It's a fun movie(if you watch in french dub audio)
11 January 2011 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

Really enjoyed the first one(the french dubbed one, with all the scenes intact) and enjoyed the second one as well. Fun movie, funny humor(it's not tenacious d funny, I mean come on It's a still a kids movie). Watch in french with English subbs, sounds better and makes a whole lot of sense cause the animated segments are made by french people(They recorded it in the suits, with all their gestures and stuff, and were originally made in french, and you can notice this(in all of the movies) cause they speak really fast, and if you watched french movies ever in your life, you'd know they have a fast tempo. Fun, enjoyable and easy to watch movie, i recommend it to kids as well as older people Enjoy :)
