"Aside from a ludicrous scene early on depicting a lethal injection sentence being carried out in what looks like a nurse's office in a suburban elementary school (which, as we find out in the commentary track, was actually filmed in a church basement!), "Mommy 2" is an entertaining, clever thriller, and a good follow-up to "Mommy". I especially liked how writer/director Max Collins didn't give us more of the same. Whereas "Mommy" was more of a horror thriller about a deranged mother, "Mommy 2" is essentially a straight-up murder mystery, where Patty McCormack's "Mommy" character- supposedly rehabilitated through the wonders of modern chemistry- is just one of many suspects in a series of brutal killings. In addition to the well-told mystery story, the DVD emulates the first "Mommy" DVD and includes a load of extras, my favorite of which is a terrific commentary track featuring Mr. Collins and his actors and crew. And, hey-- when you're done with the "Mommy" films, be sure to check out Mr. Collins' latest DVD thriller, "Real Time: Siege at Lucas Street Market". Story and extras wise, it's a blast, maybe his best DVD yet."
Great sequel to a great movie!

"This sequel to "Mommy" is once again a good movie. Patty McCormack is still excellent as the bad seed grown up, and "WKRP" alumnus Gary Sandy is also good as a bitter cop. All in all, as good as, if not better than, its predecessor."
Even better than the classic original!!

"This is one exceptional and rare sequel. It is even better than it's predecessor. It is somewhat similar to the original in many respects, but has many more twists and turns and surprises. It's also nice to see Paul Petersen (Jeff Stone from the classic t.v. series, "The Donna Reed Show") as "Mommy"'s brother-in-law. It keeps you guessing right up to the amusing and ironic ending, which fortunately also leaves the door open for yet another sequel. If it is as good as the first two, yes please!!"

"Mommy has done some pretty bad things and in this sequel to "Mommy" she is about to pay for her crimes. But wait, Mommy is not through yet; a woman like her cannot be disposed of so easily. After all, she only wants to clear her name and reunite with her precious daughter Jessica Anne. The media and those around her however are relentless in trying to get her to confess and discover the truth. In addition the famlies of her former victims would like nothing better then to see Mommy dead. Can she riase above it all, and still regain the love of the daughter she once nearly killed? If you have read "Moommy" then you have to read "Mommy's Day." It is just as suspenseful as the first book and the ending will positively shock you! Great book highly recommended. Hope Mr. Collins writes a third in the series."
