...GREMLINS 2: THE NEW BATCH speaks to the gleeful hell-raising monster in each of us, and it speaks with...verve, cleverness and good humor...
New York Times
4 stars out of 5 -- [T]his splendid sequel prioritizes comedy....Full of inspired ideas...
An hilarious sequel featuring equal parts creature slapstick for the small fry and satirical barbs for adults. Full Review
Speaks to the gleeful hell-raising monster in each of us, and it speaks with much more verve, cleverness and good humor than the film on which it is based. Add this to the very short list of sequels that neatly surpass their predecessors.
New York Times
... is one of the funniest comedies of its time, a veritable live-action cartoon from Joe Dante at his most unrestrained. Full Review
There's almost enough in-joke ingenuity to justify the total absence of plot. Full Review
Just when they thought they were safe, young sweethearts Billy (Zach Galligan) and Kate (Phoebe Cates) from Joe Dante's GREMLINS have moved on to the Big Apple, landed jobs in a high-tech office park, and have met up with Gizmo once again. When a series of accidents creates a whole new generation of Gremlins, the three pals must use everything they know to prevent another comic catastrophe. The monsters wreck havoc at Clamp Industries, the "smart building" where Billy and Kathy work, creating madness and mayhem for the Donald Trump-like owner, Daniel Clamp (John Glover), who sees the invasion as yet another opportunity for media attention. But, when the monsters invade "Splice of Life," the top-secret genetics laboratory housed at Clamp Industries, the Gremlins develop new genetically altered powers that make them even harder to destroy. This highly inventive sequel to GREMLINS, successfully combines wicked horror and dark humor in an outrageous and eerily realistic post modern setting.
- Cameo appearances by screenwriter, Charlie Haas, as Casper; composer Jerry Goldsmith as a customer at the frozen yogurt counter; and real-life movie critic Leonard Maltin, as himself (on the cable access show "Movie Police", he is giving the original GREMLINS a bad review).
- Cameo appearance by SNL's Julia Sweeney as the receptionist at "Splice of Life."
Two different versions of the film were made, one for theatrical release and one for video. In the theatrical version the film appears to begin to burn, in the video release the segment simulates a broken VCR.
