I liked them both, but I liked #2 more because I just love Mini-Me. He's like a chihuaua, everytime I see him he makes me want to laugh. He's great in this one. I wish they wouldn't have brought Fat Basterd back though.
The toilet humor was bad in AP2, and it's right up there in this one also. But I do like how they resolve his charecter. Infact I like what they did with all the charecters. I heard that the DVD will have 30 minutes of deleted footage. Yipee!!
By the way, the opinion that they recycled jokes in AP2, and some in this one was not lost on the filmmakers. There is a really witty scene where they poke fun at the franchise for it. I was rolling in the isles.
Oh, I guess I should answer your question. It felt more like #1 to me, then #2. I know there is a joke there, somewhere.
MTFBWY and HH!!
