It's the 1980s, and it's the moment that Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne meet. The two individuals are seen by many as 'special', and become best friends as soon as they meet. Principal Collins and his lover, the lunch lady Ms. Heller, want to make as much money out of scams, and their next idea is to create a special needs class. Ms. Heller is the teacher, and they have assigned Harry and Lloyd to round the special students up. School News Reporter Jessica is suspicious though, and desperately tries to find out the truth, even if it means gaining Harry and Lloyd's help. Written by
The truck that pulls in front of Jessica as she is chasing the short school bus is hauling "Turbo Lax", the same laxative Lloyd gives Harry in the original movie. See more »
When Principal Collins is driving Jessica, the skyscrapers in his rear-view mirror are in Atlanta, Georgia (most notably the cylindrical Peachtree Plaza Hotel), not Providence, where the movie is set. See more »
What are you crazy boys doing in my tool shed?
We're not crazy, dad. We're special, and Principal Collins wants us to have our own special class room.
My boy's special! How about that!
I knew you were different!

It is tough living up to D&D I so you have to take this money for what it is, a brave attempt to relive the first one. Do they pull it off? Kind of. It is worth the money to go see this if you don't take yourself too seriously.
I think that the people that made this movie are having the last laugh, it will go over $30 million by the end of next week. For a movie, any movie, to bring in $30 million bucks on about a $15 million dollar budget is a coup. After this is all said and dumb with the DVD sales and the HBO licensing this movie will make a cool $50 million bucks profit, easily.
Stop taking yourselves too seriously, go watch a stupid movie and laugh your ass off. Hell, if we can sit through a funny movie, maybe we can all lighten up a little in these way too serious world.
