The film’s predecessor at least had consistently funny and well-acted performances from Bullock, Caine, and Shatner to make up for a seen-before plot. This film has no Caine, hardly any Shatner, and Bullock just isn’t as funny this time around. There are a few good gags but overall the movie falls victim to trying too hard to live up to the original. The spunk and humour has dried up, and its plot isn’t just predictable but contrived. An inferior sequel.
