It pains me to say it
I thought before watching the 2nd episode I'd watch this first.
I really don't like saying it to a fellow MG fan, but I didn't like it much. It was slow-paced and nearly an identical copy of the intro. While I did get a few small laughs out of the jokes, I had a hard time understanding some of the dialogue, you needed more subtitles.
But if it's your first movie then I'll get that go, my first movies weren't exactly award winning either. I still have high hopes for the 2nd part.
