A typical sequel
21 June 2005 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

Peculiarities of national fishing is sometimes funny, but too often it merely celebrates its own imagined magnificence.

The "drop the cow" plot in its predecessor was funny, but it isn't quite funny to refer to it like this film is doing it; even though some laconic remarks like "Ford... creative!" are.

The same goes for the generals monologues, there's no substance, no absurdity, not even oddness, they are plainly boring and repetitive, I must add.

Also, the "mermaid" plot and the "watching the moon" scenes were a mere waste of time. But enough of bashing. There were some upsides too.

The "love on first sight" number was truly funny because it was so insanely stupid. Also things like "For a woman being deaf is a bad thing. She needs to hear words." and "What should an intelligent person think of this?" were making me laugh, at least. The whole "pantomime" scene was funny and so were the again quite laconic remarks of the police man concerning the explosion mechanism of sea mines and the subsequent behavior of the two castaways.

But then again, the whole "submarine" plot was not only a waste of time, it was annoying. So that, in the end, you have a typical sequel, often dull, sometimes topping its predecessor, but in the end a less felicitous film.
