This Disney Channel movie deserves to get sacked for a loss.
The problem with sequels is that unless there is a continuing storyline or a series of books or comics to back up the films, a rehash is often the best they come up with because the only thing they care about is that it succeeds the same way as the first movie. But sequels are only going to work if there is a good reason to make them. If there were loose ends from the first movie that can be worked with, or if they can do better than they did with the first film like with Star Trek II, then there is opportunity for a sequel as long as there is a good story to write. But if it’s all about cashing in and the end result is pale, then the movie studio only has itself to blame for giving in to the belief that people didn’t get enough when in truth they had already been pleased the first time. In other words, they shouldn’t look just at the numbers, they have to look at why and only then do they know what is necessary.
I thought that it was great that you put in a Heidi reference. Since today is the anniversary of the Heidi game.
Re: the Miramax joke. The funny thing is Miramax actually did have a family films division. Of course, they released films like The Neverending Story III and the butchered version of The Thief and the Cobbler, so…yeah, it’s conceivable that they could have made this movie!
I do recall something like that. It was surprising to learn that the Weinsteins actually produced the David the Gnome animated series.
when u said joke used in piece of crap web comic was that a reference to somehting specficially i didnt get it
Seeing those laughable effects of the football players being led by their noses like they were on wires reminds me of something I saw about four or five years ago when Lewis Hamilton who then the youngest ever Formula One World Champion (and was just beginning to enter his insufferable prat stage) made a cameo appearance in an east end london play where he was literally worked like a marionette and then got pulled around the stage and into the air on wires.
The only thing was he was fully dressed in his McLaren race suit and crash helmet and he just looked stupid.
Actually, Angels in the Endzone premiered on ABC’s The Wonderful World of Disney block. Original movies made for that program had a habit of showing up on Disney Channel frequently.
Still, that doesn’t excuse the movie itself.
