Pulling the Plug on Booglaoo
Bunsen has a terrific take on why we must all retire the "[INSERT MOVIE TITLE HERE] 2: Electric Booglaoo" joke used for so many years and for such great comedic effect as shorthand for a lame sequel. To illustrate, he includes the following list of Other Unfortunate Sequel Titles utilizing "Electric Boogaloo" as a Punchline:
--Judgment at Nuremberg 2: Electric Boogaloo
--2 Fast 2 Furious 2: Electric Booglaoo
--Krush Groove 2: Electric Boogaloo
--Female Genital Mutilation 2: Electric Booglaoo
--Schindler's List 2: Electric Boogaloo
--Gwen Stefani's Totally Trying to be an Actress 2: Electric Boogaloo
--Breakin' 3: Electric Boogaloo

As a replacement joke he suggests the "Die Hard" strategy of amplifying the title for the sequel ("Die Harder" or "Cold Mountain" becomes "Colder Mountain"), but I think a simple "On the Move" following the title in honor of the sequel to "Mannequin" might just do the trick.
