A batch of unhatched critter eggs are mistaken for Easter eggs by the country-folk inhabitants of Grover's Bend and, before long, the ferocious furballs are on the rampage again.Written by

(at around 1h 8 mins) When the Critters are rolling together to the Polar Ice Burger, you can see in several shots that the furry balls are connected together to some device pulling them all along (there are often visible wires). See more »

Much better than the subsequent films, but not nearly as good as the first. Settings, characters, nudity, and other important basics are pretty much the same as the surprisingly-good original. The movie? Well those furry devils aren't all gone and we get to see the main characters a few years later. Of course looking at it as an adult now I can saw the timeline wasn't very good - not enough time passed for the age of the characters involved or all that the back story claimed happened.
"Critters 2", however, drives the point home just in case you couldn't figure it out. The Critters now have more scenes involving "mischief" as they tear up restaurants in all sorts of silly ways, accompanied by sight gags, slapstick and plenty of cartoon sound effects. The Critters also develop the ability to speak broken English, too, only adding to their status as Gremlins clones. While "Critters" was far from a serious horror film, Critters 2 starts the series down a more humorous path that a lot of fans didn't exactly cotton to.
Overall rating: 6 out of 10.
