...humor seemed more strained and forced this time around. Less audience enthusiasm than before at the showing I attended.
WW wonders about the future of the franchise after this with a DP3 in doubt. The final scene with the new happy family sets the stage and at least a couple of additional sequels could be done. The real issue is should they be done. I'm guessing not.
...the scene where his legs were growing back was hilarious.
...it was just a variation of the scene in DP1 where he's growing his arm back. I liked better the X-Force interview scenes, esp when DP is arguing with lucky woman about whether or not luck is a super power. Or "The Vanisher's" demise. Or the banter betw "MetalMan" and DP as DP is being hauled back to the mansion in a bag. Or the scene where we're introduced to "Megasonic Teenage Warhead's new "friend" etc. OTOH, some of the spoofing was kinda flat. Didn't appreciate at all the spoof of "Fargo" where "acid vomit guy" meets his fate. There were other scenes like this.
As I noted, future sequels have been accommodated but I don't see how the frantic pace and novelty of the schtick can continue w/o becoming totally derivative and stale.
...was derivative of DP1 which was unique.
Sequels always have that to deal with.
But I thought DP2 was funnier.
