This was a disappointment compared to the original. Why is it that sequels often try to do similar things, similar plots, similar jokes? Not necessary! A sequel to me must be original to some degree, too. The beginning was promising, the middle part had enormous lengths and very bad scripting and the end was bland. I loved the characters though. Believable like the original. However, Poindexter seemed much too talkative and sometimes even made sense, almost as if Milton Waddams went to a speech-therapist. I did not like the setting at all and the hotel scenes were very far fetched.

All in all rather disappointing. Too bad.
