The Short Take on the Pitches
The sequel, however, goes the way that the first film should have gone had it not overachieved where music is concerned. Here, we don’t have story. We don’t get development. And the songs are not thought out. Instead we get a string of non-sequiturs that are supposed to stand in for humor. We get montages of song clips that can fill out a soundtrack (or two) but aren’t interesting or developed. And, we get more crass, less class.
And a flashlight is not an elegant metaphore.
