Short Circuit 2
Megabytes of input! Get ready for a very spirited discussion about this surprisingly ambitious 1988 comedy. It probably seems strange to revisit the sequel without looking at the original Short Circuit, but we all realized that we have much clearer and fonder memories of this one.
Short Circuit 2 has so much more going for it than any of us could possibly have anticipated. For a kids movie about a talking robot, this slapstick fish-out-of-water story is also brimming with moral dilemmas, spiritual quandaries, and philosophical ponderings. We're not making this up! And because the filmmakers chose to make a movie that was actually about something rather than going for a simple cash grab, we were able to enjoy this one just as much as adults as we did as children.
