The character of Stephanie Speck from the first movie, played by Ally Sheedy, has a short audio role but on a cassette tape, and she makes a quick reference to Newton Crosby. Another heavy reference is made about Ben Jahrvi and Newton's working relationship and background during Fred Ritter's attempted sale of Johnny 5 to a corporation. See more »
When Johnny 5 is writing "GET BEN, U FIX" onto the wall, one can see, that these lines have been written there before. The lines have been erased, but can still be read when you look closely. See more »
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...
