With the exception of a few additional cast members and many failed attempts at teaching morals, this movie is essentially the first movie. There's virtually no progression of story or character development, it's just one lame gag and pratfall after another.
If you enjoyed the first movie, i say wait for a rental. For everyone else, go and see Pacific Rim instead.
