10 ‘90s Comedies That Really Need Sequels

HALF BAKED, Jim Breuer, David Chappelle, Guillermo Diaz, 1998

Posted by on

The 1990s were a fertile time for cinematic comedy, with lots of exciting new voices being heard for the first time. The decade saw plenty of sequels, but these 10 movies were shamefully passed over.

10. Living In Oblivion

Tom DiCillo’s vicious skewering of the independent film world is a cult classic, and a sequel would have been just as good.


9. Nothing But Trouble

I might be the only person on Earth who liked this 1991 oddity – star Dan Aykroyd refuses to even discuss it – but a sequel would have been unforgettable.


8. Airheads

Easily Brendan Fraser’s best movie, this hard rock hostage comedy had great characters that could have supported another flick.


7. Fear of a Black Hat

This hip-hop mockumentary came out in 1993, but the world of rap music changed enough in the interim that a sequel would be awesome.


6. Dazed and Confused

Richard Linklater has shown that he’s willing to revisit characters across multiple movies, so why not go back to the 70s retro flick that made him famous?

5. Stay Tuned

This semi-obscure John Ritter vehicle about a husband and wife trapped in a Satanic netherworld of TV show parodies certainly could have produced a second installment. Sadly, Ritter passed away in 2003, so this one will always be a pipe dream.


4. Very Bad Things

Peter Berg’s 1998 black comedy starts with the accidental death of a hooker and then just gets darker and crazier from there, and while most of the cast ends up dead or crippled a prequel could have worked.


3. Kingpin

It’s a crime that the Farrelly Brothers gave us a Dumb & Dumber sequel but not a follow-up to this incredibly gross bowling farce.


2. Office Space

Mike Judge’s career has taken him between movies and TV for the last few decades, but Office Space still stands as his crowning achievement.


1. Half Baked

Possibly the best stoner comedy of all time, star Dave Chappelle went on to bigger and better things but we’d love to see him play Thurgood Jenkins one more time.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
