Synopsis

This sequel to the 1996 live-action remake of the cartoon classic has Cruella De Vil (Glenn Close) being released from prison on good behavior swearing that she will have nothing to do with dog fur ever again. She, however, cannot keep this promise and soon is plotting another scheme to get her ultimate Dalmatian coat.

Dove Review

Although there are a few scary moments, including a villain picking up a nasty looking knife with which he plans on skinning the puppies, the 5 and 6-year-olds who attended the screening with me seemed more entranced than frightened. They protected Uncle Phil. Zany, full of slapstick humor and some tender moments, 102 Dalmatians should be a hit with the younger crowd.

Other: Some loud, scary music; Cruella is a frightening creation, so parents should be there to reassure.
