    • Excerpt: Despite the continuing chemistry between Ryan’s staid Boy Scout and Jackson’s freewheeling anarchist, who, along with Hayak’s deadpan baby fever, get the best out of lackluster writing, the frenzy feels forced and oddly stagnant.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: …one would expect that more Hayek would be a good thing. While that is indeed true, screenwriter Tom O’Connor hasn’t stepped up at all on the action plot which features so many extreme CGI explosions they become boring in their repetitiveness.
  • [New] | Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: As a piece of junky entertainment, I think it gets the job done, and the way it leans heavier on the comedy made this a more enjoyable experience than anything I can recall from the first film.
  • [New] | Richard Gray @ The Reel Bits
    • Excerpt: Somehow this sequel is both smarter and dumber than its predecessor.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: A movie to turn you off Going To The Movies, just as we are allowed to again, with its unlikeable characters, muddled action, and incomprehensible plot, all of which are magnified on the big screen.
  • Nell Minow @ Movie Mom
    • Excerpt: It’s just pretty much bang/bang/banter (“Capri? Like the pants?”), bang/chase/explosion/wisecrack (“Your mouth needs an exorcism”) in a variety of colorful locations.
