**It's not a bad movie, there are much worse out there, and it's good to watch as a family, but it's not as good and as fresh as its predecessor.** After the success of the initial film, it was difficult that there wasn't a follow-up that would somehow try to extract some more money for the benefit of the studios. And as is often the case, the quality of this film is not as good as the original film. In this film, Mollie and James, now married, are expecting a second child, who will be a girl, who they call Julie, and who is born by cesarean section. The film follows the beginning of the relationship between the two brothers, Julie and Mikey, with all the natural conflicts between the two. At the same time, we accompany the adult couple in the midst of a relationship crisis, caused in part by James' bad relationship with his in-laws and by the need to increase the family income, now that there are two babies at home. As in any romantic comedy, everything is bound to end well, between several twists where the comedy, by the way, is predictable and much of what we saw in the first film is recycled and returns, without the initial glow. This is not to say that the film is totally bad. In fact, it's a satisfying comedy that gives us enough to not give up our time for wasted. It's the comparison with what we saw earlier, in the original film, that knocks her down. The humor is still present, and it is not a tiresome film (the proof is in the fact that, thirty years later, it is still present on the TV channel grid, occasionally). And there's no doubt that it's an enjoyable movie to watch as a family. The cast can once again count on the pleasant and well-executed appearances of John Travolta and Kirstie Alley. They also don't seem as committed as they did in the first film, Alley in particular, but they give a pretty satisfying performance. Bruce Willis and Roseane Barr give voice to the two babies and do it in a fun and believable way. Technically, it's as bland and uninteresting as the first film: the cinematography doesn't bring anything new or particularly notable, and the sets and costumes are pretty much what we'd expect to find. The soundtrack is good enough.
