IG 2 was marginally better than the first one. They at LEAST remembered that Dr. Claw is unseen and has a gravelly voice. And they DID reference villains from the cartoon. French Stewart at least managed to make Gadget look somewhat egotistical and incompetent, but VERY whiny. But then again, the first movie was completely ignorant to all the reasons that made Inspector Gadget a great cartoon. Couldn't even get the *&^% town name right.
