Very quick review here as I’m buried in other stuff:
“Where did he get a brown pencil from?”
Plot-in-a-nutshell: the food from the first film is taking over the Island – can Flint (Bill Hader) and co save their home?
See it if you like: great animation, funny stories and incredibly bad puns
Went with Little Mister (5) and Little Miss (12) for this one. All three of us enjoyed it, which is a good thing. Every bit as good as the first and follows on very closely from it. However, it’s not just the same film over again. The humour is subtly different and the jokes far worse. In a groan-inducing way.
Most of the verbal humour is based on puns, something I grew up with and which kids these days don’t seem to get. I put it down to a lack of reading, but hey. Every little helps. However, there are a couple of slightly more off-colour lines which really make you giggle – such as the one quoted above. It’s near the start of the film and brushed over so quickly that you could miss it.
The voice cast is great, the animation is superb, the characters are wonderful, the story is engaging… simply put, this is a very, very enjoyable film for all the family. The action doesn’t let up and it’s bright – this will keep the younger ones happy. Older kids will appreciate the story and jokes. Adults will lose themselves in the sharp dialogue and clever animation.
Great film. See it.
