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 different 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 9 - Grease 2 (Mel)
Grease 2 is one of the few movies where I think the sequel is better than the original. Yup, I said it! And I am not taking it back. I KNOW it gets TONS of hate and makes almost every do not watch ever list BUT I DON'T CARE! The cast is fabulous, yes the story is ridiculous but did you watch the first one? It had a FLYING CAR AT THE END so let's not go there. The soundtrack is amazing, I can't even count the number of times belted out "Cool Rider" when I was younger, enough that I still know all the words today. You have a ridiculous talent show, motorcycles, and an English guy! What more could you ask for?
Jenn Says - This sequel is another one that absolutely has nothing to do with the first, well except for the name of the school, and the name of the T birds and pink ladies, and yes I mean "Grease 2". This sequel gets a lot of push back but to me I like it a lot. The guy wanting the girl he can’t have but changes to get her anyways, almost like the first but not entirely so if you like "Grease", then I think you’ll like "Grease 2" as well. I sure did.
Dave Says - I saw parts of this one in work recently. Seems like I saw it before though. Don't remember much about it.
