I loved The Fox And The Hound as kid, though I admit the first half was more appealing and less sad than second half but it was poignant and bittersweet. Fox and Hound is a sombre, subtle movie about friends being torn apart because of the roles that society puts on them. The Fox and the Hound 2 does not understand that and tells a midquel story that stupid and annoying.
The Plots is Copper, the hound, joins a band of singing dogs. Tod, the fox, gets jealous that Copper has no time for him anymore. Dixie, the dog that Copper replaced because she has diva-like tendencies get jealous. In the end Copper and Todd reunite the band and continue their friendship only to have the original movie story-line pull them apart in like an week or so.
A Puppy and a Fox Kit could not distract me from this movie. There was too much in this to torture me. First, not a fan of country music, so a whole movie pretty much devoted to that is off putting. Second, the lack of understanding the source material to make a cutesy movie makes me wretch. Third, the puns and lame jokes, those were torture. Fourth, the story is just painful and there are no stakes. Oh no their friendship might end because of the band even though they won’t say friends later. This movie just reeks of lameness. It just seems like the filmmaker forgot that aspect of the original. But as a stand along entity since there are not stakes it’s lame still.
I really hated The Fox and the Hound 2 from pretty much start to finish. It took a heartbreakingly poignant story with cute baby animals and made it a vapid annoying movie devoid any hint of depth or for that matter interest or entertainment.
It’s so sad because Copper and Tod are adorable creatures, I feel a shade bad hating on them.Follow thehunchblog
