Top 10 Worst Movie Sequels

Batman and Robin is one of the worst movie sequels ever made.

It's really hard to make a good movie, but it's even harder to make a good sequel! Kidzworld lists the ten worst sequels of all time!

#10. Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights

The year is 1958. A daddy's girl moves to Cuba. There is some dancing. Patrick Swayze shows up. Most bad sequels take what was great about the original movie and try deperately to replicate it, normally failing miserably. Well, this 'remake' totally fits the bill. The best thing about the original Dirty Dancing was sizzling chemistry between the Swayze and Jennifer Grey. This movie however, is all fizzle and no sizzle.

#9. The Next Karate Kid

It might get repetitive to tell you that tweaking the details from a classic film, losing the main star, and then trying to make a sequel rarely works out well. This movie is no exception. Hilary Swank went on to win two Oscars, but at one point she was Julie-san, a tomboy who needed to learn to deal with her anger. Every martial arts movie cliché comes out in this flick which Ralph Macchio wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole. Oh, did we tell you about the scene with monks bowling blindfolded? Exactly.

#8. Return of Jafar

Fantastic animated classics are remade every day for a new generation of viewers to enjoy, and most importantly, to make some cash. Unfortunately, greed normally forces a subpar sequel through production even though it possesses none of the charm of the original. Robin Williams didn't sign up for this flick, and that meant the movie had to focus on the very unfunny / annoying Gilbert Gottfried as Iago. One bonus was that being angry at Iago's obnoxiousness made it harder to realize that the movie's story and animation sucked!

#7. Scary Movie 2

All of the Scary Movie sequels could be listed here, but that would be excessive. At the very least, the original Scary Movie had an interesting premise as a flick that was designed to make fun of the teen slasher genre. It worked well enough to make some pretty good dough at the box office. Of course, the sequel was pumped out way too soon and there weren't enough fresh jokes to carry it. The sad part is that this sequel had seven writers, and none of them could come up with anything original!

#6. Daddy Day Camp

One sure way to make a horrible sequel is to remake a movie that was bad to begin with, but somehow managed to scrape together a few bucks at the box office. The main issue with this movie is 'no Eddie Murphy' syndrome. Sure, Cuba Gooding won an Oscar back in the day, but Eddie can make money while talking to animals. Even Norbit made money! What has Cuba done other than accepted every brutal movie that fell into his lap since the Academy Award. Somebody needs to fire his agent, because there is no possible way this movie seemed like a good idea after he read the script.

Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
