The Rutles 2 - Can't Buy Me Lunch Reviews
December 2, 2011
As a die hard Rutle fan, and the creator of the Rutles Wiki, inwas very excited to see this film, thinking it would be a masterpiece. However, I was disappointed to find it ruined by an over amount of sex jokes, bad cameos, and poor scripting. It was hard to watch, let alone in one setting. In other words, this was a disappointing film. I really think that if it wasn't for a few keyless bad scenes, it would have been pretty good, but the bad scenes ruin it.

I was very disappointed with this. Not only did it completely end up screwing up the plot from the original film, but it was basically a cheap clipshow, or less. Pass on this one.

Dumb imitation of The Beatles.

Not as funny as the original, some funny parts and good songs though.

Disappointing, see the first one instead. This one is a lot of old footage. Basically it is just a cash grab.

Eric Idle and his musical friends return in this sequel to one of the funniest mockumentaries of all time, and in the process lose all the magic that made the first film so fresh and funny. None of the original actors (apart from Idle) return, with the band themselves appearing only in recycled footage and outtakes from the first film. Most of the new material here consists of interviews with celebrities (including David Bowie, Carrie Fisher, Jewel, Bonnie Raitt, Robin Williams, Tom Hanks, and Steve Martin) professing their love of the fictitious group. (An inspired exception is Billy Connolly, who only has harsh things to say about the band.) There are some mild chuckles sprinkled throughout, and a few new Rutle songs on the soundtrack, but overall this pale imitation just tries much too hard, with forced humor that doesn't match the original. Not terrible, but disappointing in its over-eagerness.
