While the funny-bone is being gently tickled, the eye is constantly diverted. Unfortunately, and I find this true of every Zemeckis movie, neither the mind nor the heart is ever fully engaged.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

A dismal and mean-spirited sequel to one of the best movies of the 1980s.
June 29, 2015
A rush job from filmmakers who should have left well enough alone.

This is a sequel for sequel's sake - all title, no content.
February 25, 2009
The one thing the film got right was the crushed effect the media's growing omnipresence has had on human existence.

By the end, you may feel that you've just sat through a feature-length commercial for both part one (which has to be seen to make this sequel comprehensible) and part three (a trailer for it literally ends part two).

Zemeckis' fascination with having characters interact at different ages of their lives hurts the film visually, and strains credibility past the breaking point, by forcing him to rely on some very cheesy makeup designs.

Cleverly plotted, but commercially overloaded.
January 1, 2000
The film ultimately relies on too many cheesy make-up routines in which characters play their older (and female!) selves which makes it not exactly the best movie in this series.

A weak, convoluted attempt to cash in on the original's charms.
| Original Score: 2/5
August 21, 2002
More frantic, noisy, and overproduced than funny
| Original Score: 2/5
June 24, 2015
After a few good scenes, the plot gets too tricky, and the filmmakers keep walloping us with one chase scene after another.
March 27, 2003
Unfortunately, the story is not as novel or as funny the second time around.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

one-half a very bad movie and one-half a very good movie

The latest must-see, peer pressure, carve the logo on your head, designer blue jean experience.
January 1, 2000
Has the spirit, but it lacks the heart of the original film, and more importantly, much of the humor.

Glum, claustrophobic and often oppressive.
