"My Grandma gave this movie to me and I really wanted to see it. I watched it and it was great. Cruella just gets released from jail and she tries to be nice because she dosen't want to go to jail again. Eventually she becomes mean and tries to kills the puppies once again. They end up at a cake factory and they cook Cruella. I enjoyed watching this movie. I think anyone should get it. A great film!"

"I am SO EXCITED that this movie has finally been released on DVD. I think it was released on DVD, maybe 8 years ago, but it has been GONE since, and trying to find it online has resulted in serious sticker shock. (The cheapest I had seen it was in the neighborhood of fifty dollars!) and I have been looking for this movie since my daughter was born 6 years ago because I love this movie. This movie is incredibly cute, and though I love the first movie (the live action 101 Dalmations), I actually like this one more. Glenn Close is brilliantly evil, the animal talent is adorable, and Gerard Depardieu is hilarious as a fur favoring fashion designer. This movie is full of pratfalls and physical comedy, but never "mean" or inappropriate or tasteless. This is a perfect family film that everyone can laugh at, and the comedy shines through to every age group."
Cruella De Vil is cured or is she?

"Cruella De Vil has spent 3 years behind bars, and in this seagual she gets granted her freedoom, but if she harms pupppies, she lose her fortune to the anmal shelter. Cruella De Vil (Glenn Close) gets rleased from jail on parole. And gets assigned to parole officer Chloe (Alice Evans), who loves dogs. But doubts that Cruella De Vil is chagned. Cruella joins the 2nd chance animal shelter where the owner (Ioan Grudd) is fooled by Cruella's new ways. Now, you would have to be dumb to fall for that Cruella is crued. Roger, Anita, Horace and Jasper are not in this film. And if you didn't like one or more of those characters you may like this movie. But for some reason this has a G rating when it may be scary, and with mild violence. But remember there are very few live action movies with a G rating."

"Someone please tell me what the point of this film was? The 1996 film 101 Dalmatians was a remake and now they're doing a sequel to a remake? That is seriously quite odd. Even though this movie is much better than 101 Dalmatians from 1996, I still don't really see a reason to sequelize the movie. Anyway I really didn't see much values in this family film, apart from good ol' Glenn Close and the dogs. Yes, the dogs are still very cute and make the movie bearable enough. However, the story is absurd, the typical predictability deal is here in this movie and I didn't laugh very much. Apart from the ending where Cruella literally gets baked, this film is pretty much comedy-free. Kids will find it hard to laugh at this flick and to generally enjoy this film too. Even they're little minds will not be tricked by the movies dotty silliness. Adults will be dragged along by kids to see this sequel, but I'm sure none of them will think too much of it. Sure, 102 Dalmatians has some good points - the groovy opening song, Glenn Close's excellent performance, the funny ending and the cuteness of the dogs - but ultimately it doesn't succeed. This is a sequel that you will only be bothered watching while you're one a plane or a boat or something just to pass the time. I'll ask again, someone please tell me the point of this movie?NOTE: 102 Dalmatians does look extremely neat in Widescreen Edition, so if you are thinking of buying it, this is the format I recommend it in."
Cute and worth watching, just don't expect too much

"I didn't expect to like this movie, but it turned out to be entertaining and kind of cute, a solid 3 star offering - and it's definitely just right for the kids. Adults will find the plot transparently obvious and standardly Disney-predictable, but then it *is* supposed to be a kids' movie! If nothing else, grownups, get it to watch the usually serious Ioan Gruffudd (Horatio Hornblower and Fantastic Four) play tug-of-war with his dogs and get made fun of by his parrot, who was voiced by the incomparable Eric Idle."
