This film is basically just ridiculous nonsense. I had a ton of fun.

Jessica Rothe handles all of these transitions well, the horror, the action heroey stuff, they sentimental stuff, she's great.
March 1, 2019
Along the lines of other recent inexpensive genre efforts that behave more like franchise blockbusters by building out their lore and doubling down on their nerdiness.
February 17, 2019
One of those efficiently lazy sequels that by turns bores you to death and induces chuckles.
February 16, 2019
It is instead that rarity - a sequel that is both better than the original and manages to retroactively improve that movie.
February 15, 2019
Rothe mugs and emotes for all she's worth, which is something, but her effort only highlights the desultory character of everything around her.
February 15, 2019
It's exuberant fun, in the main, with a keen sense of its silliness. Marks off, though, for the clumsy lurches from cynical sci-fi to solemn weepy...and some cringeworthy stereotyping
February 15, 2019
Like its predecessor, the movie has a broad sentimental streak, but the sentiment feels more thoughtful and heartfelt this time around.
February 14, 2019
Combining a fun and silly genre approach to the concept of dying with an earnest consideration of its real-life consequences, Happy Death Day 2U is simply a matter of life and death, both literally and figuratively speaking.
February 14, 2019
Put Happy Death Day 2U together with its predecessor, Happy Death Day, and you could easily call the pair Dumb and Dumber.
February 14, 2019
Jessica Rothe as Tree is still an appealing presence. But the film is overstuffed with unfunny self-parodying gore slapstick, half-felt sentimentality and semi-meta sci-fi...
February 13, 2019
Stalk-and-kill movies bear some resemblance to classic farces, but no horror movies have taken the similarities as far as Happy Death Day and its busier, just-as-fun sequel, Happy Death 2 U.
February 13, 2019
By the time the climax arrives, "Happy Death Day 2U" has lost its thread, in an increasingly busy "Scooby Doo"-style adventure that, sadly, only points to the possibility of a "Happy Death Day 3-peat."
February 13, 2019
In all the world-jumping and talk of quantum physics, a bit of the fun of the original film is lost.
February 13, 2019
A movie can only be a pleasant surprise once. So it goes with "Happy Death Day 2U," the inevitable, and perhaps inevitably disappointing, follow-up to the 2017 hit "Happy Death Day."
February 13, 2019
The uninventive Happy Death Day 2U can neither sustain nor recreate the charms of the first film by recycling its ideas.
February 13, 2019
Taking over screenwriting duties from the original's Scott Lobdell and straining the silliness past breaking, director Christopher Landon mounts a sequel that forgets to be scary.

February 12, 2019
The happy surprise of Happy Death Day 2U is that it does find ways to tweak the formula of its predecessor, to break the cycle of franchise redundancy.
February 12, 2019
The "Happy Death Day" franchise isn't going to revolutionize filmmaking. But the uplifting vibes - and occasionally absent slasher - haven't come close to overstaying their welcome.
February 12, 2019
Fantasies, no matter how far-fetched, can work as long as they conform to fiction's laws of internal logic, but this script makes no effort to deal with the fault lines which show up at various stages during its convolutions.
