Trivia

Hitcher 2 was mid-production during 9-11-2001. Actors flying from Los Angeles and Vancouver were unable to travel due to the tragedy. The ending, and numerous scenes were re-written, as a consequence. Mackenzie Gray's character of the Lieutenant is the only antagonist not killed-off in the final scene, due to the grounding of planes through-out North America during 9-11. The director cast him five years later in Joy Ride 2, where he finally met his demise. See more »

Goofs

When being interrogated at the police station, the sheriff said that Maggie had no record when they ran her name, but you never hear them say if they ran Jack's name and that he had a record. If they would have ran his name he probably would have gone to jail and Maggie would have been freed. See more »

User Reviews

Typical Sequel.
18 December 2005 | by drhackenstineSee all my reviews

Unconvincing and thoroughly predictable sequel basically picks up 15 years after the events of the original. C. Thomas Howell returns to portray his original role. He and his girlfriend decide to take a road trip to visit his cop buddy. Along the way they are menaced by a psychopath (Jake Busey). Howell is offed about 35 minutes in, and the rest of the picture takes it's cues from the the original, only now the girlfriend is the main-victim-to-be. Jake Busey is good in the role as the psycho, and seems to enjoy himself. The rest of the cast is pretty bland. Kari Wuhrer plays the girlfriend, and is rather stiff in her role as the heroine. The story and pace moves along fine, so it's never really boring. However, there are really no clever plot twists or original ideas in this film like there were in the first film. The cat-and-mouse chase here is pretty lifeless, and not as character driven as it was in the original. A by-the-numbers treatment of the original. Not bad, just nothing to write home about. Features a high body-count. Two Stars.
