Kate's reaction to the revelation of Gizmo's reappearance...


Did anyone else not buy this?

"That furry thing?"

This is not necessarily the fault of Phoebe Cates. I blame it on the scripting.

Kate's reaction to Gizmo just didn't seem authentic. He's not "That furry thing." He saved your boyfriend's life as well as your home town's from annihilation.

This is slightly nitpicking.

I also always had trouble grasping the fact that she doesn't even recognize him and mistakes the wired mogwai for Gizmo. Granted, the film doesn't take itself as seriously as the first, but for die hards, this had to be stretching it a bit.

Yeah, but this film totally makes fun of the original so you can't really apply normal "sequel rules".

Well, she remembers what happened the last time and thought, "Oh, no, don't tell me we are going to have those gremlin problems again."

The only time she got a close look at him was after they had defeated the GREMLINS. And that didn't last long until the chinese man took him. But I agree with you on her words. I'm sure BILLY must've told her several times how nice he was.

Yeah. I was a bit thrown by her reaction, too. Going by the fact that she helped take care of him at the end of the first movie, when he had a cold, I don't buy the idea that she had any kind of ill feelings toward little Giz. I also don't buy her not realizing that she brought the wrong Mogwai home.

Your opinion of me doesn't define who I am.
