I've seen it and I liked it a lot. I had already seen the first one about ten times or so, so I expected the second one to be as good as the first one.
Yes, the cinema tickets are really expensive in my country, above all now that we have euro. I remember that six years ago, a cinema ticket cost me 400 pessetas (2 dollars). Now, with euro, they cost me 4.80€ (5$). There are even more expensive theaters where the tickets cost you 5.20€ (a little more than 5 bucks).
