While the plot wasn’t just another rehash of the first film and made an effort to wrap up what it could in the trilogy, the film suffered immensely from excessive stupid humor—which wasn’t actually humorous, so it was left with stupid—mostly from the blisteringly annoying Ken Jeong. I’m glad I didn’t pay to see this.
So, I’m very hit or miss with comedies. And this one fell in the miss category. While I enjoyed the premise and the promise, the result didn’t do much for me, and I didn’t find many laughs here. Eddie Murphy’s early scenes in the film borderlined on annoying instead of comical. And I’m pretty sure I automatically am turned off when a cabal of rich scumbags so cavalierly and contemptuously screw with people perceived as below them (similar reasons to why I couldn’t get attached to Margin Call recently). So, I’ll keep getting my early eighties Dan Akroyd kick from Ghostbusters.
