Movie Info

Critters 2: The Main Course is the sequel to the highly enjoyable horror comedy Critters. The people of the Kansas town first menaced by the little, furry creatures find that they are not yet safe as they are again assaulted when the creatures reproduce. Charlie (Don Opper) is joined by Lee (Roxanne Kernohan) as all join forces to save the town. The special effects, particularly the ""critters" are again, superb, but the direction by Mick Garris is less self-assured than in the original feature. While still enjoyable, Critters 2 is not nearly as much fun as the original, but still well worth a view.

Critic Reviews for Critters 2: The Main Course

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (8)

  • It lacks all of the style and sense of fun of the original Critters and has no reason for existence -- aside, of course, from the fact that Critters is a brand name and this is the current model.

  • As a sequel it delivers but this is when everything started going down. [Full review in Spanish].

  • It isn't quite as adept at balancing the yuks and nyuks as the first film.

  • If Critters was a sorry replay of Gremlins, then Main Course anticipates in many ways the barn-burning Gremlins 2: The New Batch.

    Aug 15, 2003 | Full Review…
  • Probably the worst of the Critters series (and that's saying something).

    Jul 16, 2003 | Rating: 2/5
  • Just as good as its predecessor ... which was actually a pretty good time!

    Critters 2 leans a bit more into the silliness of the series. Not to say that the original was a bleak take on gritty realism, but it did seem to take the danger a fraction more serious. It's not something that works particularly for or against the sequel, it's just a slight change, one that makes sense even. Establishes a real inter-connectivity in the franchise (that Critters would basically hold on to all the way up until that most recent one, which took some pretty wild liberties).

    Definitely not as good as the first movie, of course, but I thought it was humorous and fun. It is still more gory than Gremlins, which is good, I liked that part. The story isn't the best, but it didn't feel like it needed to be anyways. It's enjoyable.

    Entertaining sequeln and best of the Critter series, although thats not saying much. it works well and ups the action and comedy, it entertains where it should, and improves on the decent first film. but 3 and 4 dont so the series comes to a stop.

    Second entry in the Critters franchise a fun, entertaining sequel. Picking up where the first left off, Critters 2 is a good follow up to the first film. The film is an enjoyable sequel, and considering that this film is a sequel, it succeeds where most sequels fail, capturing the essence of the original film. I would say that Critters 2 is on par with the original. Fans of the first film will surely enjoy this film, as it keeps everything that made the first one good and throws it a few new ideas in the mix. What you get is a film that builds on what made the first one terrific and makes it just as entertaining and fun.If you've enjoyed the first film, then you're most likely going to enjoy this film. A terrific comedy horror film thats very entertaining from start to finish. As far as horror sequels are concerned, Critters 2 does a great job at building on the success of the first and being just as entertaining as the first. The film is a must see for fans of the series, but unfortunately is also the last good Critters sequel, after this entry, the Critters films started going downhill. An entertaining and fun sequel to a memorable horror comedy.
