Did You Know?

Carrie Fisher was an uncredited script doctor on the film.See more »
Errors in geography: When Vada's plane leaves for California you see her flying over a coast, with the land on the right side of the plane. There are no major bodies of water between Pennsylvania and Southern California. Lake Erie is the closest major body of water that the plane would fly near, however, since Lake Erie is north of Pennsylvanaia the coast would be to the left of the plane as it flew west.See more »

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.

Good but not great, 23 March 2000
Author: Monika-5 from United States

No, MG2 isn't as good as the first movie, but how often are sequels better than the first? (I will make a case for Toy Story 2.) Anyway, the acting is strong (especially Anna Chlumsky, who is wonderful again as Vada), the plot of Vada researching her mother's life is very interesting, but the subplots are a little pedestrian and cliched. I read a review that claimed Dan Aykroyd and Jamie Lee Curtis were "sleepwalking" in their roles, but in all fairness, they didn't really have much to do in this movie. The fabulous Christine Ebersole steals several scenes, and Austin O'Brien does a good job here as well. It may not be the greatest film ever, but you could certainly do worse!
