| A surprisingly good sequel.
Lacking the beauty, charm and teamwork of the original film (the remake) this sequel makes up in adventure and romance! This one is probably slightly funnier, with another good adventure and almost as much proof as the last one that dogs really are man's best friend.

However, this sequel has its flaws, as in things about the film that don't completely make sense if you have watched the first film. For example, in the first film Chance learnt how to be a faithful and kind dog to Jamie, but in this it seem's he's even sillier. Another one of these flaws is that he explains in the first film that he lived on the streets and now Shadow is talking about how he can't live on the streets and he doesn't know how to. WHAT!?

Otherwise, an incredibly good sequel, with romance, adventure and charm, but just doesn't have the emotion that made the original film so special and captivating.

Chance's, Sassy's and Shadow's owners are going on a camping trip and taking the dogs with them. However, Chance, like in the last film, becomes incredibly confused with the situation and escapes out of his dog box before all three of them are loaded onto the plane. That means they are lost in San Francisco, while the humans go off without them! What can they do?

Recommended to people who liked the first film, people who were disappointed that there was no romance in the first film and just people who like dogs!

Enjoy "Homeward Bound II: Lost in San Francisco"!

Trivia

When Sassy spies the little boy Tucker on the stoop of his house holding his tiny kitten tiger. Sassy is confident that she can charm the boy into giving her some food. Chance again gets rambunctious and decides to chime into the action. The boy sees the bulldog running up to the house and calls for his mom who comes to the door and shoos the strangers away as she ushers her son inside. For this scene, four kittens were used from the local S.P.C.A., cared for by the humane representative during filming and later adopted by individual crew members. Later, Sassy and Shadow return to this same neighborhood and find that this little boy's house is on fire. Shadow daringly enters the burning building and rescues the little boy, while Sassy follows behind to rescue the kitten. This fire sequence was shot in cuts and two dogs and two cats were used in rotation during the filming. A special frame was built with safety firebars and stage smoke dispensed on the ground to create the fire atmosphere. The animals were removed from the area for the shots of the house seen burning at a distance. When you see the dog walking in the area of the fire, the flames and smoke were controlled. For added protection, his fur was covered with a fire retardant. The cat walked near the smoke, but never near the flames. For added protection, her fur was wetted down with water. Sassy is seen carrying the kitten in her mouth as she exits the building. This was a stuffed animal which the cat had been trained to carry in her mouth. The fake animal also had a small cloth tag attached to the back of it that had been coated with food, making it even more attractive to Sassy.


Quotes

Shadow: Sassy, do you hear a truck?
Sassy: No, Shadow. I see a truck!


Goofs

Chance is obviously played by a different dog in this film than the first one. Most noticeable is the dog has more tan spots on his neck and shoulders.
