Howcome these spells don't work on girlfriends?...
Harry and his friends are back at magic school, for their second year. Before long, unpleasant things begin happening, and some fingers are pointed in Harry's direction. So it is up to him and his mates to sort out the mystery again... Overseas reviews have been generally favourable, saying that this offers more of the same as the first movie, but is better done.
158 minutes, Parental Guidance (Violence) Mystery, Family movie.
Ian Douglas: Well, I missed the first one, so was a bit confused as to why everyone was in such awe of Harry. Anyway, the film is apparently a faithful adaptation of the novel, and I found it to be entertaining. The special effects are good. Both Violet and I thought that the PG V rating was a little generous, as there are some scenes which could frightenthe little ones. Note also the long running time if you are taking young kiddies. The film opened extremely strongly overseas, and will no doubt do the same here.
