Film Review

3 out of 5

Glenn Close returns as villainous Cruella De Vil in this follow-up to Disney's 1996 live-action hit 101 Dalmatians. This is as much fun as the first film, with supposedly reformed fur-lover Cruella released after a spell in prison and funding an animal rescue operation. Before you can say "cutesy wootsie puppies", she's got outrageous designer Gérard Depardieu preparing to make a dalmatian overcoat. Ioan Gruffudd and Alice Evans provide the romantic interest - Jeff Daniels and Joely Richardson were obviously otherwise engaged - but it's Close and Eric Idle (as the voice of parrot Waddlesworth) who provide the laughs. Adults may find it disappointing that the dogs can't speak (as they did in the classic animated version of the tale), but children will no doubt be enchanted by the cuddly pooches.

Plot Summary

Comedy adventure sequel starring Glenn Close and featuring Gérard Depardieu. Cruella De Vil leaves prison a seemingly changed woman. But she soon returns to her wicked ways, teaming up with a French designer in an attempt to create the ultimate dalmatian-puppy coat.
