HOLLYWOOD—Jennifer Aniston reprises her sex-crazed dentist role in the comedy sequel “Horrible Bosses 2.”
Although her Dr. Julia Harris character is trying to overcome her addiction this time around, she still longs for her milquetoast former employee Dale (played again by Charlie Day), because he is the “one that got away.”
Their two worlds collide again when Dale and his pals (Jason Bateman and Jason Sudeikis returning as Nick and Kurt, respectively) decide to break into her office to secure a tank of laughing gas they need in order to kidnap the son of a flim-flam artist that ruined their fledgling business.
They figure if they kidnap the son, they will get the money they lost back. Of course, complications arise, not the least of which is that the good doctor, who is holding a sex addiction therapy group after hours, interrupts them. “Star Trek” star Chris Pine plays the willing kidnap victim with daddy issues and Christoph Waltz (“Inglourious Basterds”) is his ruthless father.
As Dr. Julia, Aniston is a sexy and almost predatory brunette. Back to her natural blondish hair color while promoting the highly anticipated sequel, Aniston says she enjoys playing such an aggressive character that is far from anything else she has previously played. Working again with Bateman, Day and Sudeikis also was a lot of fun for the former “Friends” star.
