When Johnny 5 is writing "GET BEN, U FIX" onto the wall, one can see, that these lines have been written there before. The lines have been erased, but can still be read when you look closely. See more »
Early UK versions were cut by 5 secs by the BBFC to remove a shot of man holding nunchakus, and to edit 2 uses of the word "fucking" for a PG certificate (though some debate remains as to whether the swearing may have been misheard by mistake). The nunchaku shot was restored for the 2002 DVD release though the swearing remained cut. See more »
Jonny Five's back... is this a good thing? Actually, yes. The good news is that Fisher Stevens' character, Ben Jahrvi, is the star of this movie and has a lot more attention. In the first movie, he was overshadowed by Steve Guttenberg. Also, the music score is cool too. The bad news is that this movie could have been better. Jonny Five talks more like a human now but that is not necessarily a bad thing. If you've never seen Short Circuit or Short Circuit 2 then please watch you may like it. If you've seen Short Circuit and despised it, then don't watch this.
