Sarcastically funny
20 August 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I do not agree with the bad reviewers. I laughed pretty hard non-stop. Having liked the prequel, and reading reviews here, I did not had any expectations. But to my surprise this was outstandingly funny for me. It is far-far better than those " funny" spoof movies that are applauded for no reasons. Not only it had good sarcasm on changing journalism but also some real good ROFL moments. I especially liked the father-son conversations and their unhealthy relationship. Of-course, you need to leave your logics behind to watch those scenes but they were all scripted funny unlike those spoof movies whether laughter is forced by weirdest actions and not script. The last fight sequence was pretty lame but apart from that the whole movie was consistently funny to the core. Not to miss our Brick guy who could be the dumbest guy on screen ever. All his one liners are legendary - " There is always a black guy who follows me in sunlight " . I liked this movie and will wait if there could be a sequel following.
