Storyline

Debo has escaped from prison and is looking to get revenge on Craig. So Craig's dad takes him to Rancho Cucamonga to hide out with his Uncle Elroy and cousin Day-Day, who moved to the suburbs after winning the lottery. But once he gets there, Craig and Day-Day have a set of suburban misadventures that make his South Central experiences look tame. Written by <jgp3553@excite.com>

Alternate Versions

The DVD edition uses stills from a cut scene from the film (of Stanley and an unnamed woman, meeting at Rancho Cucamonga with a relator, who was credited for appearing in the movie, despite not being in the final cut) during its menus. Yet, this scene is not included on the disc in any form other than those still pictures. See more »

User Reviews

Close, but not quite there.
5 June 2000 | by Banky-4See all my reviews

You have to give Ice Cube credit. He tried to make a good sequel, but somehow it didn't quite work. It was close though, and fairly funny.

At one point, in narration, Craig says, "I sure miss Smokey."

We do too.
