Double bill of family films. In 'Inspector Gadget' (1999), John Brown (Matthew Broderick) is an inept security guard employed by scientist Artemus Bradford (Rene Auberjonois) and his daughter Brenda (Joely Fisher) to safeguard their work on the synthesis of robotics and human tissue. When the Bradfords' arch-rival Sanford Scolex (Rupert Everett) steals their work, John gives chase, and both end up involved in a car crash. Sanford looses his hand in the crash, but John's injuries are much more serious, and Brenda takes this as an opportunity to use her father's technology to transform the security guard into Inspector Gadget, the ultimate crime-fighting cyborg. For his part, Sanford replaces his hand with a robotic substitute, changes his name to 'Claw', and - desperate for revenge - sets out to discredit Gadget by creating an evil robot lookalike, one which will wage a campaign of terror throughout the city. In 'Inspector Gadget 2' (2002), the hapless Inspector Gadget returns, this time with French Stewart in the title role. Gadget has been put on parole and Claw (Tony Martin) has escaped from prison in order to put into action a fiendish new plan. Meanwhile, the mayor has unveiled a newer, robotic, female version of Inspector Gadget, known as G2 (Elaine Hendrix). Together the two Gadgets must team up to stop Claw, but the usual mishaps occur.
