Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

Surfs Up 2: Wave Mania—average to good entertainment fare—replaces Shia LeBeouf’s voicing of Cody Maverick with Jeremy Shada’ voice. The sequel contains more surfing scenes than its prequel and incorporates great voices such as Jon Heder, John Cena, Mark Calaway, Paul Levesque, Vince McMahon, and Saraya Jade Bevis. It does not have the same entertainment value as its prequel, but still deserves a watch.
