"National Treasure: Book of Secrets" -- * * 1/2

If you're looking forward to "National Treasure: Book of Secrets," you'll like it. It's the first film's equal in almost every way. It's just as ridiculous, just as fun, just as bloated, just as cornball, just as watchable, just as unmemorable. It's not deep, realistic or particularly exciting, but it's a fairly enjoyable sit and there are certainly a lot worse ways you could choose to spend two hours in a movie theater. That said, if THIS is your first choice of what to see this weekend, there's really no helping you. Extra points for Ed Harris making for a more engaging villain than Sean Bean, but demerits for having Helen Mirren follow up her Oscar win with a movie where she's asked to jump from one big rock to another.
