      Laura Fries Variety USA Network should reap big returns with this sequel to the 1989 theatrical release Prancer, a live-action heartwarmer. Oct 24, 2018 Full Review Kat Halstead Common Sense Media While the central family still have their problems, Prancer Returns has fun and humor, with likable actors adding warmth to the rehashed story. Rated: 3/5 Jan 18, 2023 Full Review Scott Weinberg Apollo Guide If the "classic" holiday movies have all been played to death and you're still pining for more, then you could do a lot worse than giving Prancer Returns a spin. Rated: 60/100 Jan 2, 2002 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member The original Prancer film is far better. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie tries too hard to be the original. Had I not seen the original so many times and not loved it so much I might like this movie more. But I've always said that sequels only work when they have all or at least some of the original cast. This has neither but it tries to follow the same storyline. I do like John Corbett who had a big role in "Prancer Returns", but this movie was a little more mean-spirited than the original. Supposedly for the past ten years they've had a Prancer ceremony in honor of Jessica Riggs, the main character from "Prancer". But there is barely any mention of her except in passing. But overall, the movie is cute, but it's not anywhere near as magical as the first. However, as a first viewing it's worth watching. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Prancer Returns, Is A Fast Moving Family Drama, But Drops A Bit Regarding Plot As It's Basically The Same Plot. Aside From The Same Plot, The Script & Acting Talent Isn't That Great. The Only Real Talent Is Jack Palance, And His Role Is Sadly Short And Not That Great. This Is An Average Film & There Are Worse Christmas Sequels Out There Which Copy The Original. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Crap, they boy was annoying and the fall would have left him paralyzed. Just more crap that is pushed out around December. It's rare when a Christmas movie isn't crappy, but this one is not that occasion. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member one of my favorite Christmas Movies Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Its ok. ten years later, it doesn't seem to capture the first one's innocence as well, and the romance of the mother seems kinda out of place. but has a sweet ending at least!
