Plot:

After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt and Jenko when they go deep undercover at a local college.

Review:

That movie had no business being 112 minutes. Too long. I was barely holding on by the end. Also the jokes about it being a sequel got old fast. I knew they were coming, every review I read mentioned them, but holy cow.

Credits were possibly the best part of the movie.

2/5

Review:

Loved how this movie looked. Just loved it. Brought back so many memories and the detail was great. There were thumb prints on the shiny parts, teeth marks, and normal wear and tear from everyday use. The details were a subtle clue that more was going on and I liked that. I liked that we weren’t hit over the head with innuendo that there was more than meets the eye. It just sort of happened and didn’t take away from the animated parts.

The story wasn’t quiet as awesome as the look but it was still enjoyable, just a bit predictable. It’s a kids movie though so it gets a pass.

4.5/5

Review:

Ok that humping scene was hilarious.

“You’re in too deep man.”

I’ve never understood why people would want to go back to high school. Just don’t get it. My high school years weren’t horrible, it’s not like I’m scarred for life over what happened there, but they weren’t awesome either. I have no desire to go back to that time, I have no regrets, nothing I would want to do over, so that part of the movie didn’t resonate with me.

Overall the movie was pretty funny. Loved the reveal at the end. This movie knew what it was and didn’t try to be anything more.

3/5
