    Everyone has piled into this dumber, sillier, more consistently funny reprise with an enthusiasm that’s infectious, and not in a low-grade medical way.

    There are gags that work, that pay off in a big way, and gags that fall flat, derailing entire sequences. Because the world around them is so absurd, the film's attempts at creating some genuine heart for Harry and Lloyd doesn't really work.

    Still, I laughed — enough to feel mortified at myself.

    The Farrellys are still not much interested in film as a visual medium, and when Lloyd and Harry aren’t smacking each other or dropping their pants, you might as well be listening to a radio play. There’s a story, but it doesn’t matter, certainly not to the leads or the good-natured sidekicks like Kathleen Turner and Rob Riggle.

    The jokes are far from fresh, yet the shock laughs are on a par with their inaugural outing and will undoubtedly appease fans of the original.

    So maybe some of this is hilarious. Heck, maybe all of it is. It will not be everyone’s cup of tea, and it was not mine.

    The original film was unpredictable and loose and every so often gave up the aura of dangerousness. If anything, the sequel is a tepid, watered down, and at 100-minutes oftentimes boring attempt to recapture the magic but without any of the whimsy.

Unfortunately, not as funny. This time they set out to find Harry's long-lost daughter, but not without silly complications. There are a funny moments scattered around and the duo still brings plenty of goofy energy. It's just that more of the jokes fall flat than land a laff. At least they didn't stoop to the current trend in gross-outs gags, but went for the classic stupid characters. Expand

At least the first one wasn't trying to be dumb as much as it just was. This is forcibly dumb and it comes across like each joke was dissected by a room full of writers and execs. This sequel should have come out 10 years ago, much like the Anchorman sequel and severely lost the audience. Expand
