Trivia

This is the only Flodder story which clearly seems to follow the continuity of an earlier story, while the third movie and the episodes of the TV show don't seem to show any kind of continuity at all. At the start of this movie, the Flodder villa is still in ruins after it was destroyed by a tank in the first movie. Also, grandpa Flodder is still absent after he was implied to be killed by a train in the first movie (which was ignored in all later Flodder productions). The only thing missing is Johnny's fiancee Yolanda, implying that the relationship failed anyway. See more »

The portrayal of the characters were still too vulgar, though an improvement on the first movie.
