Here are 5 movies that should NEVER, EVER get a sequel.
1. Ferris Bueller's Day On
We’ve all seen it, and even though some of us might be sick of it, deep down, we still love it for what it is. But the truth is no one would EVER want to see a Ferris Bueller sequel (heck, they didn't even want to see the short-lived TV series).
There’s no denying that Ferris is a charming guy, but if Edward Rooney taught us one thing, it’s that authority figures don’t all see Ferris in such a positive light. Chances are, Cameron was right: Ferris ends up a fry cook (and probably not on Venus). No one needs to see that.
2. The Breakfast Group Therapy
It’s scary to think what probably happened to those kids after that fateful day of detention. They all appear to accept the issues they have in the end, but there is no sign that they are taking steps to correct these problems. Andy doesn’t like the girl until she changes how she looks, Claire is clearly just trying to piss off her parents with John, and Brian has some serious emotional problems that he probably needs some professional help with. And what about poor Larry Lester? He didn’t get anything.
Principal Vernon seems to be moving up in the world though, as he moved on to be the Deputy Police Chief by the time Die Hard rolled around.
In addition to everyone thinking that he was kidnapped for the rest of his life, after returning home, Josh is certain to carry some emotional baggage as well. He had to leave his girlfriend, his incredible job, and his ridiculously awesome apartment, all in the name of childhood.
While this is definitely a worthwhile sacrifice, Josh may have gotten the wrong idea of what adult life is really like. He might have been able to get a promotion by playing in a toy store once, but twice might be hoping for a bit much.
4. The Seventh Sense
In addition to the fact that M. Night Shyamalan has pretty much seen his day, there are a number of reasons why they should never do a sequel for The Sixth Sense. Most significantly, their big reveal is done. We ALL know Bruce Willis was a ghost (whoops, spoilers).
Any attempt to make that sequel would inevitably just look like Ghostbusters…well…okay, maybe they SHOULD make this one then.
5. E.T.: The Revenge
Believe it or not, there were actually talks of doing a sequel to the classic film, E.T. Thankfully, the film was inevitably left untouched, preserving the childhoods of millions of moviegoers, because the results would have been disastrous.
After being poked, prodded, and chased by a bunch of human scientists, consider the likelihood that E.T. would return in peace. If there were to be a sequel, chances are that it would look a little like Independence Day.
