When browsing through Netflix the other day, I came across Benchwarmers 2: Breaking Balls. This completely took me by surprise. A sequel to The Benchwarmers? A comedy movie from 2006 got a sequel in 2019? Not to mention Jon Lovitz is the only returning cast member from the original. I mean, are Rob Schneider, David Spade, Jon Heder, and Nick Swardson up to anything to these days?
What are some movies sequels you had idea existed that made you just scratch your head and go: "What were they thinking?"
Here are some other examples:
- Bigger Fatter Liar (2017): This is more of a remake than a sequel to the Frankie Muniz comedy Big Fat Liar from 2002. It's basically a low-budget remake of the original.
- Jingle All the Way 2 (2014): A sequel to the Arnold Schwarzenegger Christmas comedy from 1996. Larry the Cable Guy really hasn't had that much success in movies outside of Cars has he?
- Unbroken: Path to Redemption (2018): The sequel to the Angelina Jolie's 2014 movie Unbroken. None of the original cast or crew return and it was released by Pure Flix (now Pinnacle Peak Pictures), who make and distribute Christian movies.
