The Top 5 Reasons there hasn’t been a sequel to The Last Boy Scout

I was sitting in bed last night trying to figure out some excuse for not writing as I flipped through the 555 useless channels provided by DirecTV. To my dismay nothing was on at 1:30 on a Tuesday morning. You might think this was a sign that I should buckle down and start writing. You would be wrong. Instead I flipped through my trusty Tivo in search of diversion. There are a bunch of great movies on there that I want to see but, again it's 1:30 in the morning and unless I'm getting drunk I need to be asleep soon so I can be on time to work (in before noon). As I'm scrolling through the list I settle on The Last Boy Scout, perfect! I've seen it a million times, it's a great flick and I don't really have to pay attention.

So I'm into the movie enjoying Bruce Willis dish out left hooks and one-liners while Damon Wayans cheeses in the background when I start to wonder, why hasn't there been a sequel?

The Top 5 Reasons there hasn't been a sequel to The Last Boy Scout

1. Joe Hollenbeck (Willis) lost all credibility after he forgives his wife for cheating on him with his best friend; after she promises to buy a dog if she gets lonely again. It's hard to respect someone who can't keep order in his own house. How can you intimidate street toughs after a pathetic display like that? “Hey put that gun down before I hug you and threaten to spit in your face!

2. Damon Wayans is too busy with… and that other thing… and don't forget…

3. They killed off Halle Berry. Granted this wasn't in her prime Bond Girl Halle or even post-baby induced boob job Halle Berry. This was Halle Berry when she dressed like a Fly Girl from In Living Color. Still, who wants to watch a movie where they kill the hot love interest before she can get naked? This isn't a teen slasher flick it's an action movie damnit! We need T&A.

4. They already did a sequel; it's called Die Hard With a Vengeance.

5. They couldn't figure out a way to top this scene. It doesn't get any more bad ass than that.
