I thought the first movie was cute and not that bad, but the squeal takes the first film and takes a big dump on it.

I prefer the original over this sequel but I was glad to see that most of the cast is back from the first film, like the always amusing Heather Matarazzo. If it wasn’t for the good intentions of this film to entertain, I would have given this a one star out of four because of its incredibly weak script. I was at awe of how much slapstick they had here because the first movie had significantly less of it. The first movie actually had a story and this one does not. I know that the filmmakers are trying to appeal to the younger audiences, mostly girls, but there’s a way to keep older audiences interested without resulting to sex and violence, as most Pixar films had demonstrated. While the first film had magic because of how Mia finds out that she’s a princess, this one lacks the magic …
