It has been stated before me that Disney's direct to video sequels have been utterly lacking. While I do wholeheartedly agree on some of them, (like Pocahontas 2, and Belle's Magical World), this movie proved that movies from Walt's era can, not only have room for, but can work with, sequels.
Without further adieu. This movie is very good. It has a very nice voice cast with Alyssa Milano, from 'Who's the Boss?', who plays Angel. Scott Wolf (Party of Five) as Scamp, Jeff Bennett (too many to count) as Tramp, and Jodi Benson (Little Mermaid) as her second incompetent mother, Lady.
The characters are a bit softened up in this movie as it's actually aimed at an audience, but they are still very lovable. Scamp just wants to get away from his 'cushy-pillow life' to be with the 'Junkyard Dogs', (a dog gang that I can only compare to the "droogs" from "A Clockwork Orange". Having devilish fun at others expense, of course much lighter and softer here but still, you can see the resemblance.) Angel just wants to get away from said gang and live with a family that will not just dump her on the street. Tramp has pulled a complete 180 from the last movie, as he is now a father and as a result has settled down and is now less carefree. Lady gets too little of screen time to even mention. And there's Buster, the leader of the 'Junkyard Dogs' who hates the Tramp for abandoning the gang for Lady, and there is no greater person to voice him than Chazz Palimenteri. I don't know how they got him but I am sure glad that they did.
This, the music, the above average animation, and its good moral and strong theme of family make this good for a family movie night. If you can find it, then you should probably purchase it because even as a sequel to Lady and the Tramp, my favourite Disney movie, it holds up and is just downright enjoyable.
