Similar to Its Immediate Predecessor and Equally Dull
This film begins in France with a so-called "foreign exchange prisoner" by the name of "Professor Mortimer Gangreen" (Bill Astin) being taken from his cell to meet with "Le Warden" (Bill LaFleur). However, once the guards take him to the warden's office, they are shocked to hear him order his immediate release. It's then that they realize that a killer tomato has disguised himself as the warden and that this meeting was only a pretext to allow Professor Gangreen's escape in a hot-air balloon. The scene then shifts to the French countryside with a young American man by the name of "Michael" (Marc Price) wandering along a rural back road on his quest to see Europe. Hearing a noise above him, he looks up only to be knocked unconscious by a bag of sand from a hot air balloon containing three killer tomatoes, a man named "Igor" (Steven Lundquist) and none other than the notorious Professor Gangreen. Not long afterward, he is awoken by a beautiful French maiden named "Marie" (Angela Visser) and is immediately attracted to her. To his delight, she is equally attracted to him. What neither of them realize, however, is that both of them are soon to play a pivotal role combatting a rebellion which could have disastrous consequences for--not just France--but the entire world! Now, rather than reveal any more, I will just say that this film turned out to be much like its immediate predecessor in that, for a comedy, it really wasn't that funny. At least, not to me. To be sure, some of the one-liners and cultural stereotypes may have merited a chuckle or two, but that was about it. Likewise, have a gorgeous actress like Angela Visser) certainly didn't hurt either. But it simply wasn't enough for me to rate this rather dull film any higher than I have. Below average.
