Miss Red is being blackmailed. When she asks Sherlock Holmes for help, he connects her case to a series of jewel thefts and tells his assistant Jerry the Mouse to work with Red's butler Tom the Cat for the duration of this case.
On the outskirts of Riverton, "The Safest City in America", a pensive Inspector Gadget sits in his Gadgetmobile, along with his canine companion, Brain. Gadget is back on the job, on stakeout, but he is concerned that everything is too quiet in Riverton. He has a very simple, rational answer to this; " it's always the most quiet just before criminals strike". Evil must be afoot. In a moment of overzealous crime fighting Gadget arrests an elderly women for wreckless driving, but not without incident. In his effort to make the arrest Gadget's many crime fighting "accessories" go wildly astray. It's time to report back to headquarters for a checkup. Baxter, the "Q" of the Police Department, delivers the prognosis - as he is a prototype things are bound to have some glitches. The remedy is close at hand.

Care for a smoke, Gadget?

At the very end of the closing credits and before the Walt Disney Pictures logo appears on-screen, a cartoon iris appears and we see Brain, wearing Baxter's "Bark Translator", quack three times. See more »
This movie is heaps better than the first. For one thing they got the casting right in having French Stewart play Inspector Gadget. With his comedic background and animation he does a heaps better interpretation than Matthew Broderick.
It was good too see that it was filmed in Brisbane too and fun trying to pick out all the locations and see some of the best Aussie actors on the cast.
The DVD has a heap of extras on it and is informative. If you've got spare time one afternoon sit down and watch this for entertainment.
I can't wait for the 3rd in 3D and hope that they do a better job of it than Spy Kids 3D
