Andy Barclay has been placed in a foster home after the tragic events of the first film, since his mother was committed. In an attempt to save their reputation, the manufacturers of Chucky reconstruct the killer doll, to prove to the public that nothing was wrong with it in the first place. In doing so, they also bring the soul of serial killer Charles Lee Ray back to life. As Chucky tries to locate Andy, the body count rises. Will Andy be able to escape, or will Chucky succeed in possessing his body?Written by
According to commentary by writer Don Mancini on the DVD of the first film, the reason the rest of the "Child's Play" films are released by Universal instead of MGM/UA (despite the first film being highly successful for them), was that United Artists was about to be bought out by a company that wanted to maintain a "family friendly" slate of films. The property was then gladly sold to Universal. Ironically, Qintex, the company that made the bid to purchase United Artists, dropped the deal not long after the film set up shop somewhere else.

Numerous scenes cut from the original version appear on the USA network's version:
Two different scenes with Joanne and Phil discussing Andy and the adoption agency letting them keep the children they adopt.
An argument between two men in the dark after the worker is electrocuted and the sound of Chucky running. The man lands differently after smashing through the glass window after being electrocuted.
Before the assistant calls his girlfriend, he calls his wife and tells her he has to work late.
A different ending shows Chucky's face being created through the machines, then Chucky gives an evil smile, much like the beginning of Child's Play 3.
A scene where Kyle stops in an alleyway to search for the newspaper delivery truck with Andy and Chucky in it.
Kyle tells Chucky "playtime's over" just before he gets disfigured.
Kyle assures Andy that he can make his way past the eyeball machine while trying to escape the factory.
A scene right after Phil nearly runs into a Play Pal's truck, Joanne asks Andy if he's alright.
A different ending is shown than the one in the theatrical release. It shows Kyle and Andy coming out of the factory, after Andy asks where home is, Kyle responds by saying she has no idea then says it looked like she was stuck with Andy, which is followed by a scene in the factory where Chucky's face is made with an evil grin on it.
The not-so-innocent movie about a child's doll continues with Andy Barkley (Alex Vincent) being sent to live in a foster care home while his mom is recovering from a mental hospital. Nobody believes Andy's story about Chucky the killer doll, but that soon changes when the doll returns, possessed once again by serial killer Charles Lee Ray. It goes on another rampage, this time trying to free his evil soul from the doll and transfer into Andy's body.
The plot's pacing, script, and music score work fine in this movie, with a some good humor and suspense, and some creepy moments. The acting was pretty good for the most part - especially enjoyed the characters of Andy and Kyle. Vincent portrayed Andy with innocence but determination and Christine Elise gave a rebellious yet tender-hearted and strong portrayal of foster teenager Kyle. Brad Dourif gave another sinister, dark, and sarcastically funny portrayal of Chucky.
The overall horror elements may seem tame by more recent standards, but it's still a rather entertaining horror sequel.
