Less scary than the original, but much funnier -- though the theatrical version has a scene with Hulk Hogan that's unwisely replaced by one of John Wayne on the video.

Everything that was original in the first Gremlins -- the plot, the gags, the wacky array of monsters and the cute, little furball Gizmo -- is simply rehashed in this sequel that simply does not live up to its predecessor.

Perhaps the most uninhibited comedy since Helzappopin.

Clever sequel gets just a bit too snarky for its own good here and there ... but overall this is a seriously fun flick.

More enjoyable than the first film, offering audacious dark humour and a lot of knowing 'in-jokes'.

Too many gremlins and not enough story line.

For a good hour it's less like a wild-spirited comedy than a '60s Disney film with Dean Jones or Fred MacMurray.
January 1, 2000
A devilishly, hysterically, cacklingly, subversively funny picture that builds and builds until it literally self-destructs.

How can one take a movie seriously that doesn't take itself seriously?

It must be said that there are many big laughs, but it's also important to note that this is less a cohesive movie than a fragmented series of bizarre sketches with even more bizarre characters.
January 1, 2000
As rationales for sequels go, this one is about par for being crass and high concept.
