I pretty much feel the same way about this one as I did the first. The acting is fun, with Maggie Smith being the obvious highlight but it is such a slight film with too many unneeded subplots. It is definitely entertaining but it is the cinematic equivalent of cotton candy.

I enjoyed the first, but this was just dull. It was the cinematic equivalent of watching an uncut Oscars after party. The central plot is weak and barely focused on, while the minor characters and subplots were front and center. The actors are entertaining enough to watch, but the material they are given is bland and pedestrian. Pretty much a paid vacation for all involved.
