The Lyrics

Sometimes you see a movie that was completely and totally horrible, only to find out that they've green-lit a sequel for some stupid reason. This is a lyrical reaction to that.
Boy, this movie is real shitty
The actors are on drugs
Some are on speed and some on weed
Either way, it sucks
Heard that somehow it cost a fortune
Where it all went, I can't find
Cause the CG work is lame
Worse than Playstation 1 games

Not shock that it recouped
Only half the budget, true
Too many subplots, and yet
Could swear that it was plotless
Wasted money on this flick
No-one else I know liked it
So you'll understand why
I flipped out at this site

Saying that they've green-lit a sequel
Makes no damn sense to me
Just like the film itself, you see
I don't get why they'd make a sequel
Are they desp'rate for money?
They'd make more selling bootleg DVD's

Ev'ryone said this was bad
There's no profit to be had
In making sequels to it
There's no way that one could fix
All the errors in there
Like the soundtrack, was the scorer
Mostly asleep when he wrote it?
Underwater when recorded?

There's no point in making a sequel
Loose plot-threads followed? Please
Just cause the film's plot was Swiss cheese
Doesn't mean one should make a sequel
And nobody cares, trust me
About the half-baked romance of the leads

The characters had less depth than tree bark
All of them dumb so the plot could roll
Along as slow as balls
I read the source material and it's fathoms more deep
Why did they hack it up, do they think I am three?

I know films are hard to make
Lots of things that can go wrong
But in this film, ev'ry one
Happened, would love to blame bongs
The director's such a hack
Executives? Total twats
Pulled a script from a skunk's arse
With symbolism forced too hard

Who in their right minds wants a sequel?
I want a reboot, please
With no returning crew, you see
I'm seeing no way that a sequel
Would fix all the suck with ease
May even make them worse, though I can't see
How that could happen, so please
Stop them before they kill the industry
With their utter hackery
Nothing they make would be something I'd see

But if they go and make a sequel
It's quite possible I might
Go ahead and stand in line
And watch their trainwreck of a sequel
What, are you kidding me?
I'll stream so I won't give them my money

Feel free to assume that this was about any particular movie you don't like because I didn't base this around any particular film...though if I did, it'd probably be Fant4stic.

As a film school graduate and overall movie buff I really liked this one and I too am surprised that they keep churning out sequel after sequel but I guess its easier than coming up with their own ideas...

(Artistry) I'm also a huge movie buff and #1 rule in the biz is money talks. It doesn't matter how bad the film is, if it makes a lot of cash, you better believe a sequel's coming. They'll churn that stuff out until no one will pay to see another. Kind of messed up, I know, but business is business. Totally share your sentiments here. Very relatable. Good work. Security code is "YLA", which is exactly the question this song is asking. Lol!

Overall, not bad. I rarely go to the movies these days, for two reasons: 1. I don't want to spend half a paycheck to go, and 2. I'm not a big fan of superhero movies and the 47 spinoffs that come from the Marvel and DC Universes. I can definitely appreciate this spoof, I'll wait for the next original Hollywood idea...whenever that is.
