In recent times, Hollywood has enjoyed going back into the 1990s to come up with belated sequels to previous hit movies. So, we finally got Dumb & Dumber 2, for instance, whilst a third Clerks, a second Mallrats, a new Sister Act and a Naked Gun reboot are being cooked up somewhere. Further belated sequels? Zoolander 2 finally arrives next year, and Anchorman 2 celebrates, quietly, its second birthday this Christmas.
It was only at the end of the 1990s that comedy sequels suddenly really took off. There were exceptions beforehand of course, but few things raise the eyebrows of Hollywood high brass than lots of cash. This, whilst the enormous box office takings of Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me were in part down to an utterly inspired marketing campaign,
First, what technically counts as a reboot? One school would say that anytime the cast shuffles, it’s a reboot, meaning we’re now on the second reboot (and third iteration) of Spider-Man films.

This review contains spoilers.
One of the more interesting aspects of this week's episode of American Horror Story is behind the camera, and I'm not talking about another great, demented script from Tim Minear. I'm talking about the presence of director Howard Deutch. The name won't be familiar, but for most people who grew up in the 80s, you know his movies.

He also did The Odd Couple II with Neil Simon (as well as The Replacements with Keanu Reeves), so he must be nothing but a comedy guy, right? Well, as seen in this episode, very wrong.
Deutch has a couple of episodes of
Screen Daily report that the actor is in talks to join Howard Deutch's "Wild Oats," which would see him reteam with his "Bernie" co-star Shirley MacLaine, as well as the great Alan Arkin and "Animal Kingdom" Oscar-nominee Jacki Weaver. The film stars MacLaine and Weaver as two best friends who leave their small Ohio town for Las Vegas after MacLaine's character accidentally receives
The question of what to name sequels is always an interesting one. There's just so many options to choose from. Do you go with the plain old number ("Lethal Weapon 2") or use a Roman numeral ("The Odd Couple II") for a touch of class? Should you add a "part" ("The Godfather Part II") to make it sound like the sequel was always intended as part of the plan? Should you spell out the number ("The Ring Two
In a debate with a group of fellow Seattle critics trying to decide if Get Him to the Greek was a sequel to Forgetting Sarah Marshall or not, the topic turned to comedy sequels in general and I was asked to name a great comedy sequel. Should be easy... right?
I started mining my memory banks, and started thinking of movies with
