  1. The floating, flailing, flying puppies in the inspired opening credits of 102 Dalmatians set the tone for an adorable sequel to the live-action version of the famously spotted cartoon.

    It is Close's performance that gives the movie its oomph and will leave adults with smiles as wide as the kids'.

    Though 102 Dalmatians digs up little new ground and muzzles its villain, it does have a fetching sense of functional fun now and then.
  4. How is it possible that actors as expert as Close and Depardieu can wind up together in a mostly brainless big-budget stinker?
  5. 20
    The whole movie is overbright, overloud, antic, telling us the characters and animals are endearing rather than allowing them to reveal themselves as such.
  6. So dull and formulaic, it ought to be leashed and led directly to the doghouse.

    I was still a child when I saw this movie, but I quickly realized it was just a cheap copy of the first. I wondered to myself what the difference was this film compared to the previous one, and came to the conclusion that the only difference was an extra dog. Expand
