No, this episode was definitely better than the first. I don't think it's ever going to be a top fave of mine, but it's watchable. The bunny-hat kid is growing on me. (What was it? "She likes to mess with people she thinks are stupid.") And very much liked where it dropped into The Shining bar scene.
Gotta agree with the majority this time. This was MILES better than the first episode, although some of the same problems still exist for me. The sampling from the boy for his class bit was pretty great.

Now, I saw this movie with five girls who thought it was great, so your mileage may vary....but I thought it was just so-so. The big problem I had was with the two main characters, both of which I didn't think were likeable.
