I just don't see any way to make the story make sense 25 years later. Not going to kid myself though, I'd watch it opening night.

If Adam Sandler is in the movie, it is a definite no.

Leave it alone. Nothing good comes with a recreate or a #2 many many years later... just look at How far Rambo fell after they left it alone for many years... or what will be of Top Gun #2...

Leave it alone, please.

Lol who cares if it’s bad. It doesn’t change anything about the original. They are completely separate entities. Doubling down that I’d love to see it made now :LOL:

Great point! It doesn't make the original bad. I will watch it.

No, we've already had to deal with Super Troopers 2, Boondock Saints 2, Caddyshack 2, etc. Unless the story is written with a sequel in mind, they rarely do the original justice.

Generally speaking comedy sequels do not work well. So I voted no.

I think this is one that would have a bit hire success rate.

Ghostbusters is another one that comes to mind, as far as long past due sequels. That reboot a couple years ago was a festering turd of a film.

The idea of the Senior Tour feels like it could be funny. I'd be all in.

High chance it would be awful and equally high chance I would love it regardless. Creative folks came develop a good story line, and maybe we'd get a Phil cameo about hitting bombs on the senior circuit. I'm all in!

Would be hard to be as good as the original with its classic scenes and classic lines. But if they do and somehow manage to pull a Godfather 2 and its great and there are more memorable classic scenes and lines that would be fantastic. Thinking about it i hope they do. Whats the worst that can happen, it wont be great, but if it is ......

I think it could be funny if two "grumpy old men" are forced to team up in a tournament of some sort. Not sure how that would play out in a golf match.

A friend of mine has an RV Dealership and for Bills games he hosts a tailgate party ( some of the greatest ever) and Christopher Mcdonald who plays Shooter McGavin has been to some . Seems like a pretty good guy. Here he is with a couple Hall of Famers.8DD95F60-77D7-4B85-8C25-BDC43CA1AC56.jpeg

No. The first one was terrible, can't imagine how bad a sequel would be.
