In a 1999 interview with The A.V. Club, Harold Ramis said of this sequel: "with Caddyshack II (1988), the studio begged me. They said, "Hey, we've got a great idea: 'The Shack is Back!'" And I said "No, I don't think so." But they said that Rodney [Dangerfield] really wanted to do it, and we could build it around Rodney. Rodney said, "Come on, do it." Then the classic argument came up which says that if you don't do it, someone will, and it will be really bad. So I worked on a script with my partner Pj Torokvei, consulting with Rodney all the time. Then Rodney got into a fight with the studio and backed out. We had some success with Back to School (1986), which I produced and wrote, and we were working with the same director, Alan Metter. When Rodney pulled out, I pulled out, and then they fired Alan and got someone else [Allan Arkush]. I got a call from [co-producer] Jon Peters saying, "Come with us to New York; we're going to see Jackie Mason!". I said, "Ooh, don't do this. Why don't we let it die?" And he said, "No, it'll be great." But I didn't go, and they got other writers to finish it. I tried to take my name off that one, but they said if I took my name off, it would come out in the trades and I would hurt the film". See more »

[Chandler Young has gotten Hartounian Construction's power turned off]
That's hard to say, huh? Well, when can we get the power turned back on? That's hard to say, huh? Well, tell me something. Is it as hard to say as "Oh, my god! Somebody help me! There's a man in my office with a *flamethrower*"?

At the start of the movie, Bugs Bunny interrupts and tells the audience to wish him a happy 50th birthday. A very brief animated celebration occurs before the movie starts up again. See more »
This movie has serious problems if it is not going to have Bill Murray, I could have said that long before this movie was released. The movie was even going to be worse if Chevy Chase is going to be in the movie, but only for five minutes. But this movie should have never been made without Rodney Dangerfield. This movie is almost nothing like the first one. The first one a was dirty, raunchy, rapid-fire comedy that was hilarious. This movie is a silly PG film. The two almost don't have any connection. The first one oddly enough had real characters, you could identify somewhat with the characters, whether it was frustrated Danny (who also is not in this one) or obnoxious Judge Smails. You may not have like Judge Smails, but you REALLY didn't like him. The characters here are all cardboard and inoffensive.
The edge in the first one is completely lost here. Despite that there manages to be a few funny moments. The movie really never catches fire, despite the cast that includes Jackie Mason (who attempts to be the lead) Robert Stack, Marsha Warfield, Dan Aykroyd, Dyan Cannon, and a few others. Overall do not watch this film. The movie overall is predictable, and at the end the film is a complete departure from the first one. I do not know why they even attempted to do this film without members of the first cast. Although Ted Knight is dead that something still could have been done to improve the script, with the other three comedians, and maybe Michael O'Keefe. If you saw the first one, which is hilarious, don't bother with this one, it's not worth your time.
