Having seen this movie once before I was excited to watch it again. I remembered enjoying the dialogue, characters, and uniqueness of the plot. However, it is not good. It really isn't. This is a bad movie. It doesn't capture my attention, I'm bored, the dialogue though good, isn't enough. Perhaps this is the perfect movie for hopeless romantics who have nothing better to do than watch sappy movies. For a romantic comedy this movie leans far too much towards the romantic and far to little towards the comedy. The awkward interactions and revealing moments, the silences that say so much are all very real, but am I having a good time watching this? No. Will I come away from this with anything? No. The only reason I can understand someone watching this is because they have recently had their heart broken or are trying to get into a girls pants. As far as the former is concerned-this movie won't mend your broken heart. And for the latter-she decided before the movie started whether or not you were getting any, so don't waste your time or hers.
This movie definitely let me down. It wasn't taken seriously, even by the actors. I'm sure it was very fun to make and I might have even enjoyed it a little bit if I didn't know the original existed. Granted, the first is a very hard act to follow, but it could have been much better. The first half of the movie I wanted to walk out, though the second was somewhat redeeming it just wasn't enough. I think Troy Duffy should give me my money back and start making music again. He had a brilliant idea with the first one and got very lucky making it so good, the second it is clear he was just having a good time with the cast and basking in the nostalgia of the first. I'm sorry, but this movie just isn't good.
those of you who think this is a bad movie either think that because you have terrible taste or you think you're too cool for ridiculous humor. If you've seen this movie you know it's funny. If you haven't seen this movie then you should rent it and you will enjoy it, but if you want to enjoy it more rent it and get yourself a fifth of wild turkey while your out... then you can have a great part. P.S. Paul walker is baller, even and especially in this movie. Phil and Stu deedle are two surf bums who end up working at a national park and dealing with a prarie dog infestation. They have to portray themselves as experts in the field so that they can keep their cover, escape from a crazy ex-camp leader and continue to receive free lodging. How does this premise not even make you laugh just by the sound of it? This movie is also awesome because it has insane slang from the ninety's that will crack you up
