The Sequel Turned Out To Be Rather Stale And Forgettable
19 November 2013 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

Sequels are a dangerous game. Not all 2nd parts work better. There are some great exceptions - Terminator 2 or Aliens. Or Asterix and Obelix And Cleopatra Mission. Here is a very weird sequel to All You Need Is Cash of 1978. Well, this is not a sequel proper. This is not a remake or rework. A rip-off? A repetition, more precisely. Eric Idle is older, and he repeats himself. All the same predictable Monty Python gags and skits are here galore. Do they work? I'd vote, nope. They became stake, vapid and tasteless. Untasty. Taste less. That is so. There is No new dimension to the Rutles story line. Old footage, deleted scenes and additional moments are added, yes. Several famous people are added. Several songs are added. Yet, it does not convince. It leaves me stunned to some extent. And sad. Such a great film, as an original was, got such a stale sequel. Not necessary at all, and not that funny.
