A family film whose infectious, crowd-pleasing song-and-dance numbers justify a 105-minute running length when the pedestrian story can’t.

An improvement over the 1995 original, this quasi-sequel mixes adventure with humor, fun performances, and a canny understanding of late 1990s-style video games.

A morality play that has much in common with the so-called “revisionist” Westerns of recent years.

A study in mood and emotion, about using the canvas of film to convey to the audience the inner feelings of the characters.

Although the surface tone is breezy and cheeky, there’s a lot going on beneath the facade.

Almost seems too bizarre to be true, even though it is - an inadvertent success story that illustrates there’s more than one way to stardom.
