Just as good as part 1, but not as good as part 3.
8 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just 2 months after renting the original, I thought I'd give this one a go. Truth be told, it was actually in 1998 I started to gain interest in Charlie Band's films. Now, onto the movie. Sorry for the short intro.

This time around, the story revolves around a neglected rich boy Brendan (Played by Kevin R. Connors) whose governess is on the verge of sending him to boot camp. It isn't long though, before Brendan finds everyone's favorite miniature dinosaurs. Then, the fun begins.

There are some rather silly moments, but they can also be funny, such as Ivan the Gardner, and Hiro, the karaoke loving chef, the latter being my favorite character.


EXTRAS: At the beginning, a "Stay Tuned for Moonbeam's Videozone" bumper appears and the videozone has a behind-the-scenes, an interview with Margot Kidder about Beanstalk, and trailers for Dragonworld, Pet Shop, and Remote.
