User Review

Exceeded my Expectations

Rating: 8/10


When I saw the trailer for this, I was pretty excited. I loved the
whole premise of the first one, and having a sequel opened up whole new
opportunities. I was excited when I saw all these famous characters
from history being mashed together, Al Capone, Napoleon Bonaparte,
Amelia Earhart, to name a few.

I walked into the theater not expecting to much, but when I left I was
very happy with it. They handled every characters personality
beautifully, and the inside jokes were hilarious. I don't want to give
much away, but trust me, you'll laugh. It tackles many themes like, a
house divided cannot stand, the way to happiness is doing what you
love, don't dwell on the past, etc. For a family flick they handle this
jumbled cast of characters with complex personalities amazingly. They
threw away most of the characters from the first movie to make way for
the newer characters, which I didn't like that much, but how many
characters can you throw in a story to have it make sense?

This film is an amazing example of a movie made for kids and adults.
Kids will enjoy the silly humor, and the monkey. While adults will
laugh at the onslaught of in-jokes, and trust me, there's a lot.

All in all, this was a great movie, blew me away. The highlight for me
was Hank Azaria, that lisp kills me every time.
