Repeat of first film lacks charm. Not for kids.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that this movie has explicit sexual references and situations including prostitution and a pregnancy scare, very strong language, a great deal of drinking and smoking, hallucinogenic mushrooms, a character who is a drug dealer, and a lot of very irresponsible behavior handled in a light-hearted fashion with not much by way of consequences. There is some comic violence.

what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about why it was hard for Bridget to trust Mark's feelings for her. They could also talk about the problems Bridget encountered in Thailand.

Top Critic Reviews

Fresh:

- Luke Buckmaster, In Film Australia, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Fresh: It's testament to Zellweger's likeability and skill that the film is still enjoyable, but it lacks the element of surprise.

A decent follow up that blends seamlessly from the first. Much more of the same really, with all the same main characters from the first. It has the same type of humour as the first to, maybe not quite as good as the original but not that far off. If you like the first one give this a go.

Warning spoilers! Second part, she gets her man, ends up in a Thai prison, loses her man, gets him back again. Fave scene - fighting in the fountain. Hilarious! Great cast.
