    For a sequel this film is pretty strong. The film doesn't stray from the formula too much and it works pretty much, just as effectively. The film definitely makes fun of itself more so than it did in the previous and while that was very entertaining it was a little too much at times. So yeah, pretty much exactly like the first one, but in college and essentially just as fun.

    As far as remakes/reboots go this is pretty great.

    This film is essentially visual poetry. You can really see it link between the golden age of cinema and French new-wave. The is a lot of romanticisation in regards to the relationship and that's what I feel it borrows from the Golden era. However it's extremely intelligent and the dialogue for all intent and purposes is just pure poetry. Really beautifully written. Visually the film is amazing. The shots are beautiful. Fantastic film.
