Question of the Day #370

Big Tom entered the pub last night and H and I jumped up for big hugs. Noticing the bluesy song the guitarist played, he spun me out in a dance move then pulled me in.

"Where've you been tonight?" I asked.

"I went to see Men Who Stare at Goats." He twirled me around the bar. That man can make anyone look like she can dance.

"How was it?" H asked.

"Save yourself the cash and just watch the trailer a couple times." He dipped me. I almost fell over and decided to sit down.

"What was wrong with it?" H asked.

"Nothing. I just want to be entertained. There are so many great movies I'd rather see sequels to."

"Like what?" I asked.

"Like Howard the Duck." Tom sipped his beer.

"Huh?" I eyed Big Tom.

"Howard the Duck II. That would be a great movie. Or Short Circuit IIII."

I looked at H. She looked like she was following Big Tom. Had she seen the originals? And Short Circuit IIII? Should there be any film with a "IIII" after it?

"Or Earth Girls Are Easy," said Tom.

"That was hilarious. Remember how they shaved down the fur?" H giggled.

"These are your picks? These are the movies you want to see sequels to?" I asked.

"Yes!" Tom exclaimed and stared at me like I was a nutty person for asking.

Am I nutty? I put it out to you. What movies would you like to sequels to?



  1. Hmm, good question Suzy... I mean most movie sequels suck! I am hoping that Sex in the City 2 is as good as the first. Those ladies are great role models for us older gals!

  2. And BTW, yes, you are a little nutty!

  3. Funny! Another Old School would be fun!

  4. I second the request for Howard the Duck II !!!
    The movie is hilarious. We watched it when my now grown sons were small. Sons thought it funny for a whole different set of reasons than we did.

  5. Weekend at Bernie's...XII? I lost count. :)

  6. Can we please put an end to the Jason/Freddie Halloween nightmares they keep spewing out? Sequels are hard - you don't want to tarnish the reputation of a movie that was orginally good. Good selection Kelly, another Old School would be cool! Or more of something with Brad Pitt sans shirt, a la Fight Club or Legends of the Fall.

  7. That was hilarious!!! What the h... are you all talking about?
    I want a sequel to " a Night to Remember", "Gone with the Wind" and a "Touch of Mink". Those of us who remember these !!!! please reply :)
    I also would love anything about a sequel to "Beauty and the Beast"

  8. Funny Farm
    The Burbs

    And, a Vacation RV movie with Chevy Chase. The one Robin Williams did sucked.

  9. I can't think anything! I'll have to steal from everyone else. I vote for Old School and Beauty and the Beast! Maybe a spin off from the Sound of Music? Ya know, maybe Liesl & Rolfe find the way back to one another and they have their own crew of singing children. I don't know. That's all I've got right now.

  10. I thought Earth girls are easy was a hoot. I really hate it when they make a sequel to something that wasn't that good in the first place. How about Rocky 200 where he battles the alien boxers?

  11. Field of Dreams, yes and put back that Miami Vice remake of the TV show. Not good.
