Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway Reviews

April 1, 2021
This 93-minute movie is a school holiday treat that also delivers a kick or two for older viewers.

Fabulous, feel-good family fun.

Expecting anything gentle and measured - and anything other than more of the same, just laced with some snarky commentary that acknowledges the criticisms directed the initial movie's way - is as foolish as most of Peter's chaotic adventures.

As beautifully animated as the first film, and with another scene-stealing performance from Domnhall Gleeson, Peter Rabbit 2 is not a bad little jaunt for a sequel. It's sufficiently fast, funny and family-friendly.

A good dose of harmless, fluffy nonsense that knows how to please its target market.

Even though the production values are impressive, in casting off the spirit of Beatrix Potter's stories, Peter Rabbit 2 is ultimately a hollow story let down by its writing.

Peter Rabbit 2 wanders further from its charming source material. Instead, it's an intermittently unpleasant franchise film about the unpleasantness of franchise storytelling.

The demographic that shipped the predecessor to $350 million worldwide(!!!) should be delighted that [Will] Gluck and co. have adhered to that old chestnut of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".
March 25, 2021
Looking at it broadly and comparing it to other family-targeted offerings in recent years, Peter Rabbit 2 underachieves.
March 25, 2021
...brisk pacing, punchy humour inspired by inner-truths, and earnest performances brought to life by impeccable animation.

Once again goes about chaotically tossing bunny droppings over the perfectly fertile ground that is the Beatrix Potter source material.

Younger children may come away with a case of sensory overload. So, too, will the Potter purists. The rest of us, however, should be OK.

Not only delivers on what was so appealing about the first live-action/animation hybrid edition but actually expands it out of the McGregor garden and into the big city with winning results.
March 23, 2021
It's an astute, entertaining, light-hearted mix of slapstick and self-reflexive humor commingling with enlightened, sharp sentiments about individualism and commercialism.
March 23, 2021
[T]he second time definitely is not the charm.
March 23, 2021
A cute family flick with fun characters and a charming story with lots of heart and great messages. A little generic? - yes. But this is a kid's film after all - and there's a LOT to offer for its core audience.

There are certainly far more despicable franchises in the world of children's entertainment than the Peter Rabbit series, but there are few this negligible.
