Over the years, there have been a lot of movies that got sequels that were undeserving of it which has made us think about the movies that should have had one. If we hope consider the time left between some movies and their existing sequel ( a good example is the 35 years space between Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049), all hope is not lost for some of our favourite movies.
Here are eight movies that are deserving of sequels and we hope movie houses will consider giving them one soon.
If “American Pie” can be turned into a trilogy—and countless spinoffs, there is no reason for wedding Crashers not to have a straight up sequel. Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn’s chemistry on the movie was excellent and every other actors in the film delivers, from Jane Seymour to Christopher Walken to Bradley Cooper to Isla Fisher.
Grapevine sources believe that a part 2 of the wedding Crashers is in the works, but we don’t want to get too excited until we actually see a trailer.
This 2006 Colin Farrell/Jamie Foxx big-screen really did the trick back then and not a few people wondered why it hasn’t had a sequel. If Charlie’s Angels can get a sequel, Vice Miami definitely should get one, too.
At the time this movie was released, the director Quentin Tarantino was pretty much unknown and the Christian Slater flick is just begging for a sequel. Why there are a lot of reasons for this movie not to have a follow-up, we would still like to see one.
Questions such as would the main character that is prone to violence still have haunted visions of Elvis? Will Patricia Arquette still be on his arm? Unfortunately, the late James Gandolfini will not be making a return if there is ever a sequel to help beef up Brad Pitt’s stoner character, but it should still be able to do remarkably well.
From the boombox that conjures up the genie that is Kazaam which could be found in a school basement, for starters and the fact that a similar movie in Jumanji just made its way back to the cinemas, it sure should join the sequels train.
Fast Times at Ridgemont High
This movie had a fun cast of characters who went on to do interesting things. A sequel can pick things up from where they lef it, move straight to graduation or even start with all of them in college.
A high school reunion could also do it, with Sean Penn reprising his character while being paired with Jennifer Jason Leigh, Nicolas Cage, Judge Reinhold, Forest Whitaker, Anthony Edwards and Eric Stoltz. This stellar cast will sure deliver beyond our expectations.
The writing/direct team of Joe Eszterhas and Paul Verhoeven made this movie after they were just coming off the super production of Basic Instinct. As such, we can give them a chance to once again polish the apple that was—and remains—Elizabeth Berkeley.
A lot of us loved the characters on the movie especially those portrayed by Elizabeth Berkeley and Gina Gershon. A follow-up could move things from Las Vegas to Los Angeles and the movie would be good to go.
Tango & Cash
It was pretty shocking for a lot of avid movie lovers that a franchise did not come out of this movie. The star of the movie, Kurt Russell still remains in beast mode, having recently appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (which is itself a sequel) and the Fast and Furious franchise that never seems to end.
With Sylvester Stallone having resurrected his career more than once visiting old characters, we hope he can be talked into making a sequel for this movie.
Dude, Where’s My Car?
Ol’ Stifler was at his comic best with Ashton Kutcher who had as much comic skill. While the movie was absurd, it had a lot of things that made viewers loved it. More so, Jennifer Garner had her first big chance to show the world that her acting skills are not limited to being an action hero alone.
