Extremely enjoyable sequel
31 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

After I saw the first installment a couple days ago, I was looking forward to the sequel, and I'm glad I did. Does Rodrick rule? Sort of. But he's not exactly made out to be the whole show here. With a movie this entertaining, its predictability is the least of its problems. In fact, its not a bad thing at all. Like I said, the movie is a bit predictable. Needless to say, the party sequence is, of course, more predictable than anything else. The movie just wants to entertain, tell a worthy story, and it never gets old. So, with a movie this good, its flaws don't matter in the slightest. So I hope there are more sequels to come.
