A Look Back at Sean Anders

by Kat Wheat


To celebrate the release of Horrible Bosses 2, in cinemas now, we thought we’d take a look at the career of director and screenwriter Sean Anders. Known for his raunchy humor as well as his relatable (and usually unlucky) characters, Anders has a knack for merging comedically strong personalities and bizarre situations that touches on sociocultural issues with a comedic, light-hearted twist. Here’s a look at some of Sean’s career highlights.

Sex Drive

Back in 2008, Sean directed and also co-wrote a film about a guy driving across the country for sex. One of his most successful films, Sex Drive has a cult following and brings raunchy to a whole new level. The movie takes a look at a sexualized Amish cult, with characters such as a sarcastic mechanic Ezekiel and Mary, an Amish girl who loves sex.

Hot Tub Time Machine

Another Anders screenplay, this movie is about three down-on-their-luck guys who, unhappy with their lives, time travel to the past via a hot tub activated by, the best thing ever, Russian liquor. A humorous take on every adult’s wish to return to their heyday, Anders allows his characters to grow and develop personally while providing the audience with crude and hilarious scenes that created this film’s strong fan following.

We’re the Millers

A more recent addition to Anders’ repertoire, this comedy is about four strangers posing as a family to smuggle illegal drugs across the Mexican border. Similar to his previous films, Anders combines laugh-inducing situations and an interesting mix of character personalities to create yet another hilarious comedy. Supporting characters, such as Don, really shine in this film as the main “family” learns how to live as a cohesive unit while crossing the border.

Horrible Bosses 2

Anders is directing the new comedy Horrible Bosses 2. While he didn’t work on the first installment, it shouldn’t be an issue for Anders to jump into the mix. With our favourite cast returning to the screen, expect even more hilariously unfortunate events and crude humour with the help of Anders’ direction.

Horrible Bosses 2 is out in cinemas now.
