In this direct-to-video sequel to Don Bluth's 1982 animated adventure The Secret of NIMH, Timmy (voice of Ralph Macchio) is the son of two courageous mice who helped save the day for the animals of Thorn Valley. While the wise Nicodemus has predicted that Timmy will some day be a great hero -- and his father expects nothing less -- the mouse is at once anxious to prove his courage and worried if he can live up to the expectations of others. Timmy's opportunity finally comes when his friend Jenny (Hynden Walch) asks him to help her find her parents, who may have been kidnapped by the nefarious human scientists of the National Institute of Mental Health. The voice cast for The Secret of NIMH II: Timmy to the Rescue includes Eric Idle, Harvey Korman, Doris Roberts, and William H. Macy. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
This is a movie where the sequel did not measure up to the original Secret of NIMH. The Original was dark, freaky, and the story quite compelling. This movie is what we get when we try to let film makers and parents guide our decisions into what movies we should see. This movie is about Timmy and how he moved away from his family and went to NIMH and Justin and Mr. Ages request to live off his father's destiny (That's literally what it looks like, no other explanation is given). But as Timmy grows he only wants to be a hero where Justin and Mr. Ages just wants him to learn and be cautious for his own good. One day another young girl mouse comes to NIMH and tells the rats of NIMH that their other families at NIMH survived and are being tortured there. The rats of NIMH think it is to dangerous to venture there only to get captured once again. So, what naturally happens is that Timmy and the young girl mouse venture to NIMH with a little help from old friend Jeremy(Where he and a catipillar are schemeing other forest creatures out of there food because they are pretending to be the great owl; who left the tree he was at years ago). One Timmy and the girl mouse get there they find out that NIMH plans to send in army to the rats of NIMH to destroy it. Can Timmy stop this henous plot? As you can see that is the overall plot to this film and yes, it is corny. There are things that our good about this movie like having Arthur Mallet, Dom DeLuise, William H. Macy, and Eric Idle involved. The story is pretty good too, until the corny ending and also it is hilarious to hear Ralph Macchio singing and acting as Timmy. Overall this film has it's moments but for true fans it leaves you wanting more. 5 out of 10 I give it.
Ugh. 1990, the time when the cartoon world went into 4kids mode. When I was a child I always preferred the first movie over this...poor excuse of a sequel, not like any of them are as good as the first movie. But this...ugh...full of corny lines, the characters are cheaply animated. The list goes on.
Disney should be ashamed! Secret 2 is perhaps one of the worst of their direct-to-video TV treatments ever, and a reason they should stop those if ever there was one. In the sequel, characters are mixed around. Adventure is badly done. The story is chipper and dumb at the same time.
Great Movie. I Love The Song ''Just Say Yes''. This Movie Does Have It's Scary Monents Like In The First Movie.
Though I Always Wish That Movie Sequels Would Be As Great As The First Movie.
This Movie Has Some Sprinkles Of The First Movie Here And There.
Overall, This Movie Is Great For Fans Of Animated Musicals (Like The ''American Tail'' Movies).
The Most Reason I Liked This Movie Is Because Timmy Was My Favorite Charecter In The First ''Secret Of NIMH'' Movie. And Having Him Being The Main Charecter In The Second Movie Is Like A Dream Come True.
I Also Love Seeing Timmy Having A Love Intrest In The Movie, That Was Cute.
