I think they went for too much of a Looney Tunes approach with this one. Too goofy to take serious.

Gremlins is a masterpiece. This is also a masterpiece. Best sequel in the game!

I’ve never seen this sequel until now and i gotta say this thing is more fun than it has any right to be. While i loved the original Gremlins for its boundless creativity in staging the animatronics but was a bit disaffected regarding its over-the-top Spielbergian 80’s cheesiness in its portrayal of characters and setting, the sequel goes all-in on that so much that it becomes kind of a surreal satire of its own genre tropes, while in the second half, it doesn’t even pretend to care about telling a story and just has fun with its creatures, which is what we all came for anyway. Gremlins 2 is the perfect guilty pleasure and i say that as someone who is notoriously averse to most kinds of “guilty pleasure” cultural artifact.

Joe Dante turns the Gremlins into f***ing clown shoes in the atrocious sequel, Gremlins 2: The New Batch. This time the film is all satire and goofiness...and no horror. The Gremlin designs are cartoonish and fake looking, lacking any sense of danger or terror. The performances are also pathetic, and don't even work in a campy, satirical way. And worst of all, the film tries to be meta, but it all falls flat. It's almost as if Gremlins 2: The New Batch was intended to undermine and lampoon the series, which it succeeds at brilliantly.

Its not the classic that the first movie is but there is some great practical effects and jokes that make Gremlins 2 worthy of your time. I do find it to be a little too long but its still fun.
