Shadow, Sassy and Chance are back! It's been three years since their trek through the woods and over the mountains. Now the family lives in San Fransisco and they're taking a vacation in Canada. Only problem, the pets escape from the airport while being put in the cargo area of the plane. Now their family is in Canada and the pets are all alone in San Fransisco. They meet scruffy bully dogs and a gang of rebel dogs all abandoned and have started their own group. Also looking for them is a "Blood Red Van" driven by bumbling dog catchers. Also Chance meets a girl dog and it's love at first bite. Written by Dylan Self <robocoptng986127@aol.com>

Once Again, Another Good But Bland Movie.
22 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Homeward Bound 2: Lost In San Francisco is the sequel to Homeward Bound, The Incredible Journey. And unfortunately, I didn't really care much for this movie either. I mean that this movie is like the previous movie, it is rather bland. But although this movie is rather bland, I still saw it is a movie that is enjoyable and quite entertaining. While I think that this movie is a bland movie, my overall opinion with this movie is the fact that it is still an entertaining movie that is quite fun and enjoyable. This movie may not be one of the greatest movies ever made, but still, there is something about this movie that I like, and so because of that, I need to give this movie a positive rating. My overall consensus is that despite the fact that it has got quite a few flaws in it, this movie is nevertheless a very enjoyable movie that is good entertainment for the family. Like the previous movie, this film gets another rating of seven stars out of ten for being a movie that while not a perfect film, is still an entertaining one. So all in all, this is a good movie, not a great one, but a good one.

I hate to say this, but as with the previous movie, the biggest flaw is the talking animals. Not only are there the three that we are familiar with, there are a lot more. If this was an animated movie, I probably would have been able to coup with the animals talking, but considering the fact that this was a live-action movie, making the animals talk was a big error with the film. I'm sorry if that offends anybody, but the talking animals were something that I just didn't really care for. But all in all, this still is a movie that is enjoyable all the way through from start to finish. You might like it, so go ahead and watch it. Just because I wasn't crazy about it, doesn't mean you won't be crazy about it.

I've said this already, but I'll go ahead and say it once more, this movie is far from being a perfect movie, yet it is still likable and watchable. So because of that, you should probably watch it just for some entertainment. Homeward Bound 2: Lost In San Francisco is all in all, an entertaining movie that is likable in at least one way. Watch this movie if you haven't done it already, because who knows, it is possible that you may end up loving this movie a whole lot. Well watch it anyway, because you might really enjoy it.

7/10
