The comedy is flat, the jokes are stale, the characters are static, and the plot is nonexistent.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Inspector Gadget 2 is the 2003 sequel to Inspector Gadget that stars French Stewart as the beloved 1980s cartoon detective. Similar to the cartoon, Gadget tends to have malfunctions with the arsenal contained inside of him, which leads to frequent moments of cartoonish and slapstick violence. Also, there is some consumerism, as Dunkin' Donuts and McDonald's products are prominently featured in scenes. In addition, the Gadgetmobile (voiced by D.L. Hughley) seems to exist solely to toss in the most cliched and stereotypical of African-American slang terms at times when it would be "comedic" to do so. In spite of these issues, overall this version of Inspector Gadget, if a bit dated and certainly not a masterpiece, is essentially pure entertainment for entertainment's sake -- something both kids new to the world of Inspector Gadget and parents who grew up on the cartoon will enjoy.
