The fates of two dumbasses is challenged by an man from their future, bent on bending their future-utopia into his world-domination.
An excellent movie. Though it does suffer from some generation-drift, it suffers far less than its predecessor. It's not childish, but it is light enough to be "young". Enjoyable, well-written and recommended. Grab a beer and some popcorn with your buddies and enjoy this at least once.
