A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this movie.

Positive Messages

Strong ties among family and friends are illustrated. A selfish and negative character, originally looked up to by Scamp, is ultimately revealed to be a poor role model who loses friends because of his bad attitude.

Violence & Scariness

Reggie, a menacing street dog, may be somewhat scary to younger children. A snarling, snapping Reggie chases Scamp and later fights with Tramp in a pound. Younger kids may feel sad or scared when Scamp appears to be briefly knocked out in the brawl.

Sexy Stuff
Language

A cartoon dog uses the word "butt" during a dogfight.

Consumerism
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this film explores how kids want to break free and test boundaries as they grow up. Reggie, a menacing street dog, may be somewhat scary to younger children.

What's the story?

In LADY AND THE TRAMP II: SCAMP'S ADVENTURE, Lady and the Tramp are now the parents of three adorable and obedient daughter pups and a rambunctious son named Scamp (voiced by Scott Wolf), who longs for "a world without fences." He gets his chance when he meets a gang of freewheeling junkyard dogs led by the intimidating Buster (voiced by Chazz Palminteri). Desperately wanting to fit in with the junkyard dog gang, Scamp gets entangled in misadventures and falls for a streetwise but good-hearted puppy named Angel (voiced by Alyssa Milano). While Angel and Scamp look out for each other, Scamp's family desperately misses him. When Scamp learns that Tramp is a legend among the junkyard dogs, he can't believe his father gave up street life to become a pampered house dog. Conversely, Angel can't believe Scamp traded a loving family for a shifty pack of strays.

Is it any good?

While the story and musical sequences can't measure up to the beloved Disney classic, this is still a fairly entertaining sequel. It should delight kids simply as a fable about a youth anxious to test his wings.

Adults will enjoy seeing many of the original characters, including Jim Dear and Darling, Jock the Scottish Terrier, Trusty the Bloodhound, and even Aunt Sarah and her scheming Siamese cats. In homage to the original movie, they share a plate of spaghetti and meatballs at Tony's restaurant. Children and adults will enjoy Scamp's journey, the cast of characters he meets, and the lessons about appreciating family and accepting who you are instead of trying to fit in with the crowd.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about why Scamp felt as though he didn't belong at home and wanted to strike out on his own. Why must Tramp discipline Scamp when he breaks rules? Older kids might relate to a scene where Scamp confronts his dad about his past as a street dog. Why do parents try to protect their kids from making the same mistakes they did? Does running away solve anything?
