When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. A mix up with the Farmer, a caravan and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it's up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to the green grass of home.
Shaun is a sheep who doesn't follow the flock - in fact, he leads them into all sorts of scrapes and scraps, turning peace in the valley into mayhem in the meadow. Shaun and his pals run ... See full summary »

I'm not usually taking the time to write a review here, but as I had the "opportunity" to watch this film at an early preview, I thought it was the right time to do it (especially as there wasn't another review at the time of the first submission of this review)).
Well, for a start I'm a huge fan of Aardmann Studio for a long time, and the first Shaun the Sheep movie is one of my favorite of their last productions, so I was really excited to watch this sequel.
What a let down! This is the worst Aardmann movie I ever saw. The first film was so funny, while this one will just make you smile occasionaly, and that if you're easy to please. (The theater was filled with a lot of young children that are usually easy to please: I didn't heard them laugh very much either)
The story is about an extra-terrestrial lost on Earth who want to return Home. OK they chose to do a parody of E.T, why not? The problem is the jokes are dull, the references so heavy, and the worst of it, is they managed to make this film annoying. I mean so annoying that I nearly left the theater (and I never do that).
Aside of the non funny jokes, the principal issue is the gibberish used non stop during the movie. In the first film that was used with parcimony, but here, oh my... Watching the main characters "speaking" like this during the full length of the movie: it is unbearable. The only good moment is when I heard the music "out of control" (it perfectly describes what happens during the writing of this sequel). So many talents (animation) wasted by mediocre writing. What a shame!
So, to resume I would say: this film has an entertainement quality level near of zero, but its animation quality is excellent as usual . But what is the point watching a boring movie? Avoid, and watch again the first film instead!
Summary: Boring to death, but technically great.
