In order for the film to appeal to families, some dialog editing was performed to remove some swear words. For example, when Fred says "back to the wall," his mouth clearly says "balls." Also, when Fred says "He just ran out, he went ape on me," his mouth is saying, "He went ape shit on me." The film still contains similar words, but they are spoken in a humorous context or by the villains, not the protagonists. 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...
