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 »
This brings back memories from my childhood. I used to watch this movie when I was a little kid and I loved it. Johnny 5 is so kool and Ben is funny. This is a great movie for the family , especially for kids. Probably the best family movie out there and probably better than the first Short Circuit.
