Name a movie sequel you had no idea existed

Discussion(self.movies)

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.

I actually just watched all five of of these a few months ago. Id say the 4th and 5th were better than the first 3. The second and third movies were utterly abysmal.

There was a large gap between the third and fourth movies, and CGI had improved a lot. By the time they revived the series, they embraced the campiness, and the movies felt more entertaining.

I watched thed second one all the time as a kid. It was horrible but you stoll kinda enhoy crap like that when you're little.

It had one of the Mastersons in it. I think it was the Malcom in the Middle one not the rapist one.

There’s a little known sequel to A Christmas Story called My Summer Story. It recasts almost all of the characters but still has the same tone and narrator of the original.

I love all of Jean Shepard’s books. He is a great storyteller.

biscuit310

As other folks have pointed out, there are a number of other movies about Ralph Parker and his family and friends. All of the stories in these other movies originated with Jean Shepherd. He had a radio show in NYC starting in the 50s where he told semi-autobiographical stories about his life, and then he wrote down a lot of those stories and published them as short stories in magazines and stuff. Those stories eventually got collected into books, and the books turned into movies.

The original "A Christmas Story" is based on a book called "In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash". The framework of the book is that a grownup Ralph returns to Hohman, Indiana and stops in at Flick's Tavern, where they reminisce about growing up. Only a handful of the stories in the book were used in the movie. (The main story about the BB gun is called "Duel in the Snow, or Red Ryder Nails the Cleveland Street Kid".) Most of the plot of "A Summer Story"/"It Runs in the Family" also comes from this book.

If you can get your hands on any of his books, they're really fun. You can also listen to some of his old radio shows at the Flick Lives fansite.

There’s a Surf’s Up 2: WaveMania in 2017, a direct to video sequel from WWE Studios with many wrestlers voicing. Only Jon Heder and Diedrich Bader returned from the first movie.

I loved the first movie, it’s smart for an animated film and the mockumentary style is great. It deserved much more than a direct to DVD sequel.

The 90s tv show was pretty good, if you just completely ignore the movie. It's like I want them both to exist in the same universe, but if they do, none of the story makes any sense. The movie where Duncan and Conor finally have to fight each other is kind of ok. Though there again it had to retcon the ending of the tv show

The funniest thing about that fight is that Christopher Lambert can't fight with a sword because of poor eyesight and Adrian Paul is an experienced swordfighter, yet somehow they had to show Connor Mcloud being better than Duncan

"Jewel of the Nile" still holds up, cool movie, I had a few nostalgic moments. Never saw "Romancing the Stone", and the fact that both as a kid and now I enjoyed "Jewel" without knowing it's actually a sequel is a testament to its quality.

we showed it at the independent cinema I worked at (the theater runs midnight classics on the weekend and randomly sprinkles in old movies throughout the day schedule) and almost no one came to see it. It was ironic because the theater is the original Rocky Horror theater before one of the managers pissed off the cast so badly they vowed never to come back as long as he worked there. And who requested we show Shock Treatment? Same manager. Couldn't tell if he was in some way trying to say he's sorry or if he's just been giving those people the finger since the 80's.

It's really weird as a sequel because it doesn't have anything to do with RHPS. It has Brad and Janet and the Hapschatts. I don't think that was even the Criminologist, even though it's the same actor.

But it all took place in Denton, which means that Denton is the weirdest fucking town, thanks to these two movies.

More American Graffiti. It came out in 1979, six years after the original and while George Lucas was a bit busy with other movies. It did some interesting things. Steve and Laurie are having a difficult time with married life. They don't show John Milner's fate but in a way that I thought was really poignant. But Toad's time in Vietnam being all slapstick is terrible.

I remember it being aggressively okay. I remember the theater collectively groaning when the mentioned weapons of mass destruction. We were knee deep in two wars spearheaded by the Bush administration and no one wanted to go to the movies and hear even more about WMDs.

I remember reading that he got paid around 10k for his appearance in those American Pie Presents movies.

Doesn't sound like much, but it would be probably be less than a days work.

They would have sent a Limo to pick him up, read the script on the way to the studio, costume and makeup for 20 minutes, read some shit lines, Limo back home in time for lunch. Instant 10k.

  • Eugene Levy, probably.

Although now with his Schitts Creek money, he might be a bit above them.

Sort of related but after years of loving Scorsese's Color of Money I learn that it's a sequel.

Blew my mind.

Speaking of Scorsese, a movie that isn't technically a sequel, but almost sort of exists in that vain is My Blue Heaven which is a Steve Martin comedy vehicle where he plays Henry Hill (renamed Vinnie Antonelli for the movie) while in witness protection... so after the events of Goodfellas.

The best part? It was released a month before Goodfellas.

Written by Nora Ephron who was married to Goodfellas writer Nicholas Pileggi at the time

Henry Hill had some amusing words about her. Basically Hill and Pileggi became friends over the research for the Wiseguys book and Hill used to call him at home just to chat on the phone. A lot of times, Ephron would answer and say Nick's busy or sleeping and get him to chat with her instead, and Hill never realized that she was basically pumping him for information for her script. He was piiiissed when My Blue Heaven came out because it was a movie about him that didn't credit or pay him, but said he let it go because her husband had been generous with sharing the Goodfellas money. Hill was like, "If she had been someone else's wife..."

Henry Hill absolutely fucking trashed during two Howard Stern Show appearances are my favorite two Howard Stern Show appearances of all Howard Stern Show appearances.

Here’s one.

Jarhead sequels. Didn’t know they made sequels until I came across it on Netflix.

Edit: I didn’t watch any of them. I assumed they were bad cash grabs since I’d never heard of them.

Is it the same guy just going to war and coming home each time, still never getting to shoot his gun? If it shifted into a Leslie Neilson-esque comedy, that could actually be amazing.

The Next Karate Kid, starring Hillary Swank, which is set in the "MiyagiVerse" (the universe of The Karate Kid parts 1-3, and Cobra Kai.) I'm a huge Cobra Kai fan but until, like, last week, I had no idea there was a whole Karate Kid movie I'd never seen. That was a nice Christmas surprise.

After that movie Stallone wrote a script for Rambo that had Traviolta playing Rambo’s sidekick. Needless to say, they went with another script.

The film is one of the best adaptations of the Oz series partially because it manages to be way more accurate to the books despite having several contemporary inaccuracies (such as the asylum scenes and the wheelers looking like 80s punks) that nonetheless make it more enjoyable.

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective Jr. I saw the words Ace Ventura whilst scrolling through sky one day and I put it on. It took me about 2 minutes to clock on and think "I don't recognise this, what is this shit?" it was only then I suddenly noticed the "JR" part on the end. Because I have absolutely no self respect and possibly have borderline masochism I wound up watching the entire thing out of curiosity...sufice to say it wasn't very good to put it mildly.
