Benny? You're leaving me with my back to the wall here. I mean, we gotta come up with something!

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 »
In Short Curcit 2, Johnny Five is back, this time to help his old friend and creator, Ben Javari, get his new toy business off the ground. Right amay, he gets into trouble and lots of it. First, he gets arrested helping a band of thieves. Second, Ben's partner, street-smart ex-watch salesman Fred Ritter, who owes the mob a considerable amount of money and has only thirty days to pay it off before a contract goes on his head, tries to sell Johnny as a means of getting the needed capital. And finally, greedy banker Oscar Baldwin, who is trying to steal a valuable collection of rare jewels, tries to use Johnny to get them. When Johnny finds out he has been betrayed, Oscar's goons smash him to near death. With a leaky battery and just over an hour before his memory fails killing him completely, can Johnny capture them and recover the jewels before then? Give it a rent or a buy and find out.
