It’s bad enough when Disney milks a Beauty and the Beast or Lion King for quickie straight-to-video sequels. But as a witless follow-up to the original noisy misfire, Gadget 2 seems especially dubious. Once more, with even less feeling, the cartoonish robo-cop (3rd Rock From the Sun alum Stewart, replacing Matthew Broderick) battles evildoers, using built-in gizmos that always pop up at the wrong time, with predictably goofy consequences. The film’s sheer busyness might mesmerize small children, but for anyone over 6, it’s as mind-numbing as it is numb-minded.
