Hollywood is riddled with them.
Sequels we never wanted or asked for. There are many reasons they get made but most of them are money or ego. Either way here's a list off the tops of our heads of some stinkers that never should have seen the light of day.
Taken 2: If you're like me the whole time you were watching the first movie you were thinking "I wonder what the parents of all the poor mobsters who are dying would think." Oh, you didn't think that? Well, some writer apparently did.
Jaws 3: If the years go by but the technology for the shark gets worse it's a bad sign. And a crappy looking shark looks even crappier in 3D.
Caddyshack 2: No Ted Knight, no Bill Murray meant this never should have been made. Ask the average person and they don't even know this film exists.
Speed 2: Cruise Control: It's okay to admit you caught lightning in a bottle with the first movie and sometimes sequels in which the main star doesn't return can succeed....but on a cruise ship? Honestly.
Alien 3: Hey David Fincher, all that cool stuff that Ridley Scott and James Cameron did with the first two Alien movies - yeah you just ruined it.
Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon: Essentially Michael Bay's excuse to blow up more stuff and shoot things in slow motion. Forget about the minor details of plot and acting.
Weekend at Bernie's II: Wait, he's still dead and they haven't buried him yet? Yeeech.
US Marshals: Sadly, on its own it isn't a terrible movie. But it isn't The Fugitive and Wesley Snipes sure as heck isn't Harrison Ford.
Dumb and Dumberer: Even Cheri O'Teri, Eugene Levy and Bob Sagat couldn't save this horrible prequel that only made us watch the original to wash that crappy taste away.
Terminator 3: Arnie, man you should have known better. James Cameron was the Terminator franchise and without him on board this one didn't have a chance.
*So, here's a few we wish would've stayed in the can - have a few you wish were never made? Let us know in the comments section.
