Happy Death Day 2U (2019)


This a Covid-19 2020 minireview!

“We’re scientists. We solve the problem.” – Ryan Phan

Number of Times Seen – 1 (10 Sep 2020)

Brief Synopsis – Continues the events of the previous film where the next day is once again relived over and over.

Bottom Line – Such a fun sequel that tales the ideas of the first film and builds on them. The way that they seem to parody numerous other films in the time travel/warp genre helps make this even more enjoyable to watch. The cast is mostly pretty unknown yet they are able to make things so much fun to watch especially when they must repeat certain events throughout the film.  The concept is great and works so well especially when it is able to answer questions that were left unanswered in the first film. Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Like in the first film where Carter announces the story bearing similarities to the plot of Groundhog Day, he establishes the similarities with this sequels’ plot to Back to the Future Part II (1989). There are also some small nods to the film, like the wood chipper being from “Biff’s Tree Removal”, and also a clock tower scene. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (7/10)
