I mean, what else could they possibly add? Only more fun and laughter. And, that was basically what this movie was all about – more fun and more laughter.
The opening scene was a bit long and quite extravagant. I won’t ruin it for you, but let’s just say it seemed like a big deal – very flashy and very Hollywood.
(Note: For those who have seen the film, you’ll know what I’m talking about).
Basically, this movie was about something a lot of people can relate to – just wanting to get away from it all. In a sense, it was about taking a vacation away from real life. Isn’t that what we all want sometimes?
At first, the vacation can seem like a fantasy – too good to be true. But, when that fantasy turns out to be a reality – sometimes it doesen’t turn out the way we want it to be. And, then all we ever want is our reality back. This is what the film is about.
Since I’m a fan of the series, I enjoyed seeing the characters all come back together – it brought back a lot of memories. To be honest, I think this movie is really for those who enjoy the series.
(Note: For those who are not fans of the series and/or have not seen the series before, a word of caution – it may be a bit confusing if you are not familiar with the characters. Unlike the first movie, this film (in my opinion) is mostly understandable for those who are familiar with the series and the characters).
It’s not the greatest movie, not Oscar worthy. But, it is entertaining. And, it brings it back to what the series is all about – friends, the ups and downs of life, and being around those who care.
As in the series, there are ups and downs – good times and bad times. But, in the end – the good outweigh the bad.
Overall, I think this was an “ok” movie. It entertained me and I enjoyed seeing the characters come back to the big screen. In a way, I felt a little nostalgic – it made me want to see the series again. Maybe I will.
If you are a fan of the series and are in the mood for a comedy type film, this one will make for a good rental.
Happy movie watching!
