I find this sequel more entertaining than the original.
Don't see all the hate for this one. Maybe it's too silly for some (ala Snake surfing and being a basketball master) but I thought it's over-the-top excess was what kept it running.

If it wasn't for the constant referencing of the original I could have sworn this was a remake. Same plot, same lead, different supporting characters in the same roles as the original's supporting cast.

Even those who didn't like the movie must admit the final 5 minutes is pure genius.

A shame the third installment isn't going to happen. Instead we have to sit through a lousy remake of the first film.


The only thing L.A. was missing, for me, was LVC.

I'm not a great fan of the sequel.

The third should be "Escape from Hollywood"; Snake escaping from a prison for degenerated, money eating, without inspiration, ghoul-birocrats.
