Quick Review:  I have no idea why the reviewers are being so hard on this film.  I thought it was hilarious.  I even hate Barbra Streisand and I still enjoyed it.  I think this is a situation where the first film has been elevated in people's memories higher than it perhaps deserves and the all star cast apparently didn't blow everyone away as expected.  I loved the first film and thought it was one of the funniest films of 2000, but this one was no less funny.  Perhaps people are getting sick of Ben Stiller.  I love him but honestly, he was in like 8 movies in 2004.  The movie is doing great at the box office so obviously no one is paying attention to the reviewers so that's good.  It's a very funny film.  Go see it if you haven't already.
