A Truly Nice Film
I liked this better than the original, and that''s a high compliment because I thought highly of the original film: Stuart Little. As good as that was, I just thought this was even better.
All the voice-overs are excellent with Nathan Lane having the best lines as "Snowball," the cat. He was simply hilarious, line after line.
The film once again features great colors, a virtual rainbow of them, especially with some of the inventive rooms in the Little house. The parents, once again, are super nice. It's a treat to watch Geena Davis and Hugh Laurie play an old- fashioned "Leave It To Beaver"-type couple. The film has no objectionable material and leaves you with a nice feeling. There are animated films or animated/real life combinations like this, that advertise "family-friendly viewing" but don't really deliver, instead sneaking in sexual innuendos and the like.
Not here. This one is pure, morals-wise, except for one scene near the end when the mom (Geena Davis) tells Stuart and their son she's still proud of them even though they just got caught in a big lie. (Inferring that the lie was okay since everything turned out okay.) Other than that, nothing but good messages were heard and seen all around and this is a funny movie, to boot. Highly recommended for the family, and that's no cliché.
22% "Unlike its predecessor, "Stuart Little 2" doesn't achieve any sarcasm for its stars, and leaves it a worthy, yet unproviding sequel".
The story is so dumb it may not entertain even young kids.
Story/Screenplay: (3.5/5) A nice family-oriented story featuring several talking animals. Easy to watch, it's mostly light and fun with only a few chase scenes that might be scary for little ones, but probably not.
Duration/Tempo: (3.5/5) At 1 hour and 17 minutes, it's a very, very short movie that felt longer, but it was still short.
Cast & Crew: (4/5) Kudos to the live-action actors: Geena Davis, Hugh Laurie, and Jonathan Lipnicki. The voice actors were brilliant: Michael J. Fox, Melanie Griffith, and Nathan Lane.
Summary: (3.5/5) The story was nice, the cast was very good, and the film was short. A thumbs up.
Better then the first one. This movie won't do much for you but maybe your kids will like it.
"Stuart Little 2" is not better than "Over the Hedge"
I never cared for this movie as much as the original, that is until I rewatched it in 2020, I looked at it from a critical perspective and saw that it improved upon its predecessor quite nicely. The family dynamic is very realistic and sweet, they all work together so nicely and the Littles are a very believable family. Once again Hugh Laurie is my favorite part of this movie, does more of an American accent than a lot of actual Americans and I could fully believe it if he was born and raised there, he has a pair of great jokes that relate to Dads everywhere and he is a talented actor. The plot is very one dimensional and doesn't offer a lot of variety, but Snowbell is funny as hell in this movie and James Woods offers some great ad-libbing as a falcon. This movie is also full of plot conveniences that were there to remind everyone that this movie is for kids and your brain should be switched off while watching it. I like its breezy runtime of 1H 28M because it is perfect to keep kids occupied and the adults watching it won't have to suffer that long. I personally like this movie, just not as much as the first one, contrary to everyone else. It's worth a watch if you at least liked the first one, and it's perfect for kids.
This film is pretty good sequel better than the first film.
While very predictable and at 75 minutes is a bit too short even for the target audience, Stuart Little 2 is a sequel that's better than the first with better visuals, more dedicated voice acting from Michael J. Fox and feeling a bit more...you know, fun. Who'd have thought this would be less juvenile than what we'd get in the late 2000's and early 2010's.
I like when mouse use plain
