Ridiculousness. Super-ridiculousness. Mega-ridiculousness. Meta-ridiculousness. Love. Fireworks.

Because they put the pedal to the metal and go full, screaming, bedazzled monkeypants crazy from beginning to end, it sort of works.

Kind of hilarious. Kind of silly. Mostly a game of spot-the-cameo players and teasing about what moment a certain chainsaw will come in contact with certain bodies.

As hard as we howled at the ghastliness being projected on the wall above us, I didn't see anyone at the Sharknado party who was giving the film his or her full attention, especially after the first 30 minutes.

Syfy's made-for-TV movie Sharknado 2: The Second One is just as bad as the original Sharknado, which means it's just as good. It's the perfect way to kill two hours with one's brain in sleep mode.

In other words, if you're in the Sharknado fan club, you'll probably like the sequel. If not, you'll probably ignore it and watch something else. In either case, enjoy.

Unfortunately, the movie doesn't really do anything truly memorable with all these [guest stars], as if just getting these actors to show up were enough. That's largely true of the sharks as well.

While I kind of love the opening sequence, Sharknado 2 drags for a large chunk after that and, honestly, doesn't have enough insane action to really say it completely works as B-movie escapism.

The overall effect isn't quite intoxicating, and it might be better if you're intoxicated in one form or another.

Aside from a few clever moments, the creatives haven't managed to bridge the gap between blood-spurting exploitation and winking genre parody.
