Here is the movie that gave us the Chucky face stapled, sown and hair all done weirdly.
Here is where Jennifer Tilly entered the franchise and the intro of the Tiffany doll. Here is where the power of the amulet was said to be needed to transfer souls to human bodies, a continuity flaw which is present in the moves before this and the three movies that followed this.

That aside, this movie was sometimes fun and other times not. It took it forty minutes to get into its strides and when it did the movie just played it safe. You get to see some mad killings by Tiffany and the movie stayed easy, making the killings go along with something you can see happen. Which I very much liked. Than the idea of the two movies [Child’s Play 2 (1990) and Child’s Play 3 (1991)] before this.

The CGI is not spectacular and the plot is just not so well sown up to be picture perfect. This movie and Seed of Chucky (2004), had nothing to do with Andy. Andy was the main human character in the first three movies and the last two movies before the reboot. This is the fourth installment in the Child's Play franchise.

The movie plot starts with us meeting Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly) as she goes saving Chucky’s mashed remains from a police officer. She then takes those remains patches it up to make a doll back.
We get to see the trailer where she stays and we see that she has a doll obsession. She does the needed incantations and bring Chucky back to life to get a surprise when she finds out his intent for their relationship was not as she hoped. In anger she puts him in a playpen and locked him there with a female doll. He gets out and kills her and transfer her soul into the female doll she gave him.

Now together he tells her that she needs him, so they can find his amulet and transfer their souls back into living bodies.
They decided to get Tiffany’s friend to help, by telling him to transfer the dolls to the burial site of Chucky’s human body as the amulet was on his neck when he was buried.

They kidnapped the young man and his girlfriend. Who were actually trying to get away from the girl’s overbearing father.
On their journey to the burial site, Chucky and Tiffany killed many people on the way, making the police go after the travelling van because they believed that the boy and girl were the ones going about killing people.

The movie was easy, no complexity and you can get by enjoying what it has to bring to the franchise. Other than that, the movie is just average. The film was followed by Seed of Chucky (2004), Curse of Chucky (2013) and Cult of Chucky (2017).
