House Party 2

The crowd's the same, but the atmosphere's different in this disappointing followup to low-budget hit House Party. Absence of filmmakers Reggie and Warrington Hudlin, who've moved on to other things, is keenly felt in a film lacking the original's smarts and cinematic flair.

The crowd’s the same, but the atmosphere’s different in this disappointing followup to low-budget hit House Party. Absence of filmmakers Reggie and Warrington Hudlin, who’ve moved on to other things, is keenly felt in a film lacking the original’s smarts and cinematic flair.

Debut directors Doug McHenry and George Jackson (New Jack City producers) trace the continuing misadventures of rap team Kid ‘N’ Play (Christopher Reid, Christopher Martin) as they tackle life after high school.

Kid has lost his father (the late Robin Harris) and plans on going to college, but Play is set on pursuing a record contract dangled by a shady promoter (fashion model Iman).

Unfortunately, pic relies heavily on vulgarities and no-brainer plot twists. Whoopi Goldberg cameos as a nightmarish college disciplinarian in a dream scene.
