Better than the original. A comedy sequel that’s funnier than the former film is a rare thing. HB2 features the first HB characters: Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston and Jamie Foxx in standout expletive-laden scenes that will be quotable for quite some time. I had no idea that Chris Pine could be funny.
Right chemistry and timing. At every turn, the trio makes such stupid decisions, that one would start to resent these characters that take us along on a cringe-inducing trip. But, the dynamic between the main characters with their incessant yammering and likable demeanors makes the trip worth it. HB2 has a script that’s both fresh and hilariously obscene and is delivered by consummate professionals that have chops to deliver the lines.
