In this sequel to The Girl, the Gold Watch & Everything, down-on-his-luck Kirby Winter inherits a floundering business, and the magical gold watch which can stop time. But his wedding plans with Bonnie Lee Beaumont are interrupted when her mother phones them to help her save her family farm from a nasty land developer - using the gold watch's powers.Written by
This sequel to the great "The Girl, the Gold Watch & Everything" is such a let down. The first TV movie had charming performances from Robert Hayes, Pam Dawber, and Jill Ireland. Sorry to say that, aside from Morgan Fairchild (who appeared of "Mork & Mindy" with Dawber), the cast of the sequel is very poor. I guess Dawber's and Hayes' starring roles on the sit-coms "Mork & Mindy" and "Angie" made them unavailable or too expensive for the sequel.
Perhaps it was the sloppy script that was the problem. The way Kirby rescues his friends from the barn doesn't make sense. The watch allows him to stop time but doesn't give him super strength. And then one of his friends assumes that Kirby just moved really fast? The first time this aired on TV I recommended it to my friend, because I thought it would be as good as the first one, which he hadn't seen. I was very embarrassed.
