Adam Graham, The cinematic equivalent of an IKEA dresser put together in a rush. It’s slightly askew, and there’s a gap between drawers, but it’ll still hold your T-shirts.
Dana Schwartz, Goosebumps 2 isn’t a movie, exactly — it’s a piñata of effects posing as a movie. By the end, there’s nothing to do but sweep up the pieces.
