Goofs

Jackie Seville referred to Toby Seville as her grandson, but he later referred to her as his aunt. This was actually not a mistake because Toby was talking to Dave Seville at the time, and he was describing her from Dave's point of view. See more »

Good, so long as you don't expect a serious film
28 December 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film, but mostly because I went in with the expectation that I would have an hour and a half of laughs and general fun, not a serious film. I have seen the first film, and this isn't as good as it, but probably because film makers always use up all there best ideas in the first films, very few sequels live up to or surpass the originals. Obviously it's not the sort of film you can watch again and again, the jokes are clichéd and will quickly become old to anyone over the age of about 8. It never ceases to amaze me why adults go and see a children's film and somehow expect a serious film. All in all, good fun, the quality of the film isn't bad. Children will enjoy this, and their parents won't be bored by it either!
