Worst Movie Sequel Ever

    Would Hurt even be alive? Or would have have transitioned from coke-head to hedge fund/VC bigwig with the trophy wife and kids he never sees?

    Berrenger would still have the porn-stache as a reminder of his heady days but instead of Selleck/Jack he'd be more someone rediscovered in a Tarantino movie.

    Godfather III was nominated for best picture, so no dice there. As good as the first two? Not even close. Worst movie sequel ever? Hell no.

    I'd nominate Sex and the City 2, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, D3: The Mighty Ducks, Major League: Back to the Minors, and any of the Transformers sequels for third place behind No. 2 Caddyshack II. But No. 1 is easily Exorcist II: The Heretic. That was sooooooo bad.

    I have trouble including sequels to original movies that weren't very good. Major League was a good movie. The Mighty Ducks wasn't bad. I'm not sure Sex and the City, Charlie's Angels, or Transformers qualify as good.

    To me, part of being an historically-bad sequel is that the first movie in the series is at least good if not great.

    If I remember right Kline was about to cash in by selling his chain of running-shoe stores to some big corporation.

    I thought he was a lawyer and Place was a lawyer who worked for a shoe company. NOW the movie makes sense! And Kline and Close lived in Richmond, VA. and the SC house was a vacation home. Place was a real estate exec.

    Fair enough, but the real point is that The Exorcist II is the worst sequel ever made.

    I don't doubt it. I've just never seen that one.

    My mother was a horror film junkie, and during the 1980s, she rented us a lot of really bad horror films. She loved the Exorcist. Wouldn’t let us ever rent exorcist 2. I thought it must be have been super scary. She just said it was just a bad movie and not worth it.

    They made two more of them, somehow.

    i kind of have a soft spot for the third one even if it was a separate book that the sort of got slammed into an exorcist flick. It has some good moments.

    let’s not forget that technically, “twinkle, twinkle, killer Kane,” was the sequel to exorcist that Blatty quasi intended because it partly followed the story of the astronaut who regan said “would die up there.”

    Another not terrible idea for a sequel would be Almost Famous.
    Penny Lane is dying and William visits her and they talk about the old days. She says she's lost touch with the band, but still hears things from time to time second-hand. The kid would track down the former members of Stillwater, trying to make a case for them to be included in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame or at least a career reassessment. The bassist and drummer would still be performing with "Stillwater" on the fair and tribal casino circuit playing the hits, Russell still writes an ocassional song and TV appearance as a guest judge on a tv talent show, but retired from a good run as a producer based in Nashville, . Jeff transitioned to acting a bit here and there and a semi-successful solo career (see Glenn Frey). Still a lot of resentment - how MTV changed everything "It used to just be about the music, man. Lights, dancers, weird videos" (the movie would include a classically self-important, and unintentionally hilarious video the band made trying to hold on to their relevance), "I mean, what was that all about?"
