Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 (Europe) or region Free DVD Player in order to play.  It is rare to find a sequel which outdoes the original concept, particularly in the world of Disney movies, but 102 Dalmatians is an exception to the rule. The high jinks and action is back, with an additional puppy--the lovable Oddball, who has no spots--and of course the cruellest of villains, Cruella DeVil. After two years of rehabilitation Cruella is released into London's community once more--but this time insists on being called Ella, "Cruella just sounds so cruel"--but has the evil one really changed her ways to become not only a pillar of society, but also a dog-loving activist? Her probation officer Chloe is not convinced and added to that her dalmatians have just had puppies. Glenn Close is back in fine form as Cruella--this may be the defining role of her career-and with a great range of costumes and hair-dos she adds fantastic menace to the character. Added to this is the joy of having two British actors in the role of dog-loving humans (Ioan Gruffudd as Kevin and Alice Evans as Chloe)--instead of having to listen to the cod Dick Van Dyke English accent that Disney seems to love. The film also offers an extrovert turn by Gerard Depardieu as the flamboyant French Fashion designer Monsieur Le Pelt. Through Le Pelt this film does make some important references to the fur trade and the "No Logo-esque" fashion production methods--adding political humour for adults. However as always the true stars of the films are the animal actors themselves, with the talking parrot Waddlesworth who thinks he is a rottweiler (voiced by Eric Idle) and of course the true star Oddball--the cutest puppy since the promotion of a certain toilet roll!

Freshly-released from prison, the infamous dog-botherer Cruella DeVil (Glenn Close) is apparently a reformed woman. So much so in fact, that she now owns her own dog shelter. But of course, it's not long before she's up to her old tricks, enlisting the help of Parisian designer Le Pelt (Gerard Depardieu), as she again attempts to realise her dream of owning a coat made from the fur of dalmation puppies. Never mind though, probation officer Chloe (Alice Evans) is keeping a watchful eye on Cruella, and with a little canine help she's going to do her best to foil the fur-lover's evil antics.
