3rd Rock From the Sun’s French Stewart steps into the shoes previously filled by Matthew Broderick in this straight-to-DVD sequel to Disney’s Inspector Gadget. Arch-nemesis Dr. Claw is back to his evil ways, causing havoc for Inspector Gadget and the citizens of Riverton. Adding an additional twist is G2 (Elaine Hendrix), a new robot cop who provides a little crime-fighting competition to Gadget. Directed by Alex Zamm, Inspector Gadget 2 also stars Caitlin Wachs. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi
Based on the popular cartoon character of the same name, Inspector Gadget is an adventure comedy about a somewhat naive and inept security guard, John Brown, whose big heart is equal to his far-fetched dreams of becoming the world’s greatest police officer. However, nothing is impossible. Suddenly unexpected circumstances make him the ideal candidate for a top secret law enforecment project, and pretty scientist Dr. Brenda Bradford applies her expertise in robotics to build him into a man of many talents–and accessories. Using a vast array of grafted-on gizmos and doohickies to bust bad guys, the often clueless Inspector Gadget must also employ his common sense to crack an especially complicated case. As he penetrates Riverton City’s darkest underworld, Inspector Gadget must save not only his good name and reputation, but also rescue the world from the nefarious Claw.
