: "Well, we were all working at pretty terrible jobs for some awful bosses and we just thought, if we ever got a chance to be our own bosses, that we'd do things differently."
Kurt: "Yeah, we came up with the Shower Buddy."
Dale: "I'm sorry, that name's not official yet. I wanted the Shower Daddy."
Nick: "Shower Daddy is worse on pretty much every level so, yeah."
Dale: "Why would your buddy be in the shower with you?!"
Kurt: "Why would your dad?!"156Should this be higher or lower?
An Initial Order of 100,000 Units
Burt: "I'll place an initial order of 100,000 units."The guys are elated when Burt offers to order 100,000 Shower Buddies. This feeling soon turns to rage when, after they've made those 100,000 products, Burt cancels the order.
Dale: "100,000 Shower Buddies!"
Nick: "We have finished your order in full and it is ready to be shipped."
Burt: "I'm afraid I'm going to have to cancel that order."
Nick: "Did you say cancel?"
Burt: "We have our own new product, the Shower Pal!"
Kurt: "That's a better name too."
Dale: "It is a better name."114Should this be higher or lower?

Nick: "What were we thinking? Who bets on themselves? We need to find half a million dollars to get us our company back."With few good options to save their business, Kurt comes up with the brilliant idea to stage a kidnapping. At least he means kidnapping, even if he can't spell the word.
Kurt: "I got it. Boom! Marker drop!"
Kurt: "That's kidnapping."
Nick: "With one more P it is. That's kidnaping… Boy, was that a Sharpie?"92Should this be higher or lower?
You're All Morons!
Nick: "You got my email?"The guys head to prison to talk to David, Nick's former horrible boss. They look for advice from the businessman but only receive mocking instead.
David: "I did and I was very amused by it. I know Burt Hanson. I like the cut of his jib and I do admire how he bent your three idiots over a barrel and showed you the 50 states."
Kurt: "See, told you it was a saying."
David: "Now, Nick, just, just tell me something. Why would you start production without at least a guarantee of 35% down to cover manufacturing costs? I mean…"
Nick: "Uh, we assumed that we were dealing with somebody who was…"
David: "Uh, no, that's the wrong answer. The right answer is because… you're all morons!"
Kurt: "Wow, you shined a light on that. Didn't you?"
David: "Your options are…"
Dale: "Legal options"
David: "Jack s***!"
Dale: "I heard Jack Leibowitz. Is that an attorney?"
Kurt: "Gotta be"
Dale: "I'm going to write that down too."
Kurt: "Can we get his contact information please?"
Dale: "Do you have his contact info?"106Should this be higher or lower?
