Trivia

Julia Montgomery refused to reprise her role as Betty because in the original script Betty is caught cheating on Lewis. Montgomery felt it betrayed the change in her character from the first film. Joe Roth offered to have the scene re-written but Montgomery still refused. She eventually returned for the following sequels. Lewis is shown packing a picture of Betty in the beginning of the film implying they are still together. Ironically, this means that Lewis cheated on Betty with Sunny. See more »

Quotes

Arnold Poindexter: So what you're saying essentially is, is that along with infinite space which extends beyond perpetual bigness there's also infinite smallness?
Harold Wormser: [nods head in agreement]
Arnold Poindexter: How?
Harold Wormser: Easy. Take an asymptotic line and extend it outward.
Arnold Poindexter: Oh.
Stewart: Right, right, right. So perpetual bigness exists simultaneously with perpetual smallness. What was I thinking?
Ogre: What if uh C-A-T really spelled dog?
Arnold Poindexter: Wow.
Harold Wormser: God.
Stewart: Yeah.

Incoherent
16 July 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was a disappointment compared to the original. Why is it that sequels often try to do similar things, similar plots, similar jokes? Not necessary! A sequel to me must be original to some degree, too. The beginning was promising, the middle part had enormous lengths and very bad scripting and the end was bland. I loved the characters though. Believable like the original. However, Poindexter seemed much too talkative and sometimes even made sense, almost as if Milton Waddams went to a speech-therapist. I did not like the setting at all and the hotel scenes were very far fetched.

All in all rather disappointing. Too bad.
