Gremlins 2: The New Batch Reviews

November 7, 2011
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.

March 26, 2009
An hilarious sequel featuring equal parts creature slapstick for the small fry and satirical barbs for adults.
February 9, 2006
There's almost enough in-joke ingenuity to justify the total absence of plot.
August 30, 2004
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.

Too many gremlins and not enough story line.

January 1, 2000
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.
