A wholly superior sequel, and I think what sets this apart from the first outing is the clear sense that the writers are really having fun with this. I don't think any character here comes out spotless (least of all Batman, whose insecurities are exploited for maximum laughs). The villains are paid more attention (specifically Luthor and Gorilla Grodd), but it's all silly. In the end, the big set piece is one disastrous beach day. That's the kind of inanity that makes this so fun.
