Goofs

When Mr. Ages tells Timmy that the valley is safe and remains unknown to the world, how can Thorn Valley be safe from being found when it's obvious that the city built above ground can be clearly seen by anyone from the sky. Also why didn't the mice build their city underground or camouflage their buildings with grass roofs, or have their homes built in trees, any human would've found their city by flying over in an airplane or helicopter and they would've been in big trouble with humans.

Gah! Make it stop!
8 March 2002 | by fungusbrainsSee all my reviews

Avoid this movie - especially if you liked its predecessor. It's just simply terrible. The two movies have so little in common that it's just sickening. In fact, I don't even want to write any more about it. Suffice it to say that you should not watch this movie. It's not worth the depression it brings when you think about how much you'd expect from a sequel to such a great movie.
