Having survived their last adventure in the wilderness, these talking pets (two dogs, one cat) get themselves lost again, this time in the big city. It proves not to be the best place to rework the Incredible Journey formula, since strays and bumbling dognappers just aren’t as thrilling as mountain lions and raging rivers. Still, taken on the level of a live-action cartoon, Homeward Bound II: Lost in San Francisco should be diverting for anyone under 10. Parents, however, may have to fight the urge to hit the mute button during those stretches when the animals’ juvenile jokes get too juvenile. How low do they go? Well, ”Cats rule, dogs drool” is the epitome of wit here, and that line’s recycled from the first Homeward Bound. Woof! C+
