While I did get a little bored as it follows the typical story line of learning to work together, it was still an enjoyable movie. I appreciate some of the lessons you can take away such as "You have to work for what you want," "Don't give up just because the first way didn't work out," "You can't judge a book by its cover," "Even people you may not like at first meeting can end up being great friends." Great talking points for after the movie. Your kids will laugh and you will too.You will probably appreciate all the little things that tie this movie into the 1st one. I wouldn't spring for the 3D as its not like a whole lot jumps out at you but thats me.
