Number 5 is back, and he's learning more about being human, as he is brought to the big city. Despite having a different director on board, the hammy, cheesy acting returns as well, and to be perfectly honest, I actually think I like this movie just as much as the first one. The toy versions of Johnny Five are absolutely adorable, especially in the opening credits when one of them browses around t... read more

Top 11 Underrated Nostalgia Critic Reviews (11 webtv items)

"He also did the first movie, but it's part 2 that there was more to make fun of. One of my favorite parts of the review is Doug's reaction to the one line by Benjamin, where it's like he said "f***ing.""

“Number 5 is back, and he's learning more about being human, as he is brought to the big city. Despite having a different director on board, the hammy, cheesy acting returns as well, and to be perfectly honest, I actually think I like this movie just as much as the first one. The toy versions of Johnny Five are absolutely adorable, especially in the opening credits when one of them browses around the shopping mall. The subplot involving Ben falling for toymaker Sandy is charming and gives Ben decent character development. Okay, the truth is, it's more or less like the first one, but it's by no means bad or anything.

My rating: 6/10” read more

"It wouldn't be a Short Circuit movie, unless Johnny Five gets wrecked to pieces. Plus, one of the most stereotypical depictions of a street gang, that is in film history. Even for a kids film."
