The 3rd "Short Circuit" film never happened due to the film getting mixed reviews and was a box-office disappointment. If a "Short Circuit 3" had came about, the 2nd sequel could either follow Captain Skroeder (G.W. Bailey), whom had been fired from NOVA at the end of the 1st film, for disobeying orders and destroying Johnny 5, only to learn Johnny 5 was not destroyed and is now a celebrity and an American citizen and sets out to destroy him or it would had followed Johnny 5 as he is abducted by the American government and used to fight in a war and Stephanie (Ally Sheedy) and Ben (Fisher Stevens) set out to rescue him.

I have just finished re-watching this pillar of my youth, and was reminded of what a family classic this really is! The sequel to Short Circuit is an improvement on the first film, if only for the inclusion of the then beautiful Cynthia Gibb as Sandy Banatoni (whom I had a HUGE crush on when I first saw the film at the age of around 8). But there are hundreds more memorable moments from the film which came flooding back to me as I watched, much to the annoyance of my housemates.
Great film, maybe not in a 'Pulp Fiction/Donnie Darko' sort of way, but great in a 'Bill & Ted/Flight of the Navigator' way, that it's a testament of my youth and will be shown to my kids when I eventually have some!
p.s. anyone notice a small similarity between Cynthia Gibb in this film and young Potter star Emma Watson? Weird...
