I must say, I disagree sir

I found her scenes with Downey among the weakest in the film as it was at these times the lack of a decent script was most obvious, and they were allowed to partake in self-indulgent improvisation that, in an attempt to be funny, came accross as much too forced to me. It worked in the first film but they overdid it here.

Reminded me of a bad episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm with each talking over the other.
