With tensions running high between Jack & Fog over plans to drill on his land that abuts the wilderness preserve, Fog announces to the whole town that he isn't drilling for oil - but is opening a natural spring water business. Jack doesn't believe him & the night of the big annoucement he is jailed, suspected of sabotaging Fog's well. But Ben & Mark soon uncover a secret that Fog's business partners aren't telling him about. In fact this new venture turns out to be more than Fog could have bargined for. It is a race to prove Jack's innocence & uncover the truth before Mark is taken back to the city to live in a foster home. Written by Anonymous

quality family friendly viewing
11 November 2007 | by disdressed12See all my reviews

i liked this movie a bit more than the first one.this one has more of a story,the characters have a bit more to do and the pace is quicker.there is some action,though i still wouldn't call it action packed.like the first,this is a decent family movie,though there are a few mild scenes of peril and some mild language.again,it might be a bit too much for very young children.still,it is quality family viewing.there's no real violence or sexual content.and there is a bit of humour in this one,which there really wasn't in the first one.there is also a bit more realism to this movie and it has a message of sorts,but it is not at all preachy.this movie isn't for everybody's taste,but if you like your movies low key and family friendly,this might be your movie.for me,Gentle Ben 2 is a 7/10
