New York Competition No. 4: Sub-Sequels

By

Welcome back to the new New York Magazine Competition. The best of last week's submissions, including the winner, appear below this week's call for entries. It's easy to play: On Monday mornings, we'll lay out a challenge and offer a few sample responses. Give it your best shot in the comments below, or on Twitter with the hashtag we've provided, and on Friday the editors will select three winners. Criteria are highly subjective, but heavily retweeted and favorited posts will have an advantage. The prize is a year's subscription to New York in print or a two-year subscription for the iPad edition (winner's choice). Full rules are here.

COMPETITION NO. 4: SUB-SEQUELS. Please submit the title of a follow-up film, TV show, or similar product expressing diminished ambition. For example:

DJANGO, DOING PRETTY OKAY OUT ON HIS OWN

TINIER FURNITURE

LAW & ORDER: TRAFFIC DIVISION

Post your submission in the comments below, or on Twitter with the hashtag #subsequels.
