Half-baked sequel to the first comedy reunites Richard Dreyfuss and Emilio Estevez, plus throws in the new addition of comedienne Rosie O’Donnell.

O’Donnell is a member of the DA’s office who has to pretend to be Dreyfuss’ wife with Estevez as their son; they’re assigned to watch a lakefront estate that houses a possible witness set to provide evidence against a mob boss. The witness is suspected to be running from an upcoming trial, leaving the three to keep a close eye on the place and make sure nothing else goes awry.

The three leads are very able, O’Donnell in particular is just what this kind of movie needs, but it’s forgettable and trite.
