Waited till the Holiday madness subsided to see this movie. I think it was as good as if not better than the first. The book, of course, was better. A lot of material was left out, but, all in all I was highly entertained. Jennifer Lawrence was the highlight of the movie. Can't think of any other actress to play the part. This is a movie I would go to see a second time. I can't say that about many other films.
