Movie Info

This horror film, directed by Ronnie Yu, marked a return (after an eight-year lapse) of Chucky and the Child's Play series that began in 1988. At the moment of his death, the spirit of former serial killer Charles Lee Ray was mystically relocated in the doll Chucky (voice of Brad Dourif). After being salvaged from the evidence morgue by his ex-girlfriend Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly) and a corrupt cop, Chucky is put back in action when Tiffany sews his pieces back together and works a voodoo spell to

A well-paced, colourfully shot, and keenly edited sequel to challenge the original.

February 2, 2014 Full Review Source: Georgia Straight

The best of the self-aware slasher satires of the late 1990s.

Grisly, tongue-in-cheek sequel isn't for kids.

...feels more like a parody of these movies than a natural extension of the world established in part one.

A hilariously campy and surprisingly diverting horror sequel that's always smartly aware of its own ridiculousness.

Redundant and more than a little wearisome.

The perfect satirical horror. Brilliant observations about the genre, the media and the goth scene. Hilarious, and you actually care about the characters.

at least everyone involved seems to have approached the project with tongues firmly in cheek, and for that reason alone, the movie is a whole lot better than it has any right to be.

Any film where John Ritter dies TWICE can't be all bad.

Pokes fun at the genre (while respecting it), but more importantly, it pokes fun at itself and the whole concept of series horror.

As with the first three films in the series, it is more a showcase for puppetry and animatronics than for acting or directing...

All of the added humor, though, does not make Bride of Chucky a good film--just a campy one.

Has a genuinely goofy premise, and is far more original than the other sequels. But if you look at it as a horror film, which it is, that is where the film fails.

Bride Of Chucky, the fourth film in the Child's Play series, plays like an unfunny and corny parody of the first three films.

What turns out to be the scariest thing about Bride of Chucky is its shockingly large box-office take so far, proving just how critic-proof and taste-proof some movies can be.

Audience Reviews for Bride of Chucky

The one of most funny and entertaining sequel of Chucky franchise. Still, the screenplay is a little amateur and poor. But as a good fan, I doesn't care so much, it's a great time of see this sequel.

The series finally get's back on track with this fourth instalment in the Chucky franchise. This time, Charles' ex-girlfriend finds his pieces and reassembles them and casts one last spell to resurrect him once more. She tricks him into thinking he is free again, and after all goes wrong, her body is then living through another doll (a female). The two dolls fall in love just like they used to and make love. With some great comedy, awesome bloody scenes, and a story that is almost comparable to the likes of the original, "Bride of Chucky" is one of the best in the series. Highly recommended to fans of the series. All that being said, none of the films are great in any way, they are just great fun!

Okay, five stars is probably too much, but I do love this movie. Probably my favourite in the Child's Play series.
More funny than scary, this greatly benefits from the inclusion of Jennifer Tilly as Tiffany. So evil and hilarious. Katherine Heigl also is good as Jade. The brief appearance of Alexis Arquette in a role that makes me think of Marilyn Manson is also a winner.
This is pretty much a road movie with cheesy horror scenes and two dolls causing havoc. I think I enjoy Tiffany's antics a little more than I should!

This movie brings humor to the Child's Play series, as well as a love interest for its villain. I really enjoyed this movie, Jennifer Tilly is great, she really brings energy to this film. If you liked the first three films of this series, don't miss this one.
