The film is not smart enough, not thrilling enough, and the whole story feels like a cop out born from marketing hype rather than one grown from well thought out scientific reasoning. It’s a dud.
The sometimes goofy and oftentimes playfully irreverent retelling of Doug Kenney’s life story seems to fit the man well. Fans of the Lampoon era and their later offshoots will find much to savor here.
This half-baked sequel never even comes close to touching the brilliance of its predecessor, but it’s good for a few hearty laughs.
As with most of Sandler’s recent work, the story has a sweet and heartfelt tone and ending. It’s not really out of place here, but it also doesn’t exactly feel earned or authentic.
This is a strained mockumentary that isn’t worth your time.
