"I was inspired to see this after seeing the original, and this one falls into that rare category of "Sequel Good As / Better Than the Original". Stephen Chow is truly hysterical; I can't remember laughing so hard in a long time. Check this out, it is well worth your while."

"Stephen Chow has to go back to school undercover and brings along his friends he met in the last movie. Funny how part 2 lives up to the title and he really has to fight back to school this time. Him and his girlfriend are going to get married, but he ends up spending all of their wedding money on his undercover job. Deannie Yip has a small role as the Chief Inspector and she is brilliant just like always. And nice to see cameos from Blacky Ko, James Wong, and Mark Houghton.
Fight Back to School part 1 is a great comedy, yet still managed to stay serious for a large portion of the film. Part 2 is just a masterpiece in every way. The comedy comes in huge doses and I won't even try elaborate on how funny it is. Only Stephen Chow can pull off not wanting to kiss an 18 year old girl this well. It is really a dream sequel for fans of the first movie.
Sadly, the fights are even more sparse than Part 1. That is because there are no real fights. Everything is played for laughs and it works very well. There is a great shootout at the end and it tops the movie off nicely.
