Description by OLDIES.com:
The House Party pals make sure the party isn't over in a fresh comedy that asks: "What happens when the school records of a brainiac dweeb (Kid, the guy with the high-rise 'do) and a got-attitude street tough (hip-hop style master Play) get accidentally switched?" Meshach Taylor (Designing Women), Karyn Parsons (Fresh Prince of Bel-Air), Alysia Rogers (Boyz N the Hood), Doug E. Doug (Hangin' with the Homeboys) and guest-stars Rhea Perlman (Cheers) and MTV maniac Pauly Shore (Encino Man) round out the class cast. And the def music is a class tune-up too.
Two students, one a mild-mannered well-spoken intellectual, the other a street-wise gangster-in-training, get their school records mixed up and take full advantage of the situation.
In this second Kid 'N Play film, the resident high school genius switches identities with the class delinquent, setting the stage for all manner of comic complications. To make matters even stickier, both guys meet the girl of their dreams while masquerading as the other, making it all the harder to end their charade.
