    A while back, in a discussion of the validity of the Boogie Nights 2 rumor, lists of bad ideas for sequals started emerging. I thought I'd present a few that cracked me up, and a few that I thought of, that IMO weren't too shabby either! [​IMG]
    - Unpleasantville (the kids get sucked into 'Married With Children')
    - The Mummy Returns Again and is told to go home.
    - Re-Bound
    - Found Highway (basically just explains what the frist one was all about)
    - Low Fidelity Cusack becomes a Basshead!!!!
    - Buffalo '69: Billy's Back [​IMG]
    (mine)
    - Legally Blonde 2: Dye Harder
    Ken McAlinden
    - The Nightmare Before Easter
    - Further Out of Sight
    - American Pie 3: Pie Harder
    Aaron Reynolds
    - Glitter 2: Electric Boogaloo
    Eric Thrall
    - Lawrence of England: The Early Years
    Jonathan Perregaux
    So. Any wannabe producers out there ready to put up some cash? [​IMG]
    (edit: shit. can a mod please change the of in the thread title to a for. how embarrassing. :b)

    You've Got Spam Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan both come to a horrible end when they ignore a chain letter.
    The Time Machine: Redux They go back to reshoot the entire movie only to find that they can't change the destiny of this movie. It bombs, again.
    Blade III: The Ginzu Knife Vampires are extinct so Wesley Snipes starts a cooking show.
    Chocolate Sky Tom Cruise is not only disfigured, but he has a weight problem.
    WilderThings Just more of the first. Oh yeah. [​IMG]

    Eight They invent a brand new sin, and Kevin Spacey comes back from the dead.
    The Unusual Suspects Inanimate objects, household appliances, and a couple corpses are implicated in a complicated tale of identity.
    Little Trouble in Little China Kurt Russel just stands around for an hour and absolutely nothing happens. It still does better than 3000 Miles To Graceland [​IMG]
    Hug of the Dragon Jet Li goes through sensitivity training and becomes a kinder, gentler killing machine.
    American Ugly Annette Bening's character comes back and comes to grips with her husband's death and an accident at the plastic surgeon's.
    Walk Lola Walk Lola is in absolutely no rush to get where she's going, and they show her taking an hour to walk anywhere three separate times. A throbbing classical music soundtrack with lots of bass accompanies.
    Terminator 3 They make a third Terminator movie [​IMG].

    Someone who looks an awful lot like Sandra Bullock but isn't is strapped to a guided missile that can't be stopped... and it's aimed straight at the Eiffel Tower!
    JAG
    Directed by Oliver Stone and starring Jason Alexander as The President, this gripping drama follows the layers of conspiracy that led to the assassination of James A. Garfield in 1881 by an embittered attorney... or was it the train conductor? We may never know! Featuring a cameo appearance by Dick Van Dyke as the famous Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone, who tries unsuccessfully to find the bullet with an induction-balance electrical device of his own design... or is it? Everyone is suspect! Even you!
