- Eddie's eyeglass frames change from black rimmed in the kitchen, to rimless when he goes to bed, then back to black rimmed the following morning.

Just like with Welcome to the Jungle, the action is serviceable, but lacks genuine thrills.
The Next Level lacks the gleeful inventiveness of Jungle, in which three well-known stars slyly subverted their personas while embodying the insecurities and naivety of their teenage players. Absent that, it mostly feels gimmicky; the cast straining to recapture the hilarious rapport that once seemed so effortless.
A large part of the first film's pleasure came from watching adult actors, very sure in their screen personae, pretend to be children who were awed (or disgusted, as the case may be) by their new bodies and abilities. This time around, that getting-to-know-you phase is much less fun.
