This is a horrible and stupid film. there is no story line, no plot and no theme. The acting is poor and mediocre at best and You've seen everything before in a C rated college movie from the...

Aimless Mess that Misses the Mark

By mongojoe
What a disappointment. Two hours of unfunny, too-random, strained attempts at humor. This is Will Ferrel's worst film, by far. It's as though they drafted a plot outline on a cocktail napkin, and...

Didn't have high hopes...

By jnespeca
After seeing overplayed comedy sequels tank (ahem, Austin Powers franchise), I went in expecting a dud, with overplayed versions of the same jokes from the first movie. This one exceeded expectations!...

It has its moments.

Okay, if you're looking for the movie to meet or exceed the first one, wait to rent. If you enjoyed the first one and want to see something as silly, by all means go. Just don't set your expectations...
