C.H.U.D. II: Bud the Chud

C.H.U.D. II: Bud the Chud ★★½

If there’s ever been a film that screams “How did this get made?!” C.H.U.D. II: BUD THE CHUD is certainly it. In case you didn’t know, this is so far removed from the original film in style and tone that I find it hard to believe this started life as a legit sequel. Peppered with fun bit parts for several recognizable character actors, a few actual laughs, and a plot that ultimately just wears you down into submission - C.H.U.D. II is far more enjoyable if you go along with it and allow yourself to be locked into it’s dumb-dumb wavelength. 

The pool scene climax is a real highlight and actually kind of reminded me of that scene in IT FOLLOWS. Both moments are equally silly, but only one of these films knows it. 

Keep an eye out for a random cameo from Robert England looking like he accidentally walked on set and they just grabbed a camera and started shooting.
