Cocoon: the Return

As most sequels are, "Cocoon: the Return," is not nearly as good as the predecessor, but there are several things about this film that makes it worth watching. Firstly, while the plot certainly isn't the most creative thing I've ever seen, it's still emotionally evoking. Secondly, and most importantly of all, is the cast consisting of such noteworthy actors as Don Ameche, Wilford Brimley, Jack Gilford, Steve Guttenberg, Maureen Stapleton, and Jessica Tandy. I won't endorse this film, but if you enjoyed the original "Cocoon," then you may want to see this sequel.
