Did anyone ever see the sequel made for "The Graduate" some 20 years after the first one's release? Or "Texasville" a sequel to "Last Picture Show"--another 20+year sequel?
As much as I enjoyed "PiP," if you're not going to do a sequel relatively soon after the first one, I think you're buying into a failed bit. Ironically, James Spader is the "big star" from that cast currently. Who would have picked that 20 years ago?
