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.

Near the beginning of the movie, when Vada and Harry go bowling and Vada rolls her strike, just as the ball touches one of the pins, you can see that all of the pins were yanked backwards as if strings were attached to each of the pins. See more

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
