For some films, sequels doom a legacy. Hollywood has produced a rash of bad sequels over the years, and this is especially true in the contemporary era of film production. They will milk a franchise cash cow for all its worth, then beat the cow until it musters some more, even if it’s only the tiniest bit of cream. The following eight films are not good. Some are worse than others, but the selections are drawn from an algorithm wholly dependent on the original(s) being awesome, and the sequels – -or “prequels” in a singular case — laying the stank.
8. Teen Wolf Too
Did you ever wonder what happened to Jason Bateman after he enjoyed great television success in the 1980s, then promptly disappeared for a good 15 years? Teen Wolf Too happened. There’s no other reason someone as talented as Jason would bow out. The original Teen Wolf wasn’t a great film — fair enough, cynical critics — but it’s one of the greatest guilty pleasures of all-time. Any movie featuring a school with the mascot of a beaver in the 1980s is gonna win big. Two years after the huge, box-office success of Teen Wolf (thanks to Michael J. Fox), they made Teen Wolf Too. A sequel that follows the formula of the first film, but makes the werewolf (the cousin of Scott in Teen Wolf) a boxer instead of a basketball player. It is so bad, it’s barely watchable. The couple of laughs in the film are rooted in Jason Bateman charm.Source: Atlantic Films
