Pretty good better than the prequel

I think it's really good not better than the original but better than at least the last 3 no doubt it does have some scary images and stuff but not to menacing

This title has:

Great role models
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 10+

My favorite after 1 & 2.

Better than 4! Old-school PG-13, this would’ve been PG in the 80s.
