Dessert Potluck: In the true Italian spirit of Ferragosto, it's time to set aside work and indulge in scrumptious delicacies. Everyone is encouraged to share some sweets at our August film screening! Casa Italiana and our good friend Nasi will be selling wine, soda and water, as usual.

The sequel to Smetto Quando Voglio, it has inspector Paola Coletti (Greta Scarano) visit Pietro in jail and convincing him to reunite the band to be an unofficial strike squad against smart drugs, wiping their criminal record clean in exchange. In addition to the old cast, Pietro recruits Giulio Bolle (Marco Bonini), an anatomist who got expelled after a phisical cofrontation with his professors and, never becoming an actual doctor, applies his knowledge of human anatomy to illegal fights, Lucio Napoli (Gianpaolo Morelli), an exiled engineer selling technology to criminal warlords and the likes, and Vittorio (Rosario Losna), the lawyer mentioned in the previous movie just to be sure.This movie tones down the social criticism of the first one, and the sense of humor loses a bit his sense of novity. However, its still hilarious, and compensate the loss of novity with a better plot, making it overall better than it's predecessor.

Trama: La banda dei ricercatori è tornata: l'associazione a delinquere "con il più alto tasso di cultura di sempre" di Smetto quando voglio decide di ricostituirsi quando una poliziotta offre al capo, Pietro Zinni, uno sconto di pena e a tutto il gruppo la ripulitura della fedina penale, a patto che aiutino le forze dell'ordine a vincere la battaglia contro le smart drug. Così questi laureati costretti a campare di espedienti in un'Italia che non sa che farsene della loro cultura vanno a recuperare un paio di cervelli in fuga e lavorano insieme per stanare i creatori delle nuove droghe fatte con molecole non ancora illegali. Pietro però non può rivelare nulla del suo nuovo incarico alla compagna Giulia, incinta del loro primo figlio, ed è costretto ad inventare con lei bugie sempre più colorite.
