Peter and crew are back again and just as wacky and funny as they were the first time around. It is another episode that will keep the kids laughing and does just enough to keep the parents entertained as well.
As with the first film, this one is filled with physical comedy and silly hijinks. If you or your children are fans of cartoon humor, you will find this movie to be hilarious. Nearly every scene ends in some form of chaos.
The downside to this film is that some of the jokes are done so often that they get old in a hurry. I found myself thinking, "Ok, we get it. Move on," a lot more often than I would have liked. Aside from that, the movie is fun, funny, and exciting.
It is the kind of movie that will have the kids laughing the whole time, and they will sit through the whole thing. I was in a theater with about 40 kids and I only saw two or three leave for a bathroom break. If the film weren't that engaging it would have been a steady stream of people coming and going.
If you are looking for something to do with the whole family soon, you won't go wrong taking them all to see this. Everyone will have fun.
