It was exactly what I was expecting really. Watched it on a Tuesday so it was half price anyways. Had a few decent scenes that I thought were pretty funny, but overall a very watered down version of the first.
I found how it was identical to the first one somewhat charming, almost as if all the actors were in on the joke or something. However some jokes were simply not as good, and Ed Helms got annoying to some extent.
So I just watched an old Andy Lau, Hong Kong film called "Magic Crystal" its from 1986 on Channel 516 (the LSTimes channel)
its basically an Indiana Jones esque film with martial arts
the really odd thing is though... its almost like Spielberg watched it before making KOTCS
The russians are the enemy also
there's also a lost city raided @ the end which has an Alien/ship in it
instead of the Crystal Skull though its a big piece of Jade and the Jade is needed to be taken to the Alien to resurrect him so he can fly home
the jade also talks telepathically to the person wielding it
but instead of the site being in south america its greece
so many OTHER similarities I just had to post it somewhere
and this HK flick is from 1986
someones description of the film on imdb
Looking to cash in on the popularity of Steven Spielberg's mega-hits E.T. and Raiders of the Lost Ark, Hong Kong schlockmeister Wong Jing directs this yarn about Andy who, along with buddies Pin-pin and Pancho ventures to Greece to find his long lost friend Shen. They soon discover Shen is being tailed both by the KGB and by Interpol after discovering some rare gems in an archaeological dig. After a unkindly series of events, Andy winds up back in Hong Kong with the stones, which, it turns out, is not gems but rather an alien life form.
