Sequels are nothing new to Hollywood, although it may seem like there are a lot more of them lately. Oftentimes it seems like a completely useless endeavor and honestly comes off like a cash grab. 

There are hundreds of sequels to Hollywood hits that should never have been made... but can you define them as "unnecessary?"

Click through and see our slideshow of 11 completely and utterly unnecessary sequels. 

1. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
We adore Spielberg. We adore Lucas. We adore Ford. But what was this fourth film in the Indiana Jones franchise? Aliens? In an Indiana Jones movie?!

2. Speed 2: Cruise Control

Speed 2: Cruise Control
Keanu Reeves proved to be the wisest of people when he passed on a sequel to Speed. We adore Sandra Bullock, but she should have put the breaks on this one.

3. Basic Instinct 2

Basic Instinct 2
Sharon Stone came back. Michael Douglas did not. Stone went to England. People mysteriously died. Sex scenes ensued. Simply... why?

4. Blair Witch 2

Blair Witch 2
When a movie is lightning in a bottle, like Blair Witch was, there is no way to recapture magic. Yet, they tried with Blair Witch 2, even gave it a subtitle of Book of Shadows.

5. Caddyshack II

Caddyshack II
Just because you use Roman numerals in the title, doesn't save it from being horrible. Chevy Chase came back for this sequel to a classic and managed to tinge that film's legacy in the process.

6. Dumb and Dumberer

Dumb and Dumberer
A Dumb and Dumber sequel? Yes, please! Make it a prequel and cast actors other than Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels? No, thank you.
