Trivia

At one point Jobe uses the phrase "The game is afoot." This line is usually attributed to Sherlock Holmes. Matt Frewer has portrayed the famous detective in TV series The Case of the Whitechapel Vampire (2002). See more »

Goofs

At the end of the first movie, Jobe's body was hideously stretched by his complete transfer into VR space, and there is no way he could have survived in this movie. See more »

Quotes

Jobe: Tell me what "Egypt" means, Doctor, before I get really FUCKING PISSED OFF!

Crazy Credits

The last two minutes of the five-minute credits are completely silent (laserdisc and DVD at least). Whether there was originally any music there is not clear. See more »

Is this the end of the world? No, its Lawnmower Man 2!
23 June 2000 | by Sonatine97See all my reviews

Oh, God, this film is bad, oh so bad. I think I must have had too many beers in the pub prior to renting this pile of pants!

I do remember looking at the clock on the video and noticed 15 minutes of the film had passed. I don't remember the first 14 minutes, and by the time we got to 20, I realised I had better things to do, like inspect the innards of the toilet or cleanout the attic with a toothbrush & tweezers.

Its true when they say getting slightly drunk has an inverse affect on a person's ability to sort the wheat from the chaff. I must have had my drinks severely spiked to end up with something like this. But another good thing about alcohol, it makes you sleepy, and the following morning you tend to forget all those minor indescretions from the night before.

I like the original Lawnmower Man, and even though most sequels generally suck, this just gets blown away. I just don't have it in me to comment on the acting, directing etc, since they are all tended to blur into each other to form one big blob of Hmmm!

Not a good film, although if you have irritating guests in your home that you simply can't get rid of, put this on and I guarantee their coats will be on and the car keys ajingling before the opening credits finish!

Bad!
