While a pleasant, well-animated family film, Stuart Little 2 is not as gripping as the first movie and lacks the emotional punch associated with the best of the genre.

A fluffy, mindless but ultimately cute sequel to a lame original that failed to register with me.

The plot, however, is both shabbier and less emotionally involving than its predecessor.

The seamless integration of the CG animal characters with real-life ones and the general storybook look of the film remains impressive, but this being the second go-round it's that less dazzling; ditto for Nathan Lane's amusing wisecracks.

They had three years to make this sequel to the original, which was a surprising critical and box office success in 1999. So why does this film feel so rushed?

Every bit as creepy as the original. But this time the creepiness of the mouse-adoption isn't even acknowledged.

With all the incessant action, SL2 feels like it's trying to be bigger than it is.

I still can't relate to Stuart: He's a mouse, for cryin' out loud, and all he does is milk it with despondent eyes and whine that nobody treats him human enough.

Because director Rob Minkoff so clearly believes in the possibility of making Stuart come completely alive for an audience of both tots and their parents, this movie is full of the confident visual snap of the first film.

As immaculate as Stuart Little 2 is, it could be a lot better if it were, well, more adventurous.
July 19, 2002
Has a lot more stupid action -- and a lot less heart -- than the character-driven original.

There's a limit ... to how much sweetness anyone should be expected to take.

I hate the fact that the late E.B. White, who with Stuart Little created a decidedly off-beat children's story, still has his name attached to this nonsense.
July 19, 2002
An overcalculated, up-to-the-minute kid flick that buries the book's mysteries under a pile of noise, misguided action sequences, and product placements for the PlayStation 2.

So aggressively cheery that Pollyana would reach for a barf bag.
July 19, 2002
This is not as good as the first but it still has entertainment value and nice messages about families and friendship and adventures.
July 18, 2002
[Stuart and Margolo are] bland and rather boring characters, dumbed down for kids (and parents).
July 18, 2002
This 72-minute film does have some exciting scenes, but it's a tad slow.
July 18, 2002
In every department, the new movie is a blander affair [than the first].
