The film is fairly formulaic, though some of its puns and wisecracks are hilarious, especially those delivered by the Littles' lazy and cynical Persian cat.

The plot, however, is both shabbier and less emotionally involving than its predecessor.

When Stuart tells Margolo that her wing is as good as new, she demurs, then appears to allude to the relative merits of SL2 and its cloying predecessor: 'It's much, much better.'

At 78 minutes it just zings along with vibrance and warmth.

This is all the stuff that was so watchable the first time. Done over. But at least it's nonlethal entertainment.

The world of Stuart Little is a wonderful thing to snuggle into, as full of heart and pep and innocence as the title character himself.

While a pleasant, well-animated family film, Stuart Little 2 is not as gripping as the first movie and lacks the emotional punch associated with the best of the genre.

August 14, 2012 Full Review Source: Film4

A sweet family movie with excellent voice talent.

A fluffy, mindless but ultimately cute sequel to a lame original that failed to register with me.

Stuart is an animation wonder - his tiny face is more expressive than most Hollywood stars'.

... a well-crafted, visually delightful family movie that successfully avoids most of the common family-movie mistakes.

In an era where sequels to kids film often rank below most Saturday Morning Cartoons, it's refreshing to see a movie that not only matches the quality of the first movie, but it some ways even exceeds it.

In these hardened times, this positive image should remind viewers across the country that this is still a beautiful city, gorgeous day or otherwise.

I'm a sucker for talking animals. And Stuart's a sweet talker if ever there was one.

I don't know what director Minkoff did differently this time around, but whatever it is, he's done it right.

The seamless integration of the CG animal characters with real-life ones and the general storybook look of the film remains impressive, but this being the second go-round it's that less dazzling; ditto for Nathan Lane's amusing wisecracks.

Entertaining children's film that hits all the right notes -- funny, colourful and fast-paced, with terrific animation and an exciting climax.

October 30, 2002 Full Review Source: ViewLondon

The mouse, with the voice of Michael J. Fox, is still charming.

A small thing can have large significance: that's a nice theme for a children's film to have.

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

The wonderful combination of the sweetness and the extraordinary technical accomplishments of the first film are maintained, but its overall impact falls a little flat with a storyline that never quite delivers the original magic.

They had three years to make this sequel to the original, which was a surprising critical and box office success in 1999. So why does this film feel so rushed?

Accomplishes the difficult feat of successfully expounding on its predecessor without attempting to reinvent the series.

Audience Reviews for Stuart Little 2

This sequel much like the original is only for kids and the extremely young at heart. The plot like the predecessor is entirely adequate but a major improvement is Michael J Fox's voice acting and actual scenes of action. It's better than the first one. But it's still a bit rubbish.

one of the best sequels of all time that still stands out as one of those movies that is better than the first, mainly because of the villain, i mean how can you go wrong with James Wood
