Ugh. Doesn't deserve Stitch's name!

"Wow, this movie was awful. I am a HUGE fan of "Lilo & Stitch" so naturally I bought this movie sight unseen. Looks like Disney is just cashing the sequel checks with children being their primary target. Very low quality story. Stick with Saturday morning cartoons -- at least they're free."
Come on people,it's not terrible at all!

"Many big fans of the original claim that you shouldn't take one step into going near this one.But big Lilo and Stitch fans should definitely give this one a go.And they could turn out suprised,but this is suprisingly great stuff.Sure it's not as good as the first,but as a film in it's own right,everything here is spot on fantastic once again.The new villian,Dr.Hamsterwheel(Hamsterviel!It is Hamsterviel!!)is the greatest and most hilarious character I have seen in the way of animated gerbil like creations(I AM NOT GERBIL-LIKE,I AM HAMSTER-LIKE!).His accent is fanastic.His voice talent,Jeff Bennett,is fantastic.And his one-liners are incredible!Such as 'I AM IRKED!'at the disappointing sight of Experiment 625(also a new and hilarious character),'YOU THINK YOU'RE SO...PHONE BOOK,PHONE BOOK!!!',where he's starts a threat and discovers that Lilo is higher than he is,and finally,'I WASN'T REALLY GONNA CUT YOU IN HALF,IT WAS A JOKE!DIDN'T JUMBA PUT A FUNNY BONE IN YOU?',after Sparky saves Stitch and Lilo calls for help,then he get scared!It's brilliant!
Also many of the cast have stayed in to do just as well if not better,Daveigh Chase is amazing as Lilo once again,Stitch has a new problem finding his 'cousins',and Jumba and Pleakley are much,much funnier in this one!The only two downfalls are that the Elvis music has been cut short to just one song of his,'Slicin' Sand',which ain't his best,but at least Gareth Gates doesn't destroy another classic like last time,and Aloha,E Komo Mai,which you'll hear over the end credits,or before the start of the TV show,is one of the best songs I've heard in ages.So why is it not featured on the Island Favourites CD?Also this film could be a bit longer,I hate seeing Lilo and Stitch end,especially after only an hour or so,but I've heard rumours of a third film coming soon so keep me posted.
The plot of Stitch The Movie is good but doesn't always match up to it's expectations.First off,you only see 2 new experiments,625 and 221,so the rest of the excitement is left solely to the series.But there's all kinds of twists and turns here as a wonderful new adventure unfolds.
Overall Stitch The Movie may not look like much,but it's just as supremely entertaining as the original Lilo and Stitch,hitting all the right notes again,and keeping us all entertained until we found out the truth about the rumoured third movie.
So now I'm gonna stick this back in my DVD player and go make myself a sandwich!"

"While still enjoyable, this film lacked much of what made the original "Lilo and Stitch" movie enjoyable for adults as well as children. The drawing was too simple and the film included very little music at all (especially compared to the first movie). Stitch's mischievious ways were almost totally reformed leaving Stitch more like a blue, six-legged, teddy bear. The sequel carried virtually none of the Hawaiin tradition from the first film. Also, the sequel paid very little attention to Lilo and her sister's family situation.The sequel is an obvious rush job and an even more obvious segway (sp?) to the upcoming TV cartoon. It has a srong "Pokemon" feel to it ("Gotta catch em all") rather than the feel of the first "Lilo and "Stich" movie.This movie could have been much better, however Disney chose to totally overkill the idea of Stitch's cousins and left out too much of the original characters' traits."
As flawed as Experiment 625.

"I loved the first Stitch movie. I was actually disappointed at it's loss to Spirited Away for the best animated film of the year. I understood it's loss however. This movie is almost without any merit. "Almost" only being included because the first 30 minutes or so I remained hopeful. This movie, though not on par with the original, could still manage to be entertaining and fun. I was horribly wrong. Stitch has gone the way of Pokemon' with each of his previous siblings holding special powers. I know the Asian creative team had alot to do with this. The movie exists simply to plug the upcoming television show and for a mere 20 dollars or so we are given the honorable priviledge to view this 90 minute commericial. Like all Disney DVDs it is riddled with Disney promotions prior to watching the film and it is insulting they are woven throughout the feature also. This guerilla marketing is shameless and I'm beyond disappointed. Watch the first movie and don't touch this one."
