To every hit there is a season, and a time for every sequel under heaven -- no matter what narrative contortions it takes. Take THE FUGITIVE: Once runaway Dr. Kimble (Harrison Ford) is cleared of murdering his wife, it's hard to imagine sending him on the lam
again. But then...(cue the lightbulb over someone's head), if it was the chase
audiences liked, then why not build the sequel around implacable U.S. Marshall Sam Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones), who nearly hunted the good doctor to his death? He can chase people into the next century.
hey: The good Terminator thing worked, and FRIDAY THE 13TH director Sean Cunningham is still living down his opinion...
