Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The tone is ideal for a family audience. The length is perfect. And the sequence of last-minute surprises elicits tears and laughter in just the right proportions."
‑ Kevin McManus, Washington Post
"It does a better job than most family films in projecting a child's-eye view of a world where siblings and pets are equally cherished members of the family."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Definitely not as good as the first."
‑ Heather Boerner, Common Sense Media
"This sequel is serviceable family-market fodder, but even little children might expect something more sophisticated these days."
‑ Joseph McBride, Boxoffice Magazine
"Full of the cute doggie tricks, big noisy adventure sequences and the usual anthropomorphic bits of action and dialogue that children will love."
‑ Liz Braun, Jam! Movies
"Wee urbanites might find Disney's scorn for city life a shade offputting, but if preview audiences are any indication, little ones will laugh their tiny heinies off at the humor herein."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"Taken on its own entirely hokey terms, Homeward Bound II: Lost in San Francisco is a charming romp of a talking animal movie."
‑ Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle
"So pathetic, that the filmmakers are not above making gay jokes about animals in San Francisco!"
‑ Greg Muskewitz, eFilmCritic.com
"The plot is nothing more than a recycled version of the first one, but hey, it is still funny and there are many great lines."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"Like the first Homeward Bound, this one has some very nice elements, including wonderful camera work."
‑ Jane Ganahl, San Francisco Examiner
"The first movie was good-hearted and I liked it, but since then Babe has raised the bar, with animals that not only talk more realistically, but say things that are wittier and more pungent."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"It's more padded than Lassie's bed. But 9-and-unders were having a tail-wagging good time."
‑ Susan Wloszczyna, USA Today
"Somebody needs to invest in a few leashes."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"A silly little trifle with more wisecracks than laughs."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
