7:21 “It’s just a widespread yet credible rumour.”
10:58 C’est Magnifique Corporation.
13:50 It works because she’s self-aware enough to know ‘god that woman wears a lot of pink.’
18:58 “Time to legislate.”
26:18 It’s incredible how little colour there is in government! I mean, in clothes and also diversity.
29:28 The doorman better save the day. I love a useful doorman.
34:21 More official documentation should be pop up.
35:35 Oh no, she’s downgraded to a Windows laptop.

49:56 Ergh, the murky world of democracy.
55:56 Was not expecting Sally Field to be the bad guy in this film.
59:55 “We even put little hearts over the eyes.”
1:03:22 The purple pom-poms though!
1:09:30 “This isn’t just about one animal, it’s about all the animals.”
1:13:06 Facial broke the case this time, not a perm.
1:24:24 Friends reference!
1:25:53 “I know that if we lose our voice, or if we let those who speak on our behalf compromise our voice, well then this country is in for a really bad haircut.”
1:28:47 You can’t run a democracy via Snap Cup!

Thoughts

Was worried this was going to ruin the first one, which was a delight, but thankfully it didn’t. It wasn’t as good, I’m not about to argue that, the story didn’t hold quite as much weight as the first one, but it held its own. It felt a bit more difficult to root for Elle in this scenario - of course animal testing should be banned but it’s hard not to laugh at someone taking them on because they want to invite their dog’s mother to their wedding.

However, it was a feel good story, with some laughs, some high drama, a lot of pink and plenty of fun. So no complaints.

Rating: 3 / 5
