Get Ready for Seconds... They're Back
A batch of unhatched critter eggs are mistaken for Easter eggs by the country-folk inhabitants of Grover's Bend and, before long, the ferocious furballs are on the rampage again.

Yes, I did enjoy this more than the original, as I speculated yesterday. I can't be arsed linking to that review because it's too hot. The cast isn't as interesting and it loses M. Emmet Walsh in favour of Barry Corbin. As substitutions go, it's not a bad one, but if they really do have to use Northern Exposure alumni in a film, I'd always much prefer Janine Turner make an appearance. No offence, Barry.
This one's a bit funnier than the original (especially the jingle in the burger restaurant) and the ending's really good as well. I don't know why they decided…
Very decent sequel.
Pretty much just as fun as the first film. It's just missing every element of Horror that the first film had. This is more Sci-Fi/Comedy than anything else.
First off it was very cool to see Tom McLoughlin in the smallest of roles as the Church Guard. He directed my favorite Friday the 13th film. He also did the Freddy's Nightmares TV show.
Also it was hilarious seeing David Ursin in this. He played Harvey the News Anchor in Die Hard.
Garris does a good job keeping this fun. Good idea to pick up 2 years after the events of the first film and revisit the characters. They could have very easily just put the Critters somewhere…
Como buena explotación popular de Gremlins, contó con secuela antes que la propia peli de Dante.
La primera peli de Garris como director aumentaba el desenfado de la primera parte, con bichos que hablaban y gritaban como señoronas.
Más bichos de los Chiodo y un gran gag con tetas y grapas.
Divertida, aunque al final termina por cansar un poco con esa masa enfurecida muy poco enfurecida.
Critters 2 is a far superior sequel when it comes to entertainment. Far campier, much more violent and crazy, and featuring a ton of tongue-in-cheek jokes and some very questionable content for being rated PG-13; Critters 2: The Main Course takes a bite out of the original and is plenty more satisfying for amping it all up.
I liked it at least as much as the first one. While the first one spent a lot of time introducing the critters and their character, this one was able to stand on that foundation and relish in its absurdity a little more. There were a lot more horror-comedy gags which I liked a lot, like critters getting squashed, and slammed in doors and deep fried. The fact it didn't have to introduce so much also allowed the actual battle to start up faster.
Solid easy-viewing, comedy horror fodder.
The Alien Council did a sweep of the galaxy and found some traces of Crite D.N.A so it's back to Grovers Bend for Critters 2!
Following all the rules of 80s sequels...it's bigger, brasher, bloodier and "funnier"...even boobier than the first.
This one obviously had more cash spent on it as the monster effects are far better than before, with more convincing gore too. A lot of the added humour doesn't really work but the Critters/Nightmare on Elm St crossover continues with one of the bounty hunters attempting to copy a Freddy Kruger cut out...only being stopped by having a copy of Playboy stuck in front of him!
A mental final showdown with a burger factory vs a giant critter ball rounds things off nicely. I'd say it is just as good as the original!
The fun filled, slapstick, completely over the top follow on to the less than critically acclaimed original. Long winded? Completely, just like this sequel, unfortunately.
It's heart is in the right place, but it never seems to have the originality of it's predecessor. It ambles along as a great double watch with 'Critters', but as a stand alone, it seriously struggles. An alright plot, with obvious ham acting, but some good deaths.
'Critters 2' may not be the perfect foil for the franchise, but it does manage to entertain. Fun, but far from the finished article.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Definitely not as good as the first movie, of course, but I thought it was humorous and fun. It is still more gory than Gremlins, which is good, I liked that part. The story isn't the best, but it didn't feel like it needed to be anyways. It's enjoyable.
Just another beautiful classic cult movie <3
"This is errr... American culture!"
Apparently the poster for Critters 2 is the same as the poster for Critters, except with a giant number two inserted into it. I'd say the same about the movie if I didn't like it so darn much. Somehow even more of a Gremlins wannabe than the first, the Critters are now both nastier and more playful, and there are hundreds of them rolling around like vicious Popples, turning small-town yokels into goop-covered skeletons for their gluttonous pleasure.
The Critters turn out not to have been entirely finished off. In between the two movies, Charlie has been gradually fitting into the role of bounty hunter after leaving with them at the end of the first film. All three bounty hunters return to Earth to finish the job.
This film takes a fairly lacklustre first movie and somehow does everything right. Any characters from the previous film are brought back in an interesting way. Not only is Charlie no longer hugely irritating, but he's actually a really interesting centrepoint around which the film can revolve.
Bradley Brown's grandmother who, in contrast with the meat-loving Critters, is a staunch vegetarian, turns out to be a really interesting addition to the…
Still an extremely fun film, just lacking the value of the first one. This time, however, it is even funnier. I found myself laughing out loud quite a few times. This is a fun film and a good watch if you are looking for some cheesy 80s sci-fi action.
Watching its predecessor might have helped further my understanding of the insane plot, but the film still managed to be fun schlock in the best way.
Because it is impossible for me not to compare the film to Gremlins: it was not as sweet and flawless (IMO) as Gremlins and not as bat-shit and hilarious as Gremlins 2. (If I compared every film to Gremlins 2, I would probably be disappointed; however, this film is practically its less popular twin.)
There are several hilarious sequences and fun creature effects, but I was just hoping for a bit more than the low budget could provide.
I appreciate that Charlie walked untold miles through the wilderness dragging his space parachute to drive home the fact that he used it.
