Vada Sultenfuss has a holiday coming up, and an assignment: to do an essay on someone she admires and has never met. She decides she wants to do an assignment on her mother, but quickly realizes she knows very little about her. She manages to get her father to agree to let her go to LA to stay with her Uncle Phil and do some research on her mother. Once in LA, she finds herself under the protection of Nick, the son of Phil's girlfriend, who at first is very annoyed at losing his holidays to escort a hick *girl* around town. However, he soon becomes more involved in the difficult search.Written by

I remember before I was born, wounded up like a fur ball in the highly overrated fetal position, luckily I'm not claustrophobic, but on rainy days I still felt a tightness in my left shoulder. So now that my stepmother's pregnant, I understand what the baby's going through, and I'm not jealous at all, really, not at all.

The booklet contained in the "My Girl 2" soundtrack features photos of two scenes not in the Theatrical Cut. They include a scene in which Vada and Nick eat Hot Dogs at a park and the other includes a scene in which we actually get to see Vada get her ear peirced instead of just hearing about. See more »
I love My Girl, it is very charming and poignant, and as far as sequels go, My Girl 2 is good but not great. It is disappointing compared to My Girl, but it was decent and could have been a lot worse. The script does fall into cheese occasionally, the story is predictable, some of the direction lacks tightness and the pace is dull in the middle.
However, My Girl 2 is beautiful to watch with lovely scenery and pleasant photography, and the soundtrack is pleasant on the ears. The acting also helps, Anna Chlumsky broke my heart in My Girl and she is just as charming and poignant. Austin O'Brien shows an able chemistry with her, and Jamie Lee Curtis and Dan Aykroyd are also solid. The film also has an atmosphere that keeps true to My Girl, making some scenes that strived to be heart-breaking genuinely so.
Overall, it wasn't a great movie like the first My Girl but I liked it for the performances. 6/10 Bethany Cox
