So, this superhero franchise has struggled and only a few become fan favorites. I enjoyed the first Shazam and I enjoyed this one as well. Humor with a couple of #avenger jabs, lol, and a good look in Dolby. A trilogy is not expected since D.C comics has totally reorganized and rebooting actors. There’s a big surprise towards the end!!! There are 2 end credit scenes with the first one worth waiting for; the second I didn’t get at all and nothing will probably come it now.
I’m not knowledgeable of this DC character (or sidekicks) so I had no preconceived expectations. I was pleasantly surprised that is was funny and entertaining! I liked the mentions and no-face cameos of other DC characters but it would have been better had they shown faces (I realize Batman is up for a re-cast from Ben and a possible re-cast of Superman yet Aquaman seems solid and no cameo from Jason). I saw a very early screening, therefore, I didn’t see it in IMAX or Dolby. Worth checking out. NOTE: there are two end credit scenes to enjoy.

What happens when a boy and a girl meet and a dream is discussed? On election night 2016, a man and a woman meet, things become heated a few times in this long evening. It’s a poignant love story yet it’s slow…and probably meant to be.

Here’s a Summer sequel that’s hot! I so enjoyed the continuation of the characters of this movie. Lots more jokes that the original film that is depicted from Steve Harvey’s book’ “Act Like A Lady – Think Like A Man”. All of the actors are back to show us how their relationships have developed. There’s a sort of music video that the girls perform to the old school song “Poison” by BBD (Bell, Biv, DeVoe) that is very funny! NOTE: There’s an end credit scene…WAIT TILL THE SCREEN GOES BLACK. I understand there’s a soundtrack that primarily features Mary J. Blige (I loved the soundtrack from the first film).
