What's at work here is the comedy law of diminishing returns: if you tell the same jokes over and over and over again, they become less and less and less funny.

Somehow this sequel never reaches the heights of inspired lunacy that made the original so memorable, and there are no extended set-pieces that work as well as the first film's opening battle with America's enemies or the climactic baseball game.

Nielsen's secret is that he does almost nothing, and certainly nothing he seems to think is funny.

Nielsen combines B-movie earnestness, exuberant mugging, and a trouper's slightly desperate cheerfulness: he turns this rather alarming character into a sweet, ebullient lunatic -- albeit one who's hell on innocent bystanders.
