Summary: Tree Gelbman discovers that dying over and over was surprisingly easier than the dangers that lie ahead.
Check out my review for Happy Death Day. This will be a short review.
Jessica Rothe as Tree Gelbman. So, Tree is back. The movie doesn’t even start off with her and I was a little shocked because she’s what made the first one so fun. However, we do get back to her as the main character after the first 20 minutes or so. She’s still great though. She got out of the loop in the first one but something going wrong with science makes her go back into it again and just her reaction to it repeating is the best thing. Also, the deaths she goes through are hilarious and I love her reactions to waking up and everything. Jessica Rothe is so fun to watch that as the movie is no longer a “horror/thriller” she just makes for great humor and reactionary acting. She also handles the emotional moments that Tree goes through, particularly when it comes to Carter and her parents, I think were strong.
Israel Broussard as Carter Davis. Carter is the boy-next-door and picking up where we left off, Tree and Carter are basically together. However, something happens that forces them apart and the Carter in most of the movie, is the Carter she first met, the one who doesn’t know her. He’s a sweet guy and even though they’re not together, he still is always willing to help her solve her problems. Israel Broussard does that kind, unassuming guy who is secretly brave quite well. He’s very likable too and you root for him and Tree as well.
