I was so pumped up to see this movie because i have always loved the house party movies. When i finally got to see it i was let down, i couldn't believe that kid n' play would let this movie be made. The two main top actors in the movie are great man and actors but this movie was not for them. The plot of the movie was to simple and predictable and the rest of the cast need acting lessons asap. They try to follow the steps of the first movie but ended with an hell of a epic fail. The movie itself do have some funny parts in it, when watching it it feels as if they try way to hard to get a laugh out of you. But for this new generation this movie may spark their minds. As for us old school folks we can just re-watch the original movies.
