(Newser) – Movie sequels strive to be bigger and badder with each installment. Entertainment Weekly singles out 14 film franchises that should wrap up production—for good:

  1. The Mummy: Eight long years is enough.
  2. American Pie: Straight-to-DVD spinoffs drained the raunchy teen comedy of its fun.
  3. Bring It On: How many movies can you make about cheerleaders?

  1. Austin Powers: The spy-spoof schtick wears thin.
  2. Starship Troopers: The first was a cult classic, the rest just pests.
  3. Saw: One was enough to turn stomachs. Five is overkill.
  4. Indiana Jones: The ho-hum Crystal Skull proved this franchise is over the hill.
