Reviews are wrong - it's fantastic just like the first one.

This movie is nowhere near as good as the first one. It is downright awful at times. While it is nice to see most of the cast reunited again, the story being told is very dull. Sure, you can watch it once just to say you've seen it, but you'll most likely forget about it soon after.

The elderly who left with the aliens return to Earth as their companions work to retrieve additional pods left in the ocean and one that was recovered by the government. All cast members return in some form. Still decent but wisely left at just one sequel.

Stretching the idea a bit too far. First one was nice, this was is saved ultimately by the emotional moments and the tragedy, but ultimately probably shouldn't have been made.

Whilst not faring nearly as well as Ron Howard's original at the box office, Daniel Petrie's sequel is really no better or worse than the first film which, despite its popularity, was no masterpiece anyway. This follow-up is light-hearted, harmless and entertaining enough but ultimately feels like a wasted effort - considering Hume Cronyn, Jessica Tandy and friends have spent the last three years on an alien planet, the script spends hardly any time detailing their extraterrestrial experiences or even the consequences of their unexpected return to Earth. Instead, Petrie opts for a mere, unimaginative retread of the original, which makes for a passable if unremarkable sequel.

I actually liked this one more than the original. I think this one is less awkward than the first and has more of a message to it dealing with immortality. Elaine Stritch steals the show as the new addition to the cast and Jessica Tandy really is a stand out in this one. Jack Gilford is great just like he was in the first and Wilfrod Brimely too. I just felt like this one really had more to it in terms of a plot and a look on life itself.

The sequel's title doesn't lie, it's "The Return" of the wonderful, warming heart and spirit of gentleness and emotions being expressed while providing a fine narration and increased levels of its qualities to be enough to be better than its predecessor. (A-)

One of the most unnecessary sequel ever but IF you gotta make a sequel that nobody asked for at least get all these great actors back who do not slum their performances in anyway shape or form to make it enjoyable for the one time you're ever going to watch it.

Just as good as the first one. I like the originality of the storyline. Great acting and great cast.

No funny parts all drama and very predictable action parts.

Got tired of the delightful antics of old people.

I haven't seen the first one, but I liked the main idea, staying with love ones on Earth and die, or never get old on another planet...

Endearing but pretty pointless.

Pas mal aussi bon que le premier pour moi. Le succès du 1er ne semble pas trop avoir forcé la main pour en faire un 2e ordinaire. Merci Prise 2.

it was good but thought the first one was better, it was a good film, Steve Guttenberg starred in it and I love it on DVD, it starred Don Ameche, Wilford Brimley, Steve Guttenberg and Maureen Stapleton
