"Unfinished Business" (The Guardian 06/03/15)

Unfinished Business **
Dir: Ken Scott. With: Vince Vaughn, Dave Franco, Tom Wilkinson, Sienna Miller. 91 mins. Cert: 15

Horrible Bosses has apparently spawned a new subgenre: exec-relief comedy, offering conformist capers for frustrated suits to nod off to on long-haul flights. This rote entry, in which vertical corpse Vince Vaughn joins horny Dave Franco and hoary Tom Wilkinson on a corporate Berlin jolly, can’t even commit to its own raucousness, retreating from sniggering, Pitbull-scored misadventures in spas and gay bars so that family guy Vince can log wholly insincere FaceTime sessions with a bullied son. No better or worse than indifferent, although its targeting of the German capital for fratboy profiteering suggests some renegotiation of the Marshall Plan may now be necessary. 

Unfinished Business opens in cinemas nationwide today.
