I watched this a few years back after having seen the first one many years prior. I thought I was having some kind of episode because so much of the film was intensely similar to the first but I didn't really remember the first one that well. It took me longer than it should have to realize they were recycling full scenes from the first movie as "flashbacks".

I now remember nothing about this film except my confusion and the now legendary "Garbage day!" line quoted above.

I have a lot of fondness for movies that are recycled from other movies, I'm not entirely sure why. But yeah worth watching for the "Garbage Day" scene which I say to myself every week as I take out the garbage.

The eyebrows were the real star.

Eric Freemen reprised his role as Ricky 3 years ago in a short film. Ricky Caldwell is now in the Waverly Psychiatric Institution and discusses the movie based on his life.
