Welcome to February's 28 Days Of Sequels! Every day throughout February one of our VIPers (Dave, Jenn, Or Melanie) with occasional comments from the others will present a movie sequel complete with a trailer!
The big difference with this list is they aren't all winners that we loved. Some were disappointments and some just trainwrecks. Hollywood is short on original ideas so when one hits big, they milk it for all its worth and squeeze it dry. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
Day 28 - Staying Alive (Mel)
Saturday Night Fever was a huge hit - I expect most people have heard of it even if they haven't seen it. For me though - the sequel that came out 5 years later won the day. Musers that have been around might remember I even did a forgotten feature Friday about it (video included below), where I explained how I love this more than the original and why. Don't get me wrong - this is no cinematic masterpiece by any means. Rather it's a dance movie (which you can totally watch without having seen Saturday Night Fever), with a crazy Broadway Show (Satan's Alley), and you can just sit back and remember how awesome the 80s were!
Have you seen it? What did you think?
