I think Ace Ventura 2 is not only funnier than the first, but one of the funniest movies I've seen. It has a good mix of callbacks/new jokes in the same style. Bumblebee Tuna! Other notables: Wayne's World 2 (admirable). Airplane 2 (original is so iconic but like Ace2 it has a good mix of old/new) Evil Dead 2 (different genre, some would say, better result) What else? submitted by bdorman01 [link] [4 comments]
Helen Mirren was pretty persuasive playing Queen Elizabeth in “The Queen,” winning the best actress Oscar. But she may just have given an even more compelling performance as the English monarch for a terminally ill 10-year-old boy.
