Storyline

Fritz, now married and with a son, is desperate to escape from the domestic hell he now finds himself in. Lighting up a joint, he begins to dream about his eight other lives, hoping to find one that will provide a pleasant distraction. The drug-induced journeys he takes include spells as an astronaut, Hitler's psychiatrist, a courier travelling in hostile territory during a race war, and as a pupil of an Indian guru living in the sewers of New York. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

I thought it was pretty good
20 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It does have its problems, but I liked it, and I do think there are worse sequels out there. I enjoyed Fritz the Cat and was all for a sequel, and I got a pretty good film. The story structure is episodic and there are moments that I would deem strange, but along the way I noticed some improvements as well. While I loved the unique look of Fritz the Cat, the animation here is really good here as well, even more colourful and vibrant than before. Plus the pacing I felt was much more secure first time around. The script is witty and funny, the soundtrack is hip and cool, the voice acting is good and Fritz still has both his hypocrisy and likability. Some of the supporting characters aren't as likable, and don't get enough screen time to shine though. Still, it is a pretty good film. 7/10 Bethany Cox
