Storyline

Junior's back in his first adventure since his last! Junior and Ben move to Mortville which seems like the perfect town to live in. The Healys have a nice new house--and Junior get's a cool new room! And young women have formed a line at Ben's door in order to get a piece of him (romantically). Ben does feel he should get remarried so Junior can have a mom, so while Junior adjusts to his new school which includes a little girl who's as bratty as Junior and a teenage brain-dead ignoramous bully in Junior's sixth grade class, Ben finds some dates, which Junior sends running for the hills, in the meantime Junior pulls his infamous tricks on people: blowing up barbecues, taping the bully to the chalkboard, videotaping his babysitter and her boyfriend having sex and broadcasting it for the whole neighborhood to see, same old same old. Meanwhile, Ben meets the gorgeous school nurse (after the school's satellite dish get's pushed on his head) and they, well he, believes it's love at first ...

Trivia

In the first classroom scene, Mr. Thorn is writing rules on the blackboard, and at the bottom it says, "No Slackers." Mr. Thorn is played by James Tolkan, who played Mr. Strickland in the "Back to the Future" series, and was fond of calling both Marty and his father slackers. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where the Crazy Dance is suppose to be going fast, it is obvious that the clip is simply sped up. You can tell by watching the paces of the people in the background. See more »

one line summary
18 March 2003 | by (australia) – See all my reviews

I think there's a deeper level of comedy in this movie than the simple dumb jokes and pranks. Things like Junior's deadpan delivery of "these people are dicks" after meeting his new neighbours, his facial expressions and fist clenching whenever someone p***es him off, and his deadpan fake laughter when he gets his revenge. You never really know whether these kind of things are meant to convey the kid's evilness and be taken seriously within the context of the movie, or are just supposed to be completely ridiculous, which just makes them all the more hilarious, moreso than the more obvious actual jokes.
