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 10 - Cruel Intentions 2 (Dave)
This was a disaster from the start. The plan to make a tv series called "Manchester Prep" based on the movie. After filming 3 episodes that were deemed "unairable" someone had the idea to make a sequel. So they did some editing with the footage for the show, did some dubbing to change the names and filmed some new material for an ending and came up with this-- for better or worse. Mostly worse.
Melanie - Definitely worse Dave! Ugh I LOVED the first movie! It was fabulous, had an amazing soundtrack, and then I saw this! Now I was in England at the time this was released and all we knew was that it was a "Prequel", Now knowing it was a scrapped TV show it makes so much sense as everything was crammed in, there was too much going on, and yet nothing happening. All it did for me was put me in a bad mood! The cast, whilst strong, just don't compare to the originals and even they can't save this trainwreck. This one falls strongly in the category "Let's Pretend It Didn't Happen"!
