Storyline

Vada Sultenfuss has a holiday coming up, and an assignment: to do an essay on someone she admires and has never met. She decides she wants to do an assignment on her mother, but quickly realizes she knows very little about her. She manages to get her father to agree to let her go to LA to stay with her Uncle Phil and do some research on her mother. Once in LA, she finds herself under the protection of Nick, the son of Phil's girlfriend, who at first is very annoyed at losing his holidays to escort a hick *girl* around town. However, he soon becomes more involved in the difficult search. Written by Liz Jordan <c9310494@alinga.newcastle.edu.au>

Trivia

Producers attempted to get Macaulay Culkin to appear in a brief flashback sequence reprising his role briefly as Thomas J. Sennett from the first film. Culkin was too busy with other projects at the time, and his character is only briefly referenced in this film as a result. See more »

Goofs

A reference is made to one-child-per-family policy in China, which in reality was introduced in 1978 - four years after the time in which the movie takes place. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Vada Sultenfuss: [narration to audience] I remember before I was born, wounded up like a fur ball in the highly overrated fetal position, luckily I'm not claustrophobic, but on rainy days I still felt a tightness in my left shoulder. So now that my stepmother's pregnant, I understand what the baby's going through, and I'm not jealous at all, really, not at all.

disconnected from the original
19 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Vada Sultenfuss (Anna Chlumsky) is now 13. Her father Harry (Dan Aykroyd) and Shelly (Jamie Lee Curtis) are expecting a new baby. She's given a school assignment to write about someone who achieved something and who she's never met. She decides to write about her mother Maggie (Angeline Ball). For spring vacation, she goes to her mother's home town L.A. to stay with uncle Phil. She is assisted by the son of Phil's girlfriend, Nick Zsigmond.

The lost of Macaulay Culkin in the first movie is tough enough. This one sends Vada to L.A. and abandons the rest of the cast. I'm willing to have Vada in her teenage years but I don't understand why she can't stay in her small town. She is essentially disconnected with the first movie. There is almost no point in doing a sequel in this way. The middle of this movie is terribly flat and meandering. The Maggie reveal is very touching but the rest of this is forgettable.
