Hong Kong action director Ronny Yu... brings a slick, kinetic, cartoonish energy to the proceedings.
A well-paced, colourfully shot, and keenly edited sequel to challenge the original.
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...
After the well had seemingly run dry after 'Child's Play 3', 'Bride of Chucky' is a meta-horror reinvention of the killer doll franchise. Injecting the series with the contemporary elements of copious Fangoria gore (the Pinhead moment is stupendous), a headbanger Rob Zombie-contributed soundtrack, an exuberant Hong Kong director (Ronny Yu) and a spangly sense of humor (Chucky summarizes that "If this were a movie, it would take two or three sequels to do it justice."), 'Bride of Chucky' is exactly the cocktail that the Lilliputian murderer necessitated. The nasally vocal work from Jennifer Tilly compliments the acid-tongued grouchiness of Brad Dourif. Squabbling over Martha Stewart recipes and monogamy, the domestication-via-relationship satire is an absolutely hilarious contrast and it is overt that improvisation was used for the scenes between the Tiffany and Chuck puppets. It should be noted that the expressive animatronics have dramatically ameliorated since the 1988 original and the movements look effortlessly fluid. The rules around the soul transference with the voodoo amulet are now jettisoned mostly but, within the genre-bending confines of Don Mancini's lampooning script, it is appropriate to violate canon. The film concludes on a tawdry jab at sequel-bait with the birth of Chucky's spawn. Even the presence of Katherine Heigl can't derail this spirited successor.
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!
