No Oscar in sight, but silly and fun
12 August 2019 | by confred-52577See all my reviews

I only stumbled on this by accident, and that's why I never saw the first film. I bet it was better, since most "first parts" of a series of films is better than the follow-ups, but nontheless this was quite fun. I don't have kids, so I watched it alone - not even during Christmas-Season - and I still had fun for the most parts. With no expectations to it whatsoever, I was pleasantly surprised. What was a bit annoying are the endless singing-numbers at the end, though that's not at all due to the talent of the singers and dancers but for the needless dragging on. Saying I don't have kids doesn't mean I don't KNOW kids - I work with them, every agegroup, and therefor I can with confidence say that no teenager would be caught dead watching this. But kids up until nine or ten would probably laugh a lot. *I* did laugh a lot, which is due to the cast (especially David Tennant and Joana Page) and the sheer ridiculousness of the whole plot. Seven stars, because it does drag a bit and since what I personally would have liked to see more of was cut short due to having children perform on stage. Would have preferred more wilderness-adventures for myself in exchange. So. Seven. Not too shabby
