I thought it was a Poseidon adventure sequel


Glad to have found it anyway.

There *was* a sequel to The Poseidon Adventure.

Fun, but it's not a movie that one would call...umm...good. Silly plot. Hammy acting. Bad special effects. But I love every second of it!

Yeah it's funny when they all climb in through the Hull it's like lets have a laugh with this I don't think it was intended to be a proper sequel.It was just a cash in like Jaws 2 was although Jaws 2 was pretty decent.

I liked Jaws 2 a lot. Of course Jaws is amazing...like cake or sex in celluloid. But Jaws 2 is fun.

For that matter, I like BTPA. Even though it's stupid and tacky. I mean, who wanders into a steamroom for refuge!? Who goes INTO a sinking ship? Why aren't there any barnacles or rust on the underside of a ship that was on its way to the breakers? How can a man who was so in love with his wife decide to marry some random nurse within minutes of his wife dying?!

I didnt like Return to the Poseidon Adventure at all! It snubs it's nose at the first movie where Gene Hackman, Shelley Winters and Ernest Borgnine were struggling to bug out! ...Well, here comes Telly Sivalis casually going back into the sinking bucket. In my list of films that should not have been made, Poseidon 2 is in their somewhere.

...Then there was Titanic 2... whoo boy! Don't get me started on THAT flop!
