Thoughts

If I’m honest, I was kinda dreading watching this - I really loved the first movie, and a sequel is always a worry, plus they’ve thrown Bono into the mix for this one and he’s not… well, has he ever acted before is the first question. Anyway, nervous. But I needn’t have worried, it was wonderful!

Just like the first one it was nothing too groundbreaking - adorable animals singing popular songs, but it was all the extra bits and bobs around it that made it great. Good jokes, lovely side-stories, a way of everything coming together by the end in a satisfying and not-too-hokey way. Plus, hold on to your hats, Bono was actually really good! If I hadn’t known it was him, I probably wouldn’t have known it was him.

Loved it, already want to watch it again.
