This is a true gem in the Gremlins movies. Much better than the first. This time, you get a good look at to why all the Gremlins are attacking people (Something that was avoided in the first film). Pretty much all the original acters were in it (Though I find it hard the old guy and his wife survived the snow plow in the first one [Plus everyone acted as if they died]), the old guy died very quikly in the film. But does everything that girl think about bad? First Christmas, now Abraham Lincon, she needs a life.

Zach Galligan, the star of the firstGremlins, is back, along with Phoebe Cates, his girlfriend from the first film. They're both working in an ultramodern skyscraper owned by a Donald Trump clone (a hilarious John Glover). Galligan's furry little buddy is captured by a mad scientist, who not only helps it multiply, but invests the nasty, scaly offspring with intelligence and the ability to talk. (Watch for the one that has Tony Randall's voice.) What follows is imaginative mayhem that spoofs old movies, modern television, and the conveniences of postmodern technology. In some ways, the sequel is even more inventive and laughter-inducing than the original.--Marshall Fine
