3:27What the hellsticks is going on?
6:50Don’t you just hate it when plan b is to jump out of a window.
8:32That is potentially worse than the helicopter flying through the Channel Tunnel.
11:48I like “now they work for me” as an explanation. Pretttty vague.
14:19Rydell High?? Wait a minute.
23:09Jesus, anyone who’s anyone is in this movie. I don’t understand it.
26:29“You always fall for the bad guy.”
30:03Pink now??
33:46Love that she’s doing bike tricks in the middle of a mission.
41:36I don’t… is the reference because they’re nuns? Then I wouldn’t say Lonely Goatherd was the right tune.
50:36There’s women being awesome and then there’s women jumping out of a statue naked for no reason.
52:16Poor Justin’s accent wandering all over the place. Scotland, Ireland, same thing, right?
58:17Dude just walked through a wall of fire though.
1:02:58Trust Matt Le Blanc and John Cleese to steal the show.
1:11:13“This is some bullshit.” Never has there been a truer word spoken in a movie.
1:17:23She should know better than that, to leave them without checking.
1:24:31It’s hard to take him seriously as a bad guy when he looks just like Marti Pellow.
1:35:12How did they get rid of their injuries in time for the premiere?

Thoughts

Right, so we watched this because the first one was okay, it has Demi Moore added to the fun, and we wanted to check it off the list before watching the reboot with Elizabeth Banks. We’re completionists like that.

Oof, I really wish we hadn’t bothered. It was so bad. It felt like I was living inside a teenage boy’s head - women in skimpy clothes, in cartoon-style fights, with bikinis and fast cars and explosions and a story that makes no sense. Far too many famous people kept popping up for no apparent reason, and it was just… awful. The music was occasionally good but mostly bad as it would pop up to highlight a super cheesy moment. Flashdance, when they’re welding, etc. Once or twice is okay, but every single time.

This is definitely one of those films where you end it thinking about the time you’ve wasted watching it.
