Did you ask for the Dumb and Dumber sequel, Dumb and Dumber To? Because we certainly didn’t. 20 years after the comedy classic was released, it seems unlikely that anyone was actually thinking, “You know what would be great? Another one!” let alone saying it out loud. Sometimes, it’s better just to let great things be. Dumb and Dumber To might make us cringe for many reasons — the name, the jokes — but let’s not forget the many terrible movie sequels that have come and gone, which we never asked for in the first place. All of them butcher the legacy of great movies with their subpar stories and tired catchphrases. Not every movie can be as wonderfully self-aware as 22 Jump Street, nor can every sequel be Terminator 2 — widely regarded as better than its predecessor. The movies we’re looking at are the ones we never wanted, and ones that failed to do the originals the justice they deserved. From the offensive Sex and the City 2 to the cringeworthy Son of the Mask, these are the sequels we always knew we never wanted.
It’s fair to say Anchorman 2 didn’t live up to the hype of the first film. Maybe it would have been better if the cast could weigh in on current news?
