    Absolutely. Glad to hear the love for the first movie here on the board. On most boards I see everyone saying the second movie is better, and I didn't really like it. The first movie is grounded in a sort of reality. People really get hurt. The Gremlins are actually scary, although when they get their own scenes they are also funny. The second movie is too cartoonish, with its fourth-wall breaking and bringing back the Futtermans, it's just slapstick comedy. It's like how Beverly Hills Cop 3 turned an action series into a dumb comedy.


You're absolutely correct that first one manages to be a horror movie that is funny too. The second one, while entertaining, is a parody movie.
