What makes this sequel work is the charm of its story.
50
Offers up the absolute bare necessities of a sequel.

Note that it took six writers to come up with the script for The Jungle Book 2. Note that Rudyard Kipling isn't one of them.

Entertainment Weekly
The same money-minded dreamers who found a way to ''Return to Neverland'' have hacked a path back to Baloo heaven.

New York Daily News
It's a perfectly acceptable short-term baby-sitter. Just make sure the original gets a fair viewing first.
50
At its core, a movie for children. There is no hidden adult story line, not much sexual innuendo and very little dry humor.

New York Post
This is a by-the-numbers rehash that will leave anyone much over 5 enormously grateful that, if you duck out before the lengthy end credits, it lasts just over an hour.
50
ReelViews
This lame animated fable, despite having "direct-to-video" written all over it, was released by Disney, in an act of unparalleled greed and desperation, into multiplexes.
50
Children should enjoy Jungle Book 2 just fine. Adults will wonder why anyone bothered.

Chicago Sun-Times
Thin and unsatisfying.
25
The overall result of this remake is something as safe and dull as oatmeal.
