It's Time To Vent Which Movie Sequels Were Absolutely Unnecessary

Why did they have to go and ruin things?!?

Warning: this post may contain sequel spoilers.

Movie sequels... You either love 'em or hate 'em, seriously! Depending on the movie, a sequel can either elevate a movie series or make you wish you'd never watched the series entirely.


Every once in a while, the sequel improves upon the original. But this is rare, people!

We want to hear about which movies you think never should have had a sequel and why you feel that way.


It's got to be more than just the principle of the thing. We're talking: introducing new ridiculous characters, major plot holes, loss of originality, etc. Explain yourself, please!

Maybe you think that Home Alone 2: Lost in New York shouldn't have been made because it's just not original enough.

Twentieth Century-fox Film Corpo

Is it a little too "copy-and-paste" plot-wise from the first movie? Could Kevin's family really go through all of this again? We want to hear your thoughts!

Or maybe you thought Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again was a disgrace because they ~unnecessarily~ killed off Meryl Streep's character?

Universal Pictures

Mamma Mia! without Donna is like a PB&J without bread: the foundation that holds everything together is gone. The sequel without Meryl's charm and magnetism is a huge dissapointment.

Or perhaps you think that The Hangover should have never become a series because its predictability totally took the charm out of the original premise.

Warner Bros.

What was once hilariously new became repetitive and old?

Whatever the movie, we want to hear about which film should have never had a sequel and *explain why* the sequel didn't meet the mark. Leave us a comment below for your chance to be featured in a BuzzFeed Community post!

Thank you!
