Remake of the 1958 sci-fi horror classic about a deadly blob from another planet which consumes everything in its path. Teenagers attempt without success to warn the townspeople, who refuse to take them seriously.

A batch of unhatched critter eggs are mistaken for Easter eggs by the country-folk inhabitants of Grover's Bend and, before long, the ferocious furballs are on the rampage again.Written by

The Playboy magazine Charlie finds is the issue from March 1979. It is shown that the female form Lee takes is the centerfold for the issue, however the actress that played female Lee (Roxanne Kernohan) was never in Playboy magazine; the centerfold for that issue was Denise McConnell. See more »
(at around 38 mins) When Lee's appearance is turned from being a 'Nothing-Face' into the Playboy centerfold model, a staple, although oversized, also materializes on Lee since it was visible when the picture of the centerfold was looked at, but when Lee's appearance changes from that of the model into the Hungry Heifer Manager (at around 50 mins), glasses do not materialize on Lee's face, even though the restaurant manager was wearing glasses at that time.

After I saw the first Critters film, I wanted to see the sequel, Critters 2: The Main Course (the subtitle is mysteriously missing from the film's IMDb page). After seeing the trailer (and Siskel & Ebert's review on it), I really thought this movie was gonna blow. I thought this would be like Batman & Robin, a goofy, light-hearted sequel to a dark, epic, bad-ass film. I then sat down to watch the movie (ironically, before Easter, the holiday that this movie takes place in), and thankfully, it wasn't like Batman & Robin.
This sequel gives us back Bradley Brown, the boy from the first film, who has grown up a bit. Time has passed since the Crite incident, but people still remember the Brown family. Crite eggs are found, but are mistaken for Easter eggs. The eggs end up getting into the town, and when they hatch... All Hell breaks loose! This is a sweet sequel. The puppeteers really showed off their abilities here (case in point: The Criteball, which is a highlight.) I love Bradley Brown's character, and I'm glad that they picked him for a Brown family member to bring back.
Also, just like the predecessor, the bounty hunters are still cool as ever. Surprisingly, Ug is still disguised as Johnny Steele.
So far, this is the last Critters movie that I saw. I plan on seeing the other two, but have second thoughts on them. Critters 3 looks okay, and Critters 4 just looks boring.
Another thing, I believe that the rating for this film on here should be up a bit, at almost the same rating as the first film.
