The Bands plumb truly execrable depths with Prehysteria! 2. It falls into a certain line of thinking that regards a childrens film as an excuse for puerility and bad comedy. The film is dominated by ludicrously broad comic acting a Japanese cook who does bad karaoke; water hijinks with the bumbling gardener; two idiotic exterminators with a penchant for military maneuvers; and a crabbily autocratic housekeeper.
All the faults of the first film fail to be compensated for but are instead taken to an extreme. The dinosaurs are even stiffer than the first time around this time they are hardly even animated and in some scenes are obviously just being rocked back and forth on wires. Worse they are made to behave in ways that are not believable ones tail acts as an instant lockpick; and since the previous film they have somehow gained intelligence and can do such exploits as paint the railway set with brushes attached to their tails and knock over marbles to trip the villains up on cue. Even worse, like the first film, they have no real purpose and are almost completely extraneous to the action they could have been written out of the story without any difference. How more puerile can a clone of Jurassic Park be reduced to than a climax that does not actually involve the dinosaurs doing anything but where the triumph is instead dependent on the young heros business tycoon father throwing away his cellphone and learning to play with model trains again?
There was a subsequent marginally better sequel Prehysteria! 3 (1995).
