User Review

Pretty Good

Rating: 7/10

I finally saw this sequel and it was better than what many people say.
Murphy has some very hilarious moments and Reinhold and Ashton were just
as
good. Also, the action scene's were decent too, though the chase with
the
cement truck was'nt as good as the chase in the first with the transport
truck. I did notice that the film lacked the freshness of the first one
but
still it was fun to watch.
