Well this is one odd movie. I don’t know if I hated it, loved it, or what. All I know is that I laughed a lot.
Now I never saw the first one (I’m guessing the story isn’t important) but for the most part they do flash back enough during the beginning to tell you what happened. Again though the story isn’t important. Where this film really shines is in the large amounts of gore and nudity there is. I think that is the main draw. Not only are there large amounts of full frontal male and female nudity there is also a lot of over the top gore. Sure it looks corny but in a film where you can tell they aren’t taking the making of the film seriously it works in it’s favor. This film does have some over the top scenes including a sex scene that will be in your memory for quite some time as it is just so over the top and funny.
Now the cast list for this movie is great in my opinion. A lot of well known faces along with other actors from tv and movies round out the cast and play their roles well. I do feel like David Koechner’s role is pretty much the same role that he always plays. The standout role though is David Hasselhoff and Ving Rhames. Hasselhoff plays a great role where he for the most part mocks himself and what he has done. He actually has more screen time than I expected. Ving Rhames returns from the first one and the small scene he has is a real show stopper while also being funny.
Now with how much nudity there is and the gore this isn’t a film made for everyone but if you give it a try you will enjoy it. I just don’t know how many times you will enjoy it but the first view is a good time. It’s worth the watch.
