      Audience Member Better than 2/3 of the comedy movie trilogy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review uncle p Story/Screenplay: (2.5/5) At its core, a nice story that could be funny at times. There just wasn't enough story to fill a feature length film. Duration/Tempo: (2.5/5) At 1 hour and 40 minutes, it's a shorter than average movie that felt a bit longer. Needed to pick up the pace. Cast & Crew: (3/5) William Devane was very good and the kids could be funny, but there wasn't enough from the story to let anyone shine. Summary: (2.5/5) The story had potential, but was stretched too thin to help the cast or diminish the feeling that the film was getting long. A thumbs down. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Fun sequel, but misses the magic from the first film. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/16/20 Full Review scott m Not better than the first. But I always liked it. Many memorably scenes. The music is pretty good. Plus, I love most 70's movies anyway. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member William Devane & Jackie Earl Haley contribute memorable, meaningful, and relevant performances for any kid like me who grew up in the 70's. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member It's bad news for the Toros when the Bears make the trek to the famed Astrodome, where Kelly Leak reunites with his estranged father. The losses of Matthau and O'Neal definitely hurt the Bears franchise. Members of the Houston Astros (Cesar Cedeno!) make a brief appearance during film's memorable "Let Them Play" scene.

      Ruth Batchelor Los Angeles Free Press It's pure heart-pulling corn and the audience of grownups as well as children were applauding our hands off. Oct 22, 2019 Full Review Bernard Drew Gannett News Service The new movie suffers the fate of most sequels. We have the feeling that the best was told before and that these are the drippings and leftovers and not as cunningly arranged as the first time around. Jul 9, 2019 Full Review Ryan Cracknell Movie Views The comedic value of kids talking like a bitter pirate with hemorrhoids and smoking [was] played out mid-way through the first film.
