No matter how much we love movie sequels, a franchise isn’t always the answer. When a follow-up to a smash hit is bad, they can butcher the legacy of a great movie with their subpar stories and tired catchphrases. Not every movie can be as wonderfully self-aware as 22 Jump Street, nor can every sequel be Terminator 2 — widely regarded as better than its predecessor. The movies we’re looking at are the ones we never wanted, and ones that failed to do the originals the justice they deserved. From the offensive Sex and the City 2 to the cringeworthy Son of the Mask, these are the sequels we always knew we never wanted.

It’s fair to say Anchorman 2 didn’t live up to the hype of the first film. Maybe it would have been better if the cast could weigh in on current news?
