No spoilers How do you rank this movie? Easy a 6.

Clint was a 2 in it. Cylde was a 10 in it. Adds up to 12 divide by 2 we get a 6.

Clint has never been a great actor. Thought Gran Tranino was his best job ever. He got shown up in this film by an Orangutan.

Clyde rules!!!!! So sad when I heard they where not the same Clydes in both of these 2 movies. This Clyde was tortured and killed by his trainer. We should have gotten the first Clyde to left turn him. See what its like to be abused.

Wish I had Clyde as a pet. That would be awesome
