The critical thermodynamics of the two-dimensional N-vector cubic and MN models is studied within the field-theoretical renormalization group (RG) approach. The beta functions and critical exponents are calculated in the five-loop approximation and the RG series obtained are resummed using the Borel-Leroy transformation combined with the generalized Pade approximant and conformal mapping techniques. For the cubic model, the RG flows for various N are investigated. For N=2 it is found that the continuous line of fixed points running from the XY fixed point to the Ising one is well reproduced by the resummed RG series and an account for the five-loop terms makes the lines of zeros of both beta functions closer to each another. For the cubic model with Ngreater than or equal to3, the five-loop contributions are shown to shift the cubic fixed point, given by the four-loop approximation, towards the Ising fixed point. This confirms the idea that the existence of the cubic fixed point in two dimensions under N>2 is an artifact of the perturbative analysis. For the quenched dilute O(M) models (MN models with N=0) the results are compatible with a stable pure fixed point for Mgreater than or equal to1. For the MN model with M,Ngreater than or equal to2 all the nonperturbative results are reproduced. In addition a new stable fixed point is found for moderate values of M and N.
