Critic Reviews

  1. This inferior sequel is doomed by a lousy - and extremely vulgar - script.
  2. He (Murphy) can't make chicken a la king from the chicken manure supplied by the writers.
  3. 30
    Sporadically funny, the film seems weighted down, literally, with bulging, bulbous Murphys flatulating endlessly.
  4. An amazing technical accomplishment that never becomes a coherent movie.

    Be prepared to laugh less at a lot more of the same thing in this overbearing but underwhelming sequel.

    Half vulgar and funny, half tedious and cloying; despite the shameless laughs, it's still a disappointment.
  7. 25
    An annoying, unclever, unlikable movie.
  8. The star's over-the-top energy isn't enough to make this hopelessly vulgar, numbingly repetitious farce worth watching.
  9. 20
    Wastes most of its 110 minutes making impotent jokes about male sexual behavior and the repugnance of old women.

    What was a ragged but often hilarious charmer has been genetically altered into a deafening and desperate mutant.
  11. 20
    Suffers from a serious case of sophomore slump.
  12. It will linger like a foul odor or the taste of tinfoil between the teeth.
  13. The thrill is definitely gone, leaving a disappointing and unpleasant mess in its place.

    Utterly unnecessary sequel.

    Eddie's back and thanks to the success of the hilarious Klump family in the first film the sequel was based around them. It's probably on parEddie's back and thanks to the success of the hilarious Klump family in the first film the sequel was based around them. It's probably on par with the first film with just as many jokes, and I loved having more of the Klumps on screen, but that 'dinner scene' has lost its effect from the first film. Janet replaces Jada and she fits in well with the film. There is a nice blend of comedy mixed with good messages but overall its a great comedy and again Eddie's best work in my opinion. Full Review »
