9. ‘Making the Grade’ (1984) — Sequels That Never Happened

Subscribe to TheFW on

This Prince-and-the-Pauper movie follows a prep school snob (Palmer Woodrow the III) trading places with a street kid (Eddie, played by Judd Nelson). Hilarity ensues with plenty of belching, breakdancing and a standout performance by then-unknown Andrew “Dice” Clay. During the closing credits, viewers are informed that Palmer and Eddie will be back in ‘Tourista.’  But the poor box office killed the sequel and the closest we’ve come to ‘Tourista’ is the 2008 backpacker horror film ‘Turistas.’
