I can barely remember the first one, which is what you want in a classic movie that gets a sequel.

In subplot C, the two main humans from the first film find a potential spot in the Amazon where there are lots of birds of the type Blu is. So in subplot A, Blu and family go to the Amazon to find the birds... which they do almost straight away. In subplot D, people are bulldozing the trees down. Subplot F is the blue birds are "fighting" the red birds for space. And subplot E has other birds trying to get birds from the Amazon to be in their carnival experience. Leaving subplot B to be the "evil" bird of the first film to come back and try to get Blu.

As you might be able to guess, this makes the film rather disjointed. After the first parts of each story got set up and sort out, half the movie is already over! So these aren't deep plots, and the intersect at various points along the film, but don't have a huge impact on each other. They are just things the movie can cut to when it's tired of whatever it's showing at the moment.

And, of course, there is no surprises at any point...

Sigh... I'm not talking about this any more...
