. . . and boy is it ever craptastic. I mean, at least "Revenge of the Nerds 2: Nerds in Paradise" (1987) had a couple of good moments, but this thing is just rotten. Granted, the first one was not likely to win any awards, but I'd say that the most clever thing in the entire sequel is using the word "too" instead of "two," and that's barely smart. Here are the worst things about this steaming pile of crud movie:
1. Justin Bateman just isn't as likable as Michael J. Fox. It's not all his fault. I mean, the script sucks, and I think the budget wasn't as good because his makeup for the wolf just looks creepy and cheap. Fox's wolf was charming, and Bateman's is ugly and just looks like a crappy Halloween costume.
2. Instead of basketball, this wolf's sport is boxing. Now, the thing that always bothered me about a kid turning into a werewolf and dominating high school basketball, is that there was no press coming to these games. There were literally like 25 kids at these games with risers that were no more than five rows deep. Wouldn't that be a national news story - Someone turning into a fictional lycanthrope beast and dunking in games? Okay, well, let's just say that maybe we will allow this werewolf to play basketball. Sure. But boxing? That thing's going to kill someone in that ring! If that were my kid off at college getting mauled by a werewolf in that ring, I'd be pissed, right?
3. They couldn't get Michael J. Fox back, but they did get the guy who played Chubby in the first film, the poor kid who looked so pasty and fat in that basketball jersey and clearly had no athletic ability. While they got him, they couldn't get the original "Stiles," - the guy who encouraged Fox's character to play the most reckless dangerous game of all time: Car surfing. As if standing on a van during hair pin turns isn't dangerous enough, but the wolf would turn back flips up there. Anyway, new "Stiles" looks kind of like Boner from "Growing Pains," only he has maybe the longest mullet of the 80's for a guy not in Kajagoogoo.
That's all I got for now. What do you think is one of the crummiest sequels of all time?
