In the first movie, Quest for the Spear, Flynn is stated as having been in college for 16 years. In the beginning of this, the second movie, Return to King Solomon's Mines, he has his 32nd birthday and has worked over a year as the Librarian. Even if Flynn started college at the age of 17 he would have only been able to squeeze in 13 years of college when he became the Librarian at age 30. See more »
I loved it. I have watched four times now. I love the fact that they have grown the character of Flynn and taken away much of his bumbling. Flynn is showing growth. Noah is adorable and I feel did a wonderful job, better then the first. Noah was charming, funny, and his character was very real. I think Bob Newhart and Jane Curtain played their characters wonderfully. Kazeem also did a great job and was a wonderfully likable character. Olympia as Flynn's mother is a great choice and the chemistry between them was great to see. The special effects were also great. The background was beautiful and add a great dimension to the film. All in all I loved it and feel that it was better then the first, though I truly enjoyed both. I would love to see another sequel!
