Product Description


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

5.0 out of 5 stars On it's own merit, it's good!!! April 20 2003
Format:VHS Tape
This is not the cartoon, but it's a far better movie simply because it has the people in it, and it can go for more credibility.
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Miserable Sequel Jan. 4 2003
This movie was terrible. The plot is very thin, even for kids, and Gérard Depardieu is a real flop. (Why isn't his PR photo from this movie at the mulletsgalore.com website?) The leading couple is cuter and more believable than the current issue 101 movie, but their love story is poorly written and very superficial.
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Darker than the First and a Terrific Glenn Close April 10 2002
Upfront, it should be noted that "102 Dalmatians" is far darker and more violent than the original - either the live action or animated versions. That said, this is one of those rare sequels that actually surpasses the first film in a number of ways. First, the story is less ingrained in our heads, so its fresher and unexpectedly more effective. Second, there are plot twists to rival a gangster flick, with Cruella DeVil first framed as a puppy lover, and then as the nasty character we all love to hate. Third - and most impressive - is Glenn Close, who chews up every scene here in a Golden Globe nominated performance that makes her far scarier and more effective as a villain. She's almost channeling the spirit of Alex in "Fatal Attraction" with her vile manner and spitted dialogue. This is an actress at the top of her form - part Alex and part Norma Desmond (who she played to raves, and a Tony Award, in "Sunset Boulvard.) Bluntly said, Close gives a tremendous performance as the puppy-coat wearing diva - it's high camp at its best, and she makes the film soar in unexpected, hystrionic ways. This Ella-Cruella is one of a kind.

2.0 out of 5 stars Acclaimed actress goes to the dogs...again! March 16 2002
The idea of movie sequels took off thirty years ago and has been going nonstop ever since. As an idea, it makes sense. TV series have conditioned several generations of viewers to want to see the same characters and often essentially the same story over and over again. A movie sequel is usually a fairly safe financial bet, as it can be expected, on average, to take in about seventy percent of the original's gross. So, it was only natural that Disney wanted to cash in on the success of the live action version of 101 Dalmatians. The result, 102 Dalmatians, failed. There were several reasons for this, but the main one may be that the original story is self-contained. Despite the sequel's attempts to be different, in the end it all boils down to the same thing: Cruella DeVille will go to any lengths to obtain the puppies from which she plans to make a Dalmatian fur coat.
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pointless sequel. Sept. 18 2001
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars It was goofy!
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 more
