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

When Vada's plane lands as the end of the movie the hill behind the airport with all the houses on it does not look like anything that would be found in Pennsylvania but looks quite similar to southern California. See more »
[narration to audience]
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 »

Not as bad as you might think
I'm not a big fan of any of the actors in this movie, particularly Austin O'Brien (Last Action Hero), and I didn't really like the original My Girl, but I have to say that this movie was better than expected. Something just touched me about Vada (Anna Chlumsky) trying to find out about the mother she never knew; it was honest and poignant. Singer/songwriter J.D. Souther does a nice turn as an old boyfriend of the mother. It's no masterpiece, to be sure, and is indeed slow and pointless in parts, but it's a pleasant diversion. I give it a (generous) 7.
