Top 10 Worst Movie Sequels (pg. 2)
#5. Son of the Mask
Where to start? The Mask was the perfect film vehicle for Jim Carrey's zany antics and blessed the world with the first big screen viewing of Cameron Diaz. Unfortunately, Son of the Mask has neither of those two stars, and instead puts Jamie Kennedy in the leading role. The dog is the only likeable character, and in general this lame sequel proves that special effects can't make up for a total lack of plot. Not s-s-s-mokin'!
#4. Legally Blond 2: Red, White and Blonde
In the first Legally Blonde flick, Elle Woods was cute and you couldn't help but root for her on her journey through Law School. In the sequel though, you can't help but be annoyed as cutesy jokes turn into real groaners, over and over again. The movie is about Capitol Hill, probably the most boring place on earth to begin with, and just because Elle makes something pink, doesn't make it funny. Even in 2003, Chihuahuas were so 2001.
#3. Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd
Don't mess with perfection! The person who thought a prequel to Dumb and Dumber was a good idea should be working at a KFC drive-thru in Arkansas, (no offense to anyone who actually works at a KFC in Arkansas). What could possibly be worse that watching two unknown actors do impressions of two of the most genius comic performances in history for two straight hours? If we've learned anything it's that you can't do a sequel of a Jim Carrey movie without Jim Carrey. Dumb. Dumb. Dumberer.
#2. Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace
There are a lot of bad movies out there, especially bad sequels. But the really painful part about this super long Happy Meal Toy commercial is that it was so eagerly anticipated. Star Wars fans waited over 15 years to see what? A talentless eight year old and Jar Jar Binks! Ouch. That must have hurt. This movie was supposed to be all about what made Darth Vader tick, but became more focused on what kind of shiny merchandise they could sell to kids who had never even heard of the original Star Wars. The only good thing about this flick is Natalie Portman, and even that is being generous.
#1. Batman and Robin
George Clooney could probably run for president and people wouldn't bat an eye (no pun intended) but there was a time when he wore a batsuit with nipples and starred in the film which almost killed Batman on the big screen forever. This movie fell into the Star Wars trap by focusing on merchandise while completely ignoring what makes a decent flick. The talents of Uma Thurman and Clooney were totally wasted, but the talentless Alicia Silverstone, Chris O'Donnell and Arnold Schwarzenegger fit right in to a script so full of lame one-liners that you barely have enough time to groan at one before the next shows up. Such a bad movie, but it will only make The Dark Knight that much better!
