All Dogs Go to Heaven 2
All Dogs Go to Heaven 2 is a 1996 sequel to Don Bluth's 1989 film All Dogs Go to Heaven.
Charlie (Charlie Sheen) and Itchy (Dom Deluise) return to Earth to find Gabriel's horn, but along the way, the two meet up with a young boy named David, who ran away from home.
- Cheap-looking animation, despite being made in the 1990s.
- This could be due to Don Bluth having no involvement with this film, despite having worked on the preceding film. Resulting in a different animator doing the work.
- In the last film, when Charlie left for Heaven, he looks as if he's changed his ways. But here, he acts like he hasn't learned anything from the first film at all.
- Awful plot holes. For example, when Charlie and Itchy see Carface in the bar, he somehow is able to talk to them as a ghost. However, when Charlie and Sasha are about to kiss, Charlie turns back into a ghost and they can't hear him.
- David is basically just a cardboard cutout male version of Anne Marie.
- In fact, he was meant to replace Anne-Marie after her voice actress, Judith Barsi, was brutally killed along with her mother by her abusive father in a double murder-suicide. Although replacing Anne-Marie with David was reasonable and mostly understandable, they could've just replaced Barsi with another child voice actress!
- Carface goes from being an insane, greedy villain in the first movie to Red's bumbling, idiotic lackey.
- Charlie is ACTUALLY friends with Carface and trusts him, despite Carface killing him in the first film.
- The plot is not at all related to the first film and ignores a majority of events from the first film.
- The film was released seven years after the original, making it stale.
- The ending's rather heartwarming.
- Sasha is a good-looking dog and her voice actress, Sheena Easton, has a beautiful singing voice.
- The characters are still likeable for the most part.
- Red is a pretty terrifying villain.
- Some nice songs, especially "It's Too Heavenly Here" (Fun Fact: Jesse Corti, the voice of LeFou from Beauty and the Beast, provides the singing voice of Charlie).
- Adam Wylie did a good job voicing David.
- The film saw a brief resurgence in attention in mid-2020 after it was jokingly mentioned in the Machinima comedy webseries Half-Life VR, but the AI is Self-Aware, with Google reporting an increase in searches containing the film’s title.
