Reel Film Reviews of the most underwhelming sequels in cinematic history.

Fantastica Daily

Doesn't have as many big laughs as the classic 1981 original, but the characters are still likable enough for this to merit a passing grade.

Widgett Walls

This film never happened. Don't ask me about it again.

It would have been better for Warners to have left well enough alone.

Y'know, I gotta side with the first Arthur movie, but this wasn't painful in any particular way.

Bob Bloom
Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

Another unnecessary sequel.

Steve Crum

Unnecessary sequel to now politically incorrect comedy of alcoholism. Great cast, however.

Alex Sandell
Juicy Cerebellum

Bad, bad sequel to an over-hyped original.

Bob Grimm
Las Vegas Mercury

A candidate for all time worst sequel.

Not all that great. It tries really hard to capture the magic of the first one but really doesn't make it.
Dean King
A ok film with some funny moments.
