Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Classic comedy with frequent sex and drug references."
‑ Brian Costello, Common Sense Media
"Contains possibly the best William Shatner performance ever committed to celluloid."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
"it works largely on our fond memories of the first movie"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
"Less hilarious than its predecessor, but still a hundred or so laughs."
‑ Steve Crum,
"Inferior to the original, but enough jokes hit their marks to make it worthwhile."

"The only significant difference between the storyline of this film and the original is that this one takes place upon a spaceship headed toward the moon."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Apollo Guide
"Without the ZAZ team, it loses everything that made the original a classic."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"Does manage to deliver a few jokes of its own, but this sequel is nothing but a pale retread of a true classic. Nice to see all the old faces, though."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
