    Expanded the adventure for its animal characters
    Unneccesary sequel which was slightly better than we think. Will Gluck really expanded the adventure with 'heist' that led to greater self-awareness especially for its animal characters. In the end it's still about family though got less exciting human story.

    Improvement on the original
    This film takes the elements from the original film and improves on it in every way. It's incredibly self-aware about the reception and flaws of its predecessor, toning down the slapstick, exposing how irresponsible the mischief is, and focusing on the family dynamic. This is even lampshaded directly with the publishers of the book trying to make it more marketable, which ends up being a paradox. The characters realise that the changes are ruining the core heart of the story, yet the film itself actually incorporates the changes suggested by its villains. While clever and funny, this conflict would probably go over the heads of its child audience and it takes up too much screentime, as the other plot is very slow to start off. In a more compelling side story, Peter feels scrutinised and ostracised for his mayhem and ends up falling into even worse company. This has an emotional core that would appeal to more of the audience.
