Trivia

When Joel is showing Wednesday and Pugsley his "Serial Killers and Schizos" cards, the two in his hand besides The Black Widow are James Earl Ray and Lizzie Borden. Christina Ricci (Wednesday) would go on to play Lizzie Borden in a 2014 made-for-TV biopic, Lizzie Borden Took An Axe, and short-lived 2015 spin-off TV series, The Lizzie Borden Chronicles, both on Lifetime.

Better than the original ? I think so.
6 May 1999 | by (Norwich, England) – See all my reviews

This film is one of those rare gems, a sequel that is as good as, or even better than the original.

Christina Ricci fulfills all the promise that she showed in the first film, as she really steals the film from her more established co-stars.

The scenes at camp produce some of the best one-liners, and it is great to see an American film that is self-mocking about its image concious rich societies. Lines from Ricci like " Is that your overbite?" and "When they woke up all their old noses had grown back!" are superb and will be much loved in the UK, as it is how much of the States is perceived over here.

Also, Amanda in this movie, is also played by the same girl who played the Girl Scout in the first movie.

Add a little bit of romance between Wednesday and another kid at the camp and you have something for everyone in this wonderfully funny and worryingly endearing movie.
