A worthy successor to the sweet original. It was undoubtedly produced to cash in on the unexpected success of the first film, although Petrie and his screenwriters give us much more than a tacked-on climax to Ron Howard's story.

It continues the real and heartfelt story of the three men, their friends, women folk and families and the repercussions of what they did in the first film (and decide to do in this one) when they return home for one last look.

As well acted, produced and as magical in it's own little way as the original.
