For the most part I thought they were able to reference the first movie while letting the new story/characters do their own thing, but then the ending went way too far into nostalgia territory. The cameos were very shoehorned in. And like, let Bill Murray riff some stuff rather than scripting bad “This demon is my ex” jokes. I enjoyed it overall, but the lack of jokes will probably make this pretty forgettable tbh.
