What parents need to know

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.

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?

QUALITY

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.

Families can talk 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?

Excellent movie

I think that the film is excellent because it sets alot of important themes A family is more than rules, trusting one another, why you shouldn't try to be something your not, and above all this film also tells kids why we shouldn't run away from home because it sets four good reasons with what happened to Scamp when he ran away. 1. There was no safe place for him to go not even the junkyard was safe. 2. There was no one (not even Lady or Tramp) around to protect him. 3. He got into some bad trouble 4. And last he almost got killed like 5 times from cars in the street, running from a train, Buster saying he would kill him if he was related to Tramp, and Reggie nearly clobbering him twice

okish movie with adventure and scares.

Lady and the tramp 2 is pritty good. There seems to be a bit more adventure than the first.Although with adventure also unlocks some street dog vilonce wich young kids will most likely find scary. But even though there is some mild vilonce there are plenty of good messages about family and believing in yourself.
