I'm kind of excited there is going to be a sequel. Romy & Michele are blaming Disney for the delay, which I find just as entertaining as the actual thought of a sequel. Stupid movies are big business. Why do studios have such a hard time with this?
I mean, need we look any further than Sharknado 2 trending number one last night? No one thought they were tuning into Shakespeare. We knew we were watching a cheesy movie where sharks were going to fly through the sky and munch on innocent bystanders. Not a difficult concept. The bad acting only makes it that much more enjoyable. Ian Zierling has left The Peach Pit behind and morphed into William Shatner doling out survival advice from the top of a truck while wielding a chainsaw. How great is that?
The cameos were the best part of the movie, naturally. My favorite being the pilot in the opening sequence. Robert Hays, from another classic, stupid movie -- Airplane! Although I did love the very subtle product placement from Subway and Jarod. Loved one Tweet I read last night about the suspension of belief for the movie. "They almost had me until they expected me to believe Billie Ray Cyrus was a doctor." LOL
I've been working up a storm so last night's Sharknado was a welcome break. So have you seen Romy & Michele? Will you see the sequel? And more importantly, will you admit to watching Sharknado 2? Sadly, I saw the original too and we laughed. Actually got an ice cream cake for last night's event.
