I wasn’t expecting much when my son purchased this movie since 1) It is a sequel; and 2) It is sans the original star, Jim Carrey.
I was pleasantly surprised at the new storyline and the actors. Jamie Kennedy couldn’t have been more perfect for the starring role as cartoonist, Tim Avery. Bob Hoskins is hilarious in his cameo part as the mythical Odin. Alan Cummings brings depth to a rather undignified role as the protagonist.
I wouldn’t recommend this movie for families with very young children because of the moments of crude and suggestive humor and the spinning pace at which the animations sometimes move, which can be overstimulating. Families with older children (7+) will enjoy the action and humorous cultural references.
