A truly severe indictment on the state of contemporary culture. Remember when 5 films in a series was reserved for things like Bond films?

What kind of parent keeps buying these godawful films for their children? We've now successfully created a consumer-base dumb enough to allow Fast/Furious to continue pumping out movies. Kids that watched Earnest are probably the same teen-agers standing in line for...

American Pie (1999)


As if Van Wilder wasn't bad enough, American Pie has quickly become it's own brand... of absolute shit. Thanks America.

Cyborg (1989)


I can excuse the Bloodsport series; If I really stretch my imagination to its furthest limits I can start to understand how there might be some interest in those films from enough people to warrant multiple sequels. But Cyborg?! Are you serious?

Fucking talking babies. Leave it to Hollywood to figure out a way to make babies less appealing. Twice. What? Are you fucking kidding me? There's a THIRD one? Holy fucking hell.

There's just no possible justification for making three of these films...and I loved the first one. Mighty Ducks I get...kids are dumb, they'll watch anything. But Slap Shot? That hard R, vulgar Hockey comedy? No way.

Slap Shot was lucky to receive the cult status it got. Why couldn't they have just left it alone? 25 years after the original release, it would've appeared we were safe. Wrong. Attn Hollywood: Nobody even fucking likes hockey! Except me and my friends, but that doesn't mean we like shitty films.

I remember this franchise when it was called "Karate Kid". And those weren't as good as everyone likes to pretend, so why do we need all this garbage?

Enough to make you embarassed to be a U.S. citizen. And at least partly to blame for the ill-will felt toward law-enforcement officers by many in this country.

Somehow, someway, the fact that this is not a porn series is actually more discouraging.

There are truck-loads of bad movie-franchises out there. But the production of most can be justified in some form or another, by somebody, somewhere.

These however are simply inexcusable. I tried to narrow it down to the top 10 worst offenders, but, like too many of these franchises, the list wouldn't seem to end. So here they are: My Top 11 movie franchises that have utterly ignored the laws of supply and demand.

OMG, I really try to forget about all the the "Ernest" movies. I do confess that I have seen American Pie Band Camp and did enjoy the first "Bring It On" but really there is only so much stupidity I can take... Mmm... most of these are what imagin is playing in the Metroplex in Hell LOL ;)
Posted: 6 years, 10 months ago at Oct 20 8:27
Ha! Well said. And as for "Ernest" I was utterly shocked to learn that there are currently NINE of them. Good on you for fessing up to enjoying "Bring It On". Haven't seen it myself, but have heard some kind words about it from other reputable sources...but certainly nothing that would merit 4 sequels. Cheers!
Posted: 6 years, 10 months ago at Oct 20 12:59
great list haha it really is a miracle why those sequels are made a rather why even the first ones are made ô.o

those ernest movies are the worst xDD and what could possibly be done after the first two american pie movies...there was no real informative content anyways :P
Posted: 6 years, 10 months ago at Oct 20 17:36
great list, good question! ;)
Posted: 6 years, 10 months ago at Oct 20 21:40
I hate sequels. Even more if they are the sequels of bad movies.
Posted: 6 years, 10 months ago at Oct 21 0:12
to this day I still love Ernest goes to Camp. But all the other Ernest movies I hated. Still hate them.
Posted: 6 years, 10 months ago at Oct 21 8:58
The Ernest films (RIP Jim Varney) and Police Academy films are pure 80s silliness...either you dig them or you don't. They were OK then, but I wouldn't revisit any of them now. See also the first Look Who's Talking (DO NOT see either sequel though if you value your sanity).

And the 1st American Pie is a good movie, but the string of sequels could have stopped after the 2nd. (But then, expecting quality out of direct to DVD releases is expecting too much.)

The rest of your list I'm completely in agreement on, though I'd add to it that other line of dance movies (Step Up I think they're called?), The Land Before Time (another instance where the 1st was good & the sequels have spiraled out of control), and at this point the National Lampoon series could probably be tossed in the same boat (starting with Vegas Vacation up through whatever crap those words have been attached to since).
Posted: 6 years, 10 months ago at Oct 22 23:12
national Lampoon is more like a franchise than a series. In addition to the Vacation series they also had The Naked Gun, a sendup of the lethal weapon series and more recently, ugh, the Van Wilder series.

You've got a great point.
Posted: 6 years, 2 months ago at May 30 11:24
I agree.. Van Wilder & American Pie should be completely banned!

If they continue, by the time i grow to 25, they will have produced the 23rd installment of American Pie!
Posted: 5 years, 3 months ago at Apr 23 6:30
Bond films are 80% garbage as well, in my opinion. No better or worse than the garbage that is the F&F franchise.
Posted: 5 years, 3 months ago at Apr 23 7:42
I agree except Look Who's Talking and Police Academy. These films are beautiful memories of my childhood. Maybe they are not great movies, but I think that such harsh criticism was not necessary.
Posted: 5 years, 3 months ago at Apr 23 14:03
you missed "weekend and Barneys"
Posted: 4 years, 6 months ago at Jan 29 16:46
I would add the Medea sorry if I spelled that wrong and the Not Another movies. I do love the fast and furious movies except I will agree 2 Fast 2 Furious and Tokyo Drift were pretty bad. I enjoyed the first Bring it On, but the rest got way too silly. I have always hated the American Pie movies they just seem plain dumb and have immature humor.
