There is a preconceived notion that sequels are never as good as the original movie. While that may usually be the case, there are a select few comedy sequels that might actually be better than the originals. 

It may sound completely blasphemous to even think that National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation is funnier than National Lampoon's Vacation. But one can surely make a case that Clark Griswold’s Christmas decorations and overall bumbling-idiot sweetness are funnier in Christmas Vacation. Perhaps it should at least be considered that Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me generates more laughs than the original Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery.

Vote up all the sequels you think are funnier than the original.
