Same crap, different movie. Not that the first one was that bad, but this one - in merely copying the same story again - makes its shortcomings all the more obvious.

This time, Klump is content, about to marry colleague Denise (Jackson) and enjoying his career. But Buddy Love is still part of him and still rears his head at inopportune moments to wreak havoc on his life, so Klump decides to try and extract Love from his system.

Of course, he's developed a serum that Love desperately needs to take over Klump fully, hiding it in the Klump's house and giving Love ample opportunity to come up against Murphy in every possible guise.

Not that the first film was a paragon of good taste (witness the dinner table scene), but too many of the jokes in this one are just gross.
