Update: With the debut of Vacation, the answer to National Lampoon's Vacation, we've got sequels on the brain. So, we're taking another look at second editions we we really didn't need.
This story was originally published on November 12, 2014:
Twenty years ago, Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne took a fateful trip to Aspen and decades later, Dumb and Dumber fans reached a point where they thought they were safe from ever seeing a sequel. Famous last words.
Dumb and Dumber To hits theaters November 1 and, naturally, fans have mixed feelings about it. Sure, the second installment will probably be funny. But, doesn't a part two kind of mess with the sanctity of the first? Now feels like an important time to discuss the plethora of second — or third — chapters that just didn't cut it. Ahead, movie sequels we could have lived without.
