Storyline

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. Written by Liz Jordan <c9310494@alinga.newcastle.edu.au>

Trivia

When the kids visit Stanley the wedding photographer, played by Ben Stein, he remarks "Stanley Rosenfeld never forgets". Intentional or not, it's a funny line coming from Ben Stein as he famously has a photographic memory, so never forgets. See more »

Goofs

in an earlier scene, Vada and her family were watching "the Partridge Family". when Vada and her father go bowling she mentions missing Archie Bunker, however, in 1974 (when the movie is set) The Partridge Family and All in the Family were shown at the same time on the same night, so she'd already missed Archie Bunker while she was watching The Partridge Family.

Quotes

[first lines]
Vada Sultenfuss: [narration to audience] 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 sequel's just as good as the original
14 June 2015 | by WuchakkSee all my reviews

The original "My Girl" from 1991 was a quality drama about a 10 year-old girl experiencing tragic death. In "My Girl 2" she's now 13 and goes to Southern California to learn about her mother she never knew. Her companion is played by Austin O'Brien. Dan Aykroyd and Jamie Lee Curtis play her father and stepmother while Richard Masur and Christine Ebersole co-star as her uncle and potential aunt. The beautiful Angeline Ball has a small role as her mother in flashbacks.

This is just a solid drama, as good or better than the original. The adventures of the two 13 year-olds as they go from person to person searching for information about Vada's mother compels the story along. The people they meet are colorful or interesting. The peripheral subplots are good too, like will the Uncle propose to Rose or allow some rich dude with a Jaguar to snatch her up?

The film runs 99 minutes and was shot in Los Angeles, California, including Topanga Canyon.

GRADE: B
