I also enjoyed the first film more than this one. While it certainly does have its moments, the film feels extremely rushed (and it's 3 times longer than the original).
It seems as if HBO had imposed length requirements, or the filmmaker just didn't shoot enough. The film rushes through things way too quickly - there is nothing of Peter's 7th grade year and his entire junior year is summarized by a field trip to Busch Gardens.
