The film is fairly formulaic, though some of its puns and wisecracks are hilarious, especially those delivered by the Littles' lazy and cynical Persian cat. full review
When Stuart tells Margolo that her wing is as good as new, she demurs, then appears to allude to the relative merits of SL2 and its cloying predecessor: 'It's much, much better.' full review
At 78 minutes it just zings along with vibrance and warmth. full review
This is all the stuff that was so watchable the first time. Done over. But at least it's nonlethal entertainment.
The world of Stuart Little is a wonderful thing to snuggle into, as full of heart and pep and innocence as the title character himself.
A simple, charming little movie that's fit for both kids and parents. full review
This installment is a much bigger Little adventure with all the ingredients of the heartwarming original -- excitement, humor, awesome computer graphics -- thrust into high gear. full review
[Stuart is] like every beloved pet we ever wished we could talk to. full review
As immaculate as Stuart Little 2 is, it could be a lot better if it were, well, more adventurous. full review
Has a lot more stupid action -- and a lot less heart -- than the character-driven original.
It reminds us that Nathan Lane is the best show stealer in show business. full review
Like the hugely successful first film, the sequel provides pleasant, engaging if largely disposable entertainment for the general audience. full review
This follow-up to the 1999 family hit knows exactly what its audience wants -- action, charm and eye-popping visuals. full review
Significantly better than its 2002 children's-movie competition. full review
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. full review
Vacillating between sappy and snappy, Stuart Little 2 is featherweight family fare, perfectly timed for viewers with short attention spans. full review
