Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the plot includes references to Hell and the Devil, who is portrayed in the character Red. This may frighten the youngest children. Christian families may object to the characterization of death and the afterlife. The plot has tense moments and some frightening themes, but carries with it an uplifting message of working together and warns against selfishness. While the film is aimed at children 5 to 7, some older children (12 and up) may also enjoy the film for its animation.

Is It Any Good?
All Dogs Go to Heaven's everydog, Charlie B. Barkin, is back in a sequel that's even more off-kilter than the popular original. In this bizarre coming-of-age story, Charlie leaves dog Heaven, confronts the Devil, and learns to be less selfish. ALL DOGS GO TO HEAVEN 2 is a fast-moving tale that will compel most viewers simply because it is so unusual. The characters have flaws that give them room to grow in the film.
The film may remind parents of former Disney animator Don Bluth, who animated the 1989 original. The film retains much of what made its predecessor a success. The songs are unfortunately lackluster, but the voice actors (including Charlie Sheen, Dom DeLuise, George Hearn and Ernest Borgnine) bring their characters to life.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
