The sequel. Or is it? Oh, it is? So where`s the pie?
Basically, this rarely funny comedy is just an excuse for having a sequel. Sure, it has some laughs, but basically it`s not a good movie.
The version on the disk is said to be "unrated", but don`t expect anything more than some very mild nudity.
Biggs, who`s suppose to be the lead actor, had obviously gained some weight (5-10 kilos, I`d say) and no longer looks "young and innocent".
The video transfer is good. There are no compression signs and the picture is clear of scratches and dust particles. But where`s the pie?
The DTS and DD 5.1 soundtracks are both good. While there are not that many sound effects in the movie, the surrounds are used during the loud music scenes (plenty of those).
The menus are animated with sound.
The extras include 4 (!!!) commentaries, a couple of behind the scenes featurettes, 7 deleted scenes, several funny outtakes, a music video, a best scene chart, a nice Easter egg and some very cool DVD-ROM features. Guys - pay attention to the preview. ;)
Bottom line - if you liked the original, you`d have no problems with this one.

This is a totally hilarious sequel which is as good as(if not better) than the original. Basically the movie is about moving on. The guys rent a summer home by the beach and basically have a wild time earning money. A fun summer movie with a great soundtrack.

The picture is clean, sharp and very colorful, bringing out summer on the screen. Nothing spectacular though nothing wrong.

The sound is great. I dont have DTS but the 5.1 is fab and brings the soundtrack to life.
The commentaries are great.(havent listened to all of them but did skip thru em all). Deleted scenes and outtakes were very good. There are some music vids and other stuff. Great value really.

An absolutely hilarious movie that is a must own.
