Thoughts

Was a bit nervous going into this one because the first movie, whilst fun wasn’t exactly a classic. And it’s about parenting which is probably one of my least favourite subjects. But it’s a Christmas movie, and we’re on a roll, so hey!

Actually, I think it was better than the first movie, funny and quite moving, and although it was entirely predictable, that didn’t seem to make a difference. I didn’t really enjoy the characters of the older generation, but I did like the chaos and additional tension they caused, so in the end, it was worth it.
