Cruising Bar 2 is a funny comedy that boasts a good story, effective laughs and a memorable cast. I really thought that this was one of the finest French comedies in a while. The cast do a fine job in their roles, and there are plenty of memorable moments on-screen. I really thought that the film was a well structured and must see comedy for fans of Quebec cinema, and French comedies as well. The film is not perfect, but it does overcome its flaws by being an original and highly engaging sequel to a Canadian cult hit. I haven't seen the original, so I can't compare. However this is an entertaining film from start to finish and the comedic material works very well in giving the viewer something truly special. Low budget comedies like this are simply wonderful to watch because the filmmakers put more effort into their films than most big studios that simply don't care about delivering great comedy. The lead actor Michel Côté is wonderful to watch on-screen and his comedic delivery is terrific and much more hilarious than many big comedians working in Hollywood. This is a well crafted film that is original, well acted and constantly funny. If you love these types of films, give it a shot, it is definitely worth seeing. Cruising Bar 2 is a rare example of a Quebec comedy that doesn't rely on a separatist message for its humor. This is a smart comedy that puts it above most comedies from the province. There are plenty of good elements to enjoy and there is something for everyone looking for a good laugh.

Not exactly like the first, but it's still funny.

They are back again cruising for women. It was not funnier as the previous one but a much happier ending for one character which he did not had in the first film.

Not as good as the first one but still good hearted.
Quebec classic

Très inférieur a la première version... Une suite pas vraiment nécéssaire !

The story continues 15 years later with The Peacock, Bull, Earthworm and Lion still trying to get it right in romance but batting zero every time. All four roles played by Michael Cote lacked a certain charm that the first Cruising Bar exuded especially with individual comedic role moments but there still managed to be many funny scenes with supporting actors and actresses. I was a little disappointed in seeing this film, but overall it was a decent sequel that will rid you the curiousity of what happens to this quirky bunch.

Michel Cote est complètement capote

Tres efficace et fidele au premier, un defi compte tenue de temps qui separe les deux. Le rythme aide a rendre les peripeties des differents personnages encore plus droles.

Vraiment inutile comme film. Meme pas drole. Le seul personnage qui a UN PEU d'interet, c'est le rouquin stupide. Sinon, il n'y a pas grand chose a voir! S'il vous-plait, financez des films comme "C'est pas moi j'le jure" ou encore "Memoire Affective"... mais pas ca!

Strange to see the rating on the sequel is less than the first. Frankly I thought they were both great and would go as far to say that the second was better.

I liked the prequel better. Somehow these characters are funnier and make for truer portraits in their natural habitat (the 80's).
December 27, 2008
Not as good as the original (I watched them both in succession) but still a lot of fun!

ressemble beaucoup au un et peut-etre un peu trop previsible par moment

Qui ose chialer contre Cruising Bar 2 ??? Le public l'a demandé pendant des années, peu importe ce qu'il aurait recu ca n'aurait pas été à la hauteur des attentes. Ceci dit, le film est très bon, la suite logique du premier. Tous les personnages sont aussi sublimes et les situations sont encore cocasses et légères. Ce film est exactement ce qu'il devait etre, la suite de Cruising Bar 1. J'ai été ni décu ni surpris, simplement satisfait.
