A pale imitation of the first film. Nothing worthwhile.

Pretty good, but nothing to get your teeth stuck into...!

"The cover of the video drew me to this film,but don't expect too much. THE DENTIST 2 is pretty slow in places, but the gore and F/X are good, and it was funny in places. I haven't seen the first film and after seeing this I'm not sure I will bother, but it isn't a total waste of time. Gore hounds will like it. People who are sensitive of dentists...beware!"
Stupid, lame, but some nice gore

"Yeah I know, I like watching bad movies, I think they're pretty funny, and when they have gore, I find it even better, because I love gore. And "The Dentist 2" brought both of them. It has some jokes that remind of "Dr.Giggles"'s. This film had, in the line of what bad movie lovers enjoy, some stupid one-liners, a psycho schizophreniac dentist, some quite sadistic acts of violence (against an idiot fat lady, and many other characters played by so-so actors), a weird and lame ending, a pretty stupid scenario, and some pretty gruesome sequences of dental torture. The story is about a maniac dentist who was put in a mental ward after he had turned crazy and went on a killing spree. That man escapes from the mental ward (and it's a very easy and stupid escape) and hides in another small town, where he becomes the town's dentist. But this man lives with the constant memory of his wife who had cheated on him (and that's what made him insane in the first episode of "The Dentist"). And it haunts him...and the insanity's back in his head, and he's on another killing spree. This is a survivor of the "gore" genre. This film is directed by Brian Yuzna, who also brought us "The Dentist", "Faust:Love of The Damned", "Return of the Living Dead 3", and "Progeny". He's not a great director at all, but in the gore genre, he's one of those rare guys who hang on. Corbin Bernsen is not that bad as the insane dentist, but the rest of the cast is pretty bad. The gore effects are really disgusting, there are zooms of mouths being mutilated, and if you're already afraid of going at the dentist, don't see this. Well, overall, it's a nice movie to watch as a stupid bad movie. It has some funny parts (and it's not always meant to be funny), very disgusting scenes, and a psycho dentist...it says it all...I give it 7/10 (in the cheese meter) 2/10 (as a normal movie)"

"Dr Feinstone has escaped from a mental institution and has taken up an assumed identity in the small town of paradise. Here he hopes to start over. He keeps his impulses to clean up society at bay by cutting himself thus driving his evil out through pain. The local dentist does a lousy job on the Dr's teeth and during an argument falls down some stairs to his doom. Paradise now needs a new dentist. And they get one. At first all goes well but its not long before the old urges come back. How long can the dentist hold them back?Quite a while as it turns out and thats something i didnt like about this movie. It takes too long to get going. in the first movie that didnt bother me so much but here, the backstory isnt quite as good to hold us over to the gorings. When the gorings come, its more of the same delightful torture we got in the first film. In one scene, an unfortunate busybody has a tooth torn out of her gums and the dangling nerve is used as bait in a game of truth or lies...not to be missed."

"I'm surprised people liked the first one enough to make a sequel. I'm glad though, this movie's pretty rad. It's got an intellegent story, and still lots of insanely painful and gory looking stuff. The first Dentist movie is definetly not bad either. I reccommend this and the first movie to anyone and everyone."
