List Rules Vote up the worst movie sequel titles

List of the worst movie sequel titles ever greenlighted by studios, ranked from greatest to dumbest. Lamest to just lame? We don't know. Since the first time a production company realized it could capitalize on the success of a movie by making a second, worse movie, sequels have been given terrible names. Here's a fact for you: The first movie sequel ever made was a follow-up to the 1915 silent film The Birth of a Nation, called - aptly - The Fall of a Nation. That's true. Go look it up. But the point is: movie sequels have had dumb names since the beginning of time.

The 10 Most Unfairly Crapped On Movie Sequels

It's not even that the movies are bad, necessarily. We all know you own A Very Brady Sequel, and we don't even want to think about a world where no one owned a soundtrack called Electric Boogaloo. Some are stinkers, sure. But most importantly, sequels have the most awful and hilarious titles. Especially horror movies. Gingerdead Man 2: Passion of the Crust? Come on! That's brilliant.

So what's your favorite movie sequel title? Vote up those ridiculous titles that you think are funny or silly or super clever, and vote down the lame ones that feel like TPTB were really just dialing it in. And add any that we missed, please! And tell us which is better: Carly's Angels: Full Throttle or City Slickers II: The Legend of Carly's Gold? Need to know.
