They’re back! Fifteen years later, the heroes from Cruising Bar may hardly have changed but the world around them most certainly has! For the Bull, reality is brutal. His wife of 30 years, sick of his infidelity, decides to show him the door. But the Bull, who has a positive outlook on life, isn’t so easily defeated and fights for his survival. The Lion too faces a break-up when his girlfriend leaves. All alone, he’s force to relearn the art of seduction. The Peacock, on the other hand, is trying to figure out his sexual identity with the help of a psychologist. As for the Earthworm, his long wait for a soul mate will, at last, be requited.

User Reviews: This sequel to the mildly amusing 1989 film tries to recapture the spirit of the original but, sadly, misses the mark by a long shot ! We meet the four losers again, almost 20 years older, and still trying very hard to seduce, with limited success.

The pacing of this movie is very slow and the structure does nothing to keep the viewer interested. We’re treated to a series of vignettes that are neither clever, nor funny. A crime for a comedy.

Michel Côté, again playing the 4 roles that made him a comedy superstar in Québec, somehow fails to raise the movie above it’s mediocre plot, something he did very well in the original movie.

If you make it pass the 1 hour mark, you could decide to either stop watching or keep going. Whatever you choose won’t make a big difference: you won’t find any reward by staying until the end, because by that time, you’ll have figured out that this sequel is nothing more than another boring movie.
