In this sequel to My Girl, Vada Sultenfuss (Anna Chlumsky) is now thirteen and at the crossroads of adolescence, beginning to question her past. Her father Harry (Dan Aykroyd) is now married to Shelly (Jamie Lee Curtis) and preoccupied with an expectant child. Vada feels left out and decides to write about her mother -- whom she knows nothing about -- for a school project. Vada wants to travel to Los Angeles during spring break to find out more about her mother by interviewing old friends and acquaintances. Harry is reluctant to let her go but finally agrees when he arranges for her to stay with her Uncle Phil (Richard Masur), who lives in L.A. with his girlfriend Rose (Christine Ebersole) and Rose's son Nick (Austin O'Brien), who happens to be the same age as Vada. Together Vada and Nick travel all over Los Angeles, uncovering revelations about Vada's mother and her past.~Paul Brenner
Was just a movie I liked from the 90's so really just wanted it for my collection of dvd's. It's story line stays close to the first one so its a good one to have if you own the first.
This review is from My Girl 2 [DVD] 
I would recommend this to a friend
Rating 4 out of 5 stars with 1 review
Sequel to My Girl
Normally you do not see a sequel to a movie outdo the original, but In this case it is a happy exception. While we enjoyed the original "My Girl”, it left us depressed, not only from Thomas J's untimely death, but in Vada's severe emotional reaction to the loss of her best friend. Anna Chlumsky and Austin O'Brien do a very good job of portraying their characters. The story line is credible and anyone who has visited California will relate very well to the scenery and characters. The best part of the movie is the very positive storyline and the happy ending which was missing in the original.
