Happy Death Day 2U is a 2019 horror-comedy film directed and written by Christopher Landon. It is the sequel to the 2017 film, Happy Death Day. The movie revolves around Tree Gelbman (Jessica Rothe), a sorority girl who gets stuck in a time loop where she repeatedly relives the same day. In the first film, Tree had to solve the mystery of her own murder on her birthday in order to break the loop.
In Happy Death Day 2U, Tree discovers that the time loop isn't over yet. However, this time the loop is different. She wakes up on her birthday, but she is not in her own reality. She finds herself in an alternate universe where things are not the same as she remembers them. Her boyfriend Carter (Israel Broussard) is dating her roommate, and her mother is still alive.
As Tree tries to figure out what is going on, she realizes that it was her own scientific invention that caused the time loop. Her friend Ryan (Phi Vu) and his nerdy science team were experimenting with a quantum reactor that could create a wormhole. When they accidentally turn it on during a school event, the reactor causes a time loop that affects Tree and the people around her.
Tree must work with her friends and family to try to fix the reactor and stop the loop. However, as she relives the same day over and over, she starts to realize that the alternate reality is not so bad. She sees how her decisions affect the people around her and begins to question what she truly wants.
Jessica Rothe delivers a great performance, once again playing the witty and sassy Tree. Broussard and Vu also do a great job playing their respective roles. The supporting cast is also strong, with standout performances from Ruby Modine as Tree's roommate and Rachel Matthews as the conniving sorority leader Danielle.
The film is a perfect blend of horror and comedy, delivering a fresh take on the Groundhog Day-style time loop. The humor is sharp and well-timed, and the scares are well-executed. The movie also explores some deeper themes, such as the importance of family, friendship, and making the right choices.
Overall, Happy Death Day 2U is a fun and entertaining film that offers a different take on the time loop genre. It's a worthy successor to the first film, and it expands on the original concept in interesting and unexpected ways.
Happy Death Day 2U is a 2019 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 39 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.2 and a MetaScore of 57.
