Chris Pratt swore that "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" would be so good that everyone would get pregnant, but reviews suggested the film wasn't as virile as promised. There's another important measure, though: the Honest Trailers take.
Screen Junkies has at last made a "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" video for its popular satire series, and the superhero flick doesn't escape criticism. The video is quick to point out the movie's many jokes that didn't quite hit their mark. In fact, the narrator describes the jokes as not "as funny as the characters think they are," showing scene after scene of the superheroes laughing too uproariously.
As for the plot itself, the video calls the movie "an episode of 'My Two Dads' in space." Another apt comparison is made to the Fast and Furious movies. As proof, the Honest Trailer includes several clips of the characters focusing on how their friends are actually family.
Another highlight is when the death of Yondu Udonta (Michael Rooker) comes up. The narrator tries to come up with an equally tragic Marvel death and revisits the MCU's past. Let's just say there are a lot of characters who have died and come back.
Watch the Honest Trailer video below.
