Gadget is back on the job, on stakeout, but he is concerned that everything is too quiet in Riverton. He has a very simple, rational answer to this; " it's always the most quiet just before criminals strike". Evil must be afoot. In a moment of overzealous crime fighting Gadget arrests an elderly women for wreckless driving, but not without incident. In his effort to make the arrest Gadget's many crime fighting "accessories" go wildly astray. It's time to report back to headquarters for a checkup.

I really enjoyed this movie. I believe it had great acting (French Stewart was remarkably funny) and was alot more faithful to the TV series than the original IG. The best changes are to Dr. Claw. Fans of the TV series will recognize the similarities (not seeing his face, the ugly cat). The wacky fun is back in this Inspector Gadget, and i recommend it to anyone looking for a good, funny movie for their family.
