This one was even more ordinary than the first. Having grown up with TV's "MR. ED" I really thought I would have appreciated this movie series a lot more than I am. The dialogue for the talking mule is not nearly as funny as it should have been, and Francis is kept to the sidelines way too much in this entry. I mean, when you're watching a series like this one, you're looking for the babbling jackass to entertain you throughout it. What other reason could there be for watching? And while it's mildly amusing to hear a mule berate his master (the well-cast Donald O'Connor) I still think it couldn't have hurt for the writing department to fashion a likable personality for this animal, too. ** out of ****
