The best film with the worst sequel. What are they?

Share your disappointment. After all, it is DL and time to think about family.

Legally Blonde.

The sequel with Sally Field was pure shit. Reese really just coming for the cheque.

After a particularly stressful week of work and doomscrolling, I made the delightful mistake of watching Legally Blonde 2. Oh man, what a piece of shit! It had none of the charm of the first film, and each scene was cringier than the last. The intern cheerleading scene must be seen to be believed...

That said, I would add Basic Instinct 2 to the list. The first one wasn't high art, but it was fun, well-acted, and riveting. The sequel was just embarrassing.

The Exorcist has to win this one. Exorcist II is a fascinating misfire on almost every level but the music score. Ennio Morricone composed a beautiful score for that film. A shame it wasn't attached to a better film.

I like Jaws 2. It's well directed and paced. Good action.

Just Donna Wilkes and her endless screaming is the film's weak links. Somebody should have slapped that bitch.

Staying Alive is a horrible sequel to Saturday Night Fever. They'd have been smarter just eliminating any reference to the original film and having Travolta play someone totally different. Either that or make it a story where Tony realizes he's actually gay and that's why he always did all that dumb macho shit in the original film.

I know the original is not exactly considered high art, but Nightmare on Elm Street had a fascinating, well-intended and profoundly disappointing sequel (that is still worth watching for the gay subtext).

R60, aww, I kind of liked the Fright Night sequel. Pure 80s cheese and preserved the gay subtext.

R59, Nightmare on Elm Street was odd in that some of the subsequent sequels were in fact very good (although none of them were as terrifying as the original).
