Several people are hunted by a cruel serial killer who kills his victims in their dreams. While the survivors are trying to find the reason for being chosen, the murderer won't lose any chance to kill them as soon as they fall asleep.
An army of malevolent little monsters take over a high-tech corporate skyscraper when a cute and intelligent exotic pet is exposed to water. The "Mogwai's" owner joins forces with the Trump-like head of the corporation to regain control. Written by

Although sunlight and bright light is supposed to be deadly to Mogwais, at the start of the film Gizmo climbs out of the ruins of Mr. Wing's shop into broad bright daylight will no ill effects. (While one could argue it was too overcast, and therefore not harmful, this may still be considered a plot hole). See more »

Daffy Duck looks onto the screen and comments on the length of the credits, saying things like "Long, isn't it?", "Patently ridiculous!", and "You're still lurking about? Don't you people have homes?". See more »
After having a bout of nostalgia, I just finished watching a Gremlins 2-pack DVD set tonight.
I have to say, I thought the first one holds up fairly well.
However, the sequel sadly does not. I'm really quite surprised at the high number of positive reviews here.
This film is terrible.
Don't get me wrong, I love Joe Dante and I can see where he was coming from. He knew it was a totally unnecessary sequel, so he wanted to spoof the whole thing and just have a good time.
He really should've stayed home. This is quite possibly the most self-indulgent, stupid, shallow mess of a film I've ever seen.
There's virtually no plot to speak of. The supposed "main" characters run around like morons amongst a barrage of childish Gremlin gags. Most of which, are plain idiotic and verging on embarrassing.
I felt for the actors here, as they really gave it their all.
I know Dante is obsessed with Warner Bros cartoons, but including Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck in this film was totally unjustified and insipid. Their scene couldn't have been less funny and I can't believe Dante got away with it.
In fact, I can't believe he got away with the whole movie.
