I’m certain I’m in the minority, but I actually enjoyed this a good deal, and would gladly watch this again over the boring, poorly paced original. Sure, this film is goofy and over-the-too at points, but the characters are a hell of a lot more fun to spend time with in this sequel, and it’s just fun.
I loved that when a house is crushing one character, the character yells “what a world, what a world”, a stupidly out of place, but hilarious Wizard of Oz reference that made me laugh.
There were more than a few moments that made me laugh, in fact, some intentional and other not so much, but either way, it kept my attention, I liked the characters, and just had fun. Much more than I can say about the original film.
