|Columbia Pictures | Release Date: July 19, 2002||CRITIC SCORE DISTRIBUTION|
Manages to pretty much ignore all the strengths of the earlier film while exacerbating all its faults.
Of the voices, Griffith makes Margalo lovable and as sexy as a little yellow bird can be, and Lane does a virtuoso job with Snowbell, the only cat with dialogue by Damon Runyon. Fox's Stuart is stalwart and heroic--the Braveheart of mice. As for the parents, Davis and Laurie deserve some kind of award for keeping straight faces. Read full review
Does a masterful job of combining digital imagery and voice performance to create totally believable animal characters.
It's hard to imagine spending $120 million on a film starring a computer-generated mouse -- an actor who barely demands a byte to eat -- but if that's how much it takes to provide innocent enchantment for the global hordes, so be it. This sequel beats the original paws down.
