Gremlins 2: The New Batch Reviews

February 6, 2018
Only a snob could resist such a generous level of lunacy.

This uninhibited and uproarious monster bash, directed by Joe Dante, is more quick-witted and ironic than the original; it sets forth a savvy, slaphappy agenda before the opening credits and follows it straight through to the end, and even beyond.

An hilarious sequel featuring equal parts creature slapstick for the small fry and satirical barbs for adults.

There's almost enough in-joke ingenuity to justify the total absence of plot.

Speaks to the gleeful hell-raising monster in each of us, and it speaks with much more verve, cleverness and good humor than the film on which it is based. Add this to the very short list of sequels that neatly surpass their predecessors.

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

A devilishly, hysterically, cacklingly, subversively funny picture that builds and builds until it literally self-destructs.

For a good hour it's less like a wild-spirited comedy than a '60s Disney film with Dean Jones or Fred MacMurray.

Too many gremlins and not enough story line.
