A hilarious adventure, starring the audacious Oddball, the spotless Dalmatian puppy on a search for her rightful spots, and Waddlesworth, the wisecracking, delusional macaw who thinks he's a Rottweiler. Barking mad, this unlikely duo leads a posse of puppies on a mission to outfox the wildly wicked, ever-scheming Cruella De Vil (Glenn Close). Filled with chases, close calls, hilarious antics, and thrilling escapes all the way from London through the streets of Paris -- and a Parisian bakery.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: This sequel to the live-action 101 Dalmatians is simply more of the same. Critics say it also drags in parts, potentially boring children, and that it's too violent for a G-rated movie.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that 102 Dalmatians is the sequel to the live-action 101 Dalmatians released in 2000, and it has a good many scenes of comic jeopardy to both dogs and humans. Kids who are comfortable with larger-than-life danger, cackling villains, and puppies being stuffed into burlap bags (all accompanied by suspenseful music) should have no problem discerning that nothing is real. But for younger or more sensitive little ones, it could be scary. The central story involves Cruella De Vil's attempts to dognap puppies, kill them, and make a fur coat out of their pelts. She’s an iconic villain and there's no end to the absurd mayhem she and her partners-in-crime cause. A few scenes show Cruella smoking; she proposes a toast with a silver goblet; celebratory champagne is poured on another occasion.
