SYNOPSIS:  FBI agent Kyle pulls suicidal pleasure android Circuitry Man out of an insane asylum to help track down evil android Plughead, who is manufacturing longevity chips at his secret Brazilian base with the help of scientist Norma (Traci Lords). Meanwhile, convicts Leech and Rock escape from a Brazilian chain gang and go searching for Plughead for reasons that are completely unclear. And a pair of bumbling cops are dispatched to track the escaped criminals down. Wackiness ensues and Plughead gets to say, "Why jack off when you can jack in?" again.

Smithee Award Winner! Deus Ex Machina

A guard surprises Leech and Rock by suddenly appearing on camera, despite there being no place he could have come from without being seen. Luckily for them, a safe materializes above the guard's head and crushes him. A safe full of money.

That's Not What They Call It in Arkansas
They're three hours short of having enough oxygen to reach their destination (maybe stopping to have sex in the previous scene wasn't such a good idea, after all). But Circuitry Man can plug with the horse and increase its muscular efficiency by 300%. Or something.

Smithee Award Winner! "WHAT?!"

Killing Him Softly....
Plughead has gone into Circuitry Man's mind, which resembles the cover of a cheesy romance novel. Circuitry Man and Kyle gently kiss. Plughead loses his patience, and yells, "What are you going to do, kill me with your love?"
