The movie spurred just the one sequel which was made and released around five years later. They Still Call Me Bruce (1987) was not successful commercially and went straight to video in a number of territories. See more »

"Bruce" (Johnny Yune) is a hapless cook who just happens to work for the main mafia boss on the west coast. But things aren't going good for the mob because of a series of drug busts by the feds. So the boss of the west coast named "Lil Pete" (Bill Capizzi) decides to use an unsuspecting Bruce to deliver his cocaine throughout the United States by fooling him into thinking that it is flour from China. Naturally, Bruce doesn't know any better. He also doesn't suspect that his new girlfriend, "Anita" (Pam Huntington) is a federal agent who has planted a bug on him to track his movements. Meanwhile, another mobster on the west coast named "Big Al" (Martin Azarow) is seeking to discredit Lil Pete and has his girlfriend, "Karmen" (Margaux Hemingway) follow Bruce to inhibit his deliveries. Anyway, rather than detail the entire plot I will just say that for a low-budget comedy this wasn't too bad. Johnny Yune was absolutely hilarious. Unfortunately, the action scenes and everything not centered on him fell completely flat. In addition, the middle portion of the film really seemed to drag. All in all then I rate this film as about average.
