User Reviews

Not very funny or well done.
27 May 2006 | by obm4See all my reviews

It was an OK movie.I ca'nt see why people are rating it so hi?Maybe they work for the company haha.Do'nt even think it's going to be anything like the first 2.I hope my young grandkids will like it.My wife stopped watching it ,I wanted to but like to see endings.It had a few laughs,but wish id had read the reviews first.I ca'nt see why it's so hard for movie companies to,make sequels.Or they just make it as low budget as possible. Tey don't want you to pirate movies but do they care if you pay good money for garbage? I don't feel sorry for any of the studios. I can also see why murphy did'nt act in this one.Enough with not enough lines already Gary
