It appears little effort has been put into making this sequel, as it relies predominantly on Hart’s manic behaviour juxtaposed with Cube’s stonefaced expression, which one could safely assume the first one already did.
Enjoyment of this film also depends on how much of a fan one is of Hart’s comedic style; I quickly discovered it is not my cup of tea.

The box office success in America of this sequel would undoubtedly lead to a trilogy, but I do not think I will take another ride along with these two.
