Movie Critics
…unapologetically stupid sequel… The real bad guy is Wayans, the star and writer, for assaulting us with witless, gratuitous visuals and pointlessly offensive gags. …
Stephan Lee, Entertainment Weekly
…as inept and puerile as its predecessor… technically inept, damn near plotless, and mired in humor so puerile, ugly and regressive that this critic witnessed a gaggle of preteen theater-hoppers groan with exasperation at several of the running sex jokes. …
Andrew Barker, Variety
…More of the same, no matter how lame. …
Justin Lowe, The Hollywood Reporter
…Already the franchise displays a sputtering exhaustion. … The tone grows ever more shrill and desperate. …
Andy Webster, The New York Times
…Horror-movie spoof is so lazy, it practically parodies itself… it’s sexist in the same lazy, thoughtless way that makes the whole film feel like circling a drain.
David Berry, National Post
…The film’s no-holds-barred humor can best be described as “In Living Color” without television’s FCC oversight. …
Martin Tsai, Los Angeles Times
…Profanity/nudity extreme…
…In the running for worst film of the year… The story is a sprawling mess, and it feels much, much longer than 87 minutes…
Jenni Miller,
…It’s basically a tightly packed pomegranate of boring vulgarity, repackaging the lamest racist caricaturing…
John Semley, The Globe and Mail
