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 26 - Another 9 1/2 Weeks AKA Love In Paris (Mel)
I LOVED 9 1/2 Weeks - I mean not then ending, but the premise, the chemistry, the feel. To this day that movie is one of my favorites and the main theme is often played on my spotify list (Slave to Love - you can hear it here - with clips from the movie). Dark and sexy, a tale of obsession, of pushing boundaries, of questions why? And then 10 years later they decided that hey - maybe we should follow up with what happened after. The short answer is they just shouldn't have! Following Mickey Rourke's character as he chases the high he felt 10 years before, with Kim Bassinger not agreeing to be in the sequel- you ended up with a not so good looking Mickey (age did him no favors), trying to recreate key moments in the original - with a new woman - and comments about how she read all about it in the diary. A poor attempt to recapture the rare magic that was 9 1/2 weeks. Now if you haven't seen that one? You should check it out ASAP!
