Today's sequel is a real...something.  Sometimes there are movies that absolutely don't warrant a sequel, and if they were to get one, it certainly shouldn't be a spinoff.  Ugh.  This is 2002's American Psycho II: All American Girl.

Rachael Newman has developed an interest for murders after she encountered psychopath Patrick Bateman. To further study the subject, she enrolls at the university department for Behavioural and Social Sciences, under the expert leadership of former FBI agent Robert Starkman. Very certain about herself, Rachael has one single goal: to become class assistant. It's a prestigious job as having that position will almost guarantee employment at the FBI. But becoming class assistant is no easy task to accomplish, as the first trouble arises when secretary Gerty Fleck decides she is too young for it. And Gerty Fleck won't be the only obstacle.

My thoughts:
I never was on board with this sequel.  But, ugh, I can't believe I'm saying this: I developed a fondness for the film --

Also, here's a sweet article from about what APII could've (and should've) been (which really explains my new-found love for the film).
