Life-Size 2 is a 2018 American television film, which serves as a sequel to the Disney Channel original movie Life-Size from 2000. The film is directed by Steven K. Tsuchida, and stars Tyra Banks, who reprises her role as the doll-come-to-life Eve, alongside Francia Raisa and Gavin Stenhouse. In the movie, Grace Manning (Francia Raisa) is the CEO of Marathon Toys, a toy company that her mother had founded. Grace had been struggling as CEO since her mother's death, and the company is in danger of going bankrupt. When Grace accidentally brings Eve to life again, she sees it as an opportunity to bring more business to Marathon Toys, and decides to partner with Eve in a new toy line. What follows is a story of self-discovery for Grace, as she learns to let go of her obsession with work and start enjoying life.

The chemistry between the three leads is one of the primary reasons why this movie works so well. Tyra Banks brings her signature humor and charm to the role of Eve, while Francia Raisa gives a nuanced performance as Grace Manning. Gavin Stenhouse also shines as Grace's love interest, a charming British toy designer named Calum.

The film's themes center around friendship, self-discovery, and learning to balance work and personal life. Grace's journey to finding herself is relatable and heartwarming, and Eve serves as the hilariously wacky yet wise mentor to Grace throughout the film. The story is also very much about the importance of female empowerment, as Grace fights to prove herself in a male-dominated industry and Eve encourages her to be confident in herself and her abilities.

One of the biggest strengths of the movie is the way it balances humor and heart. The movie is filled with laugh-out-loud moments, particularly when it comes to Eve's antics as a life-size doll who is now adjusting to the modern world. However, the movie never loses sight of the emotional core of the story, and there are several powerful moments that will leave audiences feeling inspired.

The film's production design is also worthy of praise. The toy factory and Eve's magical world are both colorful and enchanting, and the costumes are both whimsical and stylish. The soundtrack features upbeat and catchy pop songs that add to the film's overall sense of fun.

Overall, Life-Size 2 is a delightful and heartwarming film that is sure to leave audiences feeling uplifted. The film is filled with humor, heart, and a great message, and the chemistry between the three leads is fantastic. Whether you're a fan of the original Life-Size film or you're just looking for a charming feel-good movie, Life-Size 2 is definitely worth a watch.

Life-Size 2 is a 2018 kids & family movie. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.6.
