MPAA Rating:Rated PG for some crude humor and mild language.
Movie Release Date:2005
DVD Release Date:2006

As synthetically generic as a “Happy Holidays” card from your realtor, this by-the-numbers pratfall-fest is, at least, a teensy bit better than the 2004 original. I’ll explain why in a moment. But first, I want to say something about montages. […]
