Don't be fooled by the title. Rather than 102, there are 4 reasons to like this sequel to the successful live-action remake of Disney's animated classic. There are the 101 spotted pooches, Glenn Close back in fine form as Cruella De Vil, Oddball--the spotless dalmation pup--and Waddlesworth, a parrot who thinks he's a rottweiler (and is voiced by Monty Python's Eric Idle). There are just as many reasons to be disappointed. Like most sequels, the story line is virtually a rewrite of the first, the secondary casting isn't as interesting, the dialogue merely serves to move the plot along, and the third act substitutes mean-spiritedness for comedy. After a period of rehabilitation, Cruella has returned to her old tricks. Once again, she simply must have a spotted coat and will go to any lengths to get ahold of the 102 dalmatians needed to make one with a hood. She sets her sights on the pups owned by her probation officer, Chloe (Alice Evans), and the owner of a local animal shelter, Kevin (Ioan Gruffudd of Horatio Hornblower). Her servant, Alonso (Tim McInnerny), and flamboyant furrier Monsieur Le Pelt (Gerard Depardieu, in one ridiculous outfit after another) are drafted to aid in her quest. It should come as no surprise that Chloe and Kevin fall in love, Oddball helps to save the day, and Cruella is defeated. Children should enjoy the animal high jinks, but adults are less likely to be enamored by this perfectly competent, but relatively charmless affair. --Kathleen C. Fennessy --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The villain is Glenn Close - Cruella Deville - and she is the Villain of them all. Some have suggested that she'd been born to play this part. Jeff Daniels is no longer the piano player, but a video inventor, and he has to come up with an idea to make money by selling his ideas to a kid. Not a bad premise, actually, since they are the ones who do most of the playing.
The ensemble cast includes Deville's two bumblers who are also worth viewing, and they provide much of the laughter in this film. Lots of it! Close is laughable, too, but she does manage to control her dignity to the end, after she looks like something the barnyard spat out.
A great film, but it has to be judged on its own merits, and not compared with the cartoon. There is no comparison.
The maccaw should have been named Jar Jar instead of Waddlesworth -- it was pointless, annoying, and dropped my raiting from two stars down to one.
Go to some garage sales and find the original children's books. Read to your children; don't buy this movie.
This time Cruella has been rehabilitated by a doctor aptly named Pavlov. Chloe [Alice Evans], her probabtion officer, doesn't buy the change, but Cruella ["Call me Ella, not Cruella!"]really does act like a changed woman. She has Alonso [Tim McInnerny], her manservant, lock away her fur coats, since the sight of them now makes her sick. She buys a failing animal shelter and transforms it into a showplace. She even has her own dog, a dreadful thing that looks like a rat. [Why on earth they decided to make this particular dog her pet is beyond me.] The world adores Cruella. One day something happens that reverses the effects of her rehab. Cruella is back with a vengeance, and some of the finest Dalmatian puppies happen to belong to Chloe. As in the original, every character but Cruella fumbles everything, and, for the most part, it's up to the dogs to save themselves.
Glenn Close again plays Cruella. Again she is delightful.Read more ›
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.

What a waste. Disney doesn't know what to make anymore, so they make sequels out of films. Sometimes sequels are better than the original. "Toy Story 2" was. This was a nutty film. Read morePublished on July 5 2002 by Josh P.
