15 movie sequels you should avoid watching
(HLNtv.com) — It's the season of sequels! "22 Jump Street" just hit theaters, and several more are premiering soon, including "Think Like a Man Too" and "Dumb and Dumber To." Let's hope they don't end up like these duds:
"Staying Alive": Catch up with Tony Manero five years after "Saturday Night Fever" -- awesome! Oh wait, he's now a jazz dance instructor trying to make it on Broadway? No thanks.
"Grease 2": No Danny? No Sandy? What kind of "Grease" sequel is this?!
"Beethoven's 2nd": We already braved the first one (for the kids, of course!). Please don't make us do it again.
"I Still Know What You Did Last Summer": Alternatively, "When Bad Things Happen to Stupid People," according to one critic at least.
"Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights": At least there's a cameo by Patrick Swayze.
"The Return of Jafar": How can you bring back Aladdin without Robin Williams as the Genie?
"Basic Instinct 2": Critics complain that it's gloomy, monotonous and lacks in the murder department.
"Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2": It just doesn't work without that make-you-queasy camera work that earned the original so much buzz.
"Speed 2": Why does Sandra Bullock keep getting stuck on things? Cruise ships can't even go that fast.
"Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde": The first flick took us by surprise. Yep, we actually liked it! But many felt this sequel was a little too blonde.
"Weekend at Bernie's II": How many times can you really walk around with a dead corpse? Sorry, but we're not buying it this go around.
"Son of the Mask": The only one who could make it work was Jim Carrey.
"A Christmas Story 2": We're all gonna shoot our eyes out.
"American Wedding": We liked watching this group of besties in the coming-of-age classic, "American Pie." But isn't it time to start acting like adults already?
"Blues Brothers 2000": Many fans and critics felt John Goodman just couldn't fill the void left by the late John Belushi.
