    Lloyd: Um, Sea Bass and the fellas offered to pick up our check. They said just add this to their tab.

    Cashier: Sea Bass said that?

    Lloyd: Well, if that guy at the table over there is Sea Bass...

    From the comments:

    "Absolutely love the original, but this shows that Hollywood is out of ideas"

    No, they aren't out of ideas. There are more ideas than you can imagine, literally. What it shows is that it's a business, and it's far less risky producing a sequel to a movie that had a huge following than it is sinking dough into a new project, regardless of how fresh the idea is. The person who made that comment will be at the first showing on opening night.

    Yeah. This is obviously right, although I think there actually has been an increase in the number of interesting and risky movies over the last five years, which is probably in some part due to the relatively safe sequels that studios can bank on. The most surefire hit sequels there are, the easier it is for studios to budget riskier projects with the expectations that any potential losses can be made up with another Shrek movie. Inception seems to be a good example of a risky movie that was aided by the notority and financial success of Batman. In general, I expect a continuation of the trend in which notable directors balance cash cow series like James Bond with more interesting work.
