Storyline

All the characters of the warm and fluffy "Lilo and Stitch" are back! In "Stitch! - The Movie", Stitch, Jumba, and Peakley are all living with Lilo and Nani. But no one knows that Jumba had secretly deactivated all 625 of his other experiments and brought them with him. The ex-captain Gantu, hired by Jumba's former partner, Dr. Jacques Von Hamsterveil, goes to find them, and captures Jumba to interrogate him into telling where they are. Now, Lilo and Stitch have to save Stitch's ohana from being used for chaos. Two experiments are activated in this movie: Experiment 221, "Sparky", with the ability to cause big electric surges, and Experiment 625, who has all the abilities of Stitch, but is lazier. At least he makes good sandwiches! Written by Anonymous

While good in pieces this is not a movie by any stretch of the imagination, its just some episodes from the TV show
27 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

First a couple of things: 1. Despite what the box says the movie is only one hour long, a scant number of seconds over 60 minutes.

2. Only two of experiments actually show up prior to the last two minutes of the movie.

3. This is a rip off if you BUY the film since its nothing more than what should have been the pilot for the show. This should have been shown on TV as part of the show and not as a "movie".

That said its not bad.

Its a "movie" that does not work as a whole but in moments and in throw away lines and actions. It also had a great villain in what is the French Taunter from Holy Grail in hamster form.

The plot, which is more like a hope than a real plot has Gantu being hired by the hamster to get the previous experiments and what happens as a result. There's a bit more to it then that but since its not much more I feel I have to leave something for you to find out on your own.

As I said this is a movie of moments which is what you'll take away from this attack on your wallet by Disney. The moments, and there are many, will have you smiling, or laughing at there cleverness, a cleverness who's level is so high you'll wonder what the hell happened to the rest of the movie...

Is this worth seeing? Yes, but rent it or borrow it, do not buy this.

Will I see it again? On cable or TV.

Frankly this is one of those things that should have worked but doesn't. Its annoying since its as if they had ideas but no idea how to string them into a viable plot...(then again its TV episodes) Allowing that the animation is by turns good, garbage or passable, one wonders if they had three levels of animators working on this each doing a different shot in turn.

This is, on the whole, nowhere near as good as the real movie, who's ending it wipes away completely with talk that the sister and her boyfriend haven't dated, or that some of the events alluded to couldn't have happened in the stills simply because there are now the new creatures. Its as if a few weeks have passed since the end of the theatrical movie, not the year or so that is implied by the end stills.

In pieces and on a level for unstained silliness this is the equal of the first film, but only in the quick moments that never gel.

(This is not a ringing endorsement of the movie only that it should be seen in what ever way puts as little money in the coffers of the Disney company) and
