This direct-to-video sequel to Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame finds Quasi (voiced once again by Tom Hulce) falling in love with a magician's assistant while attempting to foil that same magician's plan to steal his bells. Previous cast members return (Kevin Kline, Demi Moore, Jason Alexander), while two new characters feature the vocal talents of Haley Joel Osment and Jennifer Love Hewitt. The DVD offers a widescreen transfer that produces an image with an aspect ratio of 1.66:1. English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1. Supplemental materials include a making-of featurette hosted by Jennifer Love Hewitt. Those with access to a DVD-ROM drive can play interactive games. This disc faithfully upholds the standards parents have come to expect from Disney.

Hark at previous guest: "Victor" he says, like he knew Hugo or what the author's reactions would be. Many authors are surprisingly cool about loose adaptations of their work; Mary Shelley and L. Frank Baum in particular were huge fans of the earliest stage adaptations of "Frankenstein" and "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz," for instance.
"Hunch Deux" is delightful, mainly due to the presence (alas, merely vocal) of the darling Jennifer Love Hewitt, whose self-penned song "I'm Gonna Love You" is just one of the great tunes in this movie.

As it says, it's a very kid-friendly movie. It's got its family values worked in- as any Disney 'masterpeiece' (using the term loosely) should. For what it is, it's pretty good on the entertainment side... but still... Ok. Now, Victor Hugo wouldn't be very pleased with this. Check it out: The original was supposed to be a tragedy anyway- so, after Disney milked a crapload of money after ruining a classic, they make a -SEQUEL-. Ok... why V. Hugo never made a sequel: Because everybody was dead after teaching the reader a lesson in morality. Ok... granted disney is a grand preacher of morality towards children... but... couldn't they find a different story to abuse? There are so many good stories in history that -aren't- tragedies that could be fitted to this purpose... why did they have to pick on poor Quasimodo? (Which, by the way, does -NOT- mean 'half formed.' You may kick Clopin for that). All in all, I guess the movie was ok- but I still have my grudge against the movie for ruining a perfect Victor Hugo masterpiece.
Few will argue with the contention that RKO Radio's 1939 adaptation of Victor Hugo's The
Hunchback of Notre Dame was the best of the many screen versions of the Hugo classic. We say this even allowing for certain liberties taken ...
