  • An enjoyably silly and self-aware sequel, Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway should leave fans of the original feeling fairly hoppy.

    It's the human stars ... who truly shine. Domhnall Gleeson finds fun new ways to fall over. Rose Byrne delivers knowing lines.

    Can Will Gluck recapture this lightning in a bottle with Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway? No. But he sure does try.

    Unfortunately, ['Peter Rabbit 2'] is nowhere near as grounded [as its predecessor], often steering more toward cartoon antics and less original comedy. However, the continuation still provides wholesome entertainment for the family.

    A triumph of his particular artistic process. Rather than creating a script, casting to type, and rehearsing as an ensemble, the heady British director eschewed such commonalities... Unconventional it might be, but there's no arguing the results.
