Goofs

(at around 38 mins) When Lee's appearance is turned from being a 'Nothing-Face' into the Playboy centerfold model, a staple, although oversized, also materializes on Lee since it was visible when the picture of the centerfold was looked at, but when Lee's appearance changes from that of the model into the Hungry Heifer Manager (at around 50 mins), glasses do not materialize on Lee's face, even though the restaurant manager was wearing glasses at that time.

the critters are back for the main course
31 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

Critters 2: The Main Course was made in 1988, this one had alot of critters in it. so the end for the critters aren't over yet as we all wait for the 3rd and 4th to comewhich came out in 1991. I did enjoy this movie as part of it was like a cowboy style. I give this movie 10 out of 10.
