When last we left Tree, she saved herself from a certain death at the hands of her roommate Lori as she kicked the psychopath out of the Kappa Nu sorority window. Tree's never-ending birthday was FINALLY over, and she managed to start an entire new life...swearing to never repeat her old mistakes again.
Horror Mystery Comedy (Dark) - Like the first film, this is more of a dark comedy with horror
elements than a straightforward horror film, and this time around
there's a stronger science fiction element as well. All of the
principal actors from the first film return. While rated PG-13,
there are some intense moments of violence as well as language and
mature themes unsuitable for kids.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Average ...a passable way to throw away 100 minutes if you're willing to turn off your brain and pretend it's making sense. ...Whatever pleasures this comedy-tinged horror/thriller may have to offer, coherence and intelligence aren't among them. Halfway through this sequel, I gave up trying to follow the narrative.
Roger EbertFull Review Below Average More a geeky '80s-style high school film than horror, "Happy Death Day 2U” puzzlingly gives up on all the strengths that made its predecessor an appealing watch. Throughout this meandering mess, my mind wandered off ...
Slant MagazineFull Review Good Picking up immediately where its predecessor left off, the infinitely headier and entertaining Happy Death Day 2U sees Trish dropped into a multiverse murder mystery rooted in experimental physics.

When last we left Tree, she saved herself from a certain death at the hands of
her roommate Lori (RUBY MODINE, Showtime's Shameless) as she kicked the
psychopath out of the Kappa Nu sorority window. Tree's never-ending birthday was
FINALLY over, and she managed to start an entire new life...swearing to never
repeat her old mistakes again.
Or so she thought.
No sooner has Tree said goodbye to the endless loop and begun a promising new
relationship with Carter (ISRAEL BROUSSARD, The Bling Ring) than she realizes
that solving the puzzle of her bizarre murder has had unintended consequences-on
a scale that will send shockwaves through the multiverse.
Carter's roommate, Ryan (PHI VU), whose fascinating ability to
always be in the wrong place at the wrong second, has spent his college years
building a machine designed to prove that time can be slowed down to the
molecular level. Alongside his fellow aspiring engineers Samar (SURAJ SHARMA) and Dre (SARAH YARKIN), Ryan and
team are this close to perfecting the Sisyphus Quantum Cooling Reactor (SISSY)
and becoming candidates for a Nobel Prize (or blowing up Bayfield University and
everyone within a 100-mile radius, whichever comes first).
When Tree wakes up to find that it's Ryan's meddling with the natural order that
has brought havoc to every dimension, she must rally the troops-including Kappa
house president Danielle (RACHEL MATTHEWS)-to get to
the real source of the time jumps and fix it for good. The only problem? Tree's
stuck in a parallel version of her actual world. For good and bad, everything is
slightly askew, and Tree's wondering if she's better off here or back in the
life she has always known.
As Tree reconnects with lost family, confronts those in her past-including
former fling Professor Gregory (CHARLES AITKEN)-and faces new
villains, such as Dean Bronson (STEVE ZISSIS),
she will realize that she is the only one keeping herself from getting home.
It's up to Tree to take the karmic lessons learned from dying 11 times yesterday
to rally her inner badass and take down everyone who ever underestimated her.
