I STILL Know What you Did Last Summer
(By Gerry Wang)

(Jennifer Love Hewitt, Brandy, Mekhi Phifer)

_____Did you ever watch a movie that you know is bad, that you know critics will universally trash, and you act politically correct by saying it sucked? Yet you enjoyed it deep down inside. For me I STILL KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER was one such guilty pleasure. It definitely was a satisfactory sequel.

_____It picks up where I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER left off. Jennifer Love Hewitt (I don't remember her character's name. Shows how much this movie deeply moved me, huh? Oh wait, it was Julie.) is feeling guilty over her having killed Ben Willis. Or did she. Anyways, she still feels guilty, and she has nightmares and horrifying flashbacks about her ordeal a year ago. We don't care. She just looks so damn fine that her words go in one ear and out the other.

_____That's one thing I loved about this movie. I STILL KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER has plenty of gratuitous Jennifer Love Hewitt-cleavage shots. I mean, it's so obvious. They have her bending over and showing off her breasts, they have her robe soaked so you can see nipple, they have her wearing a bikini in a self-tanning machine. It's fantastic. That's one of the problems I had w/ this recent influx of horror movies. Gone is the unwarranted nudity. The trend is to have teenagers doing stupid things and saying really hard vocabulary words. Sheesh.

_____Back to the plot, Julie and her roommate Brandy win a trip to the Bahamas. So they go, and they invite a friend each. Julie wants her boyfriend Ray to go, but he has to work. So she asks Will, an admirer to go. Brandy brings her horny-ass boyfriend Mekhi Phifer, in a hilarious role. He and Brandy lightened up the morose mood w/ their ebonic porno talk. Funny stuff!

_____Well, they're at the Bahamas, and then the fish hook-slashing murders begin again. Seems like there's a murderer on the loose, and he/she wants Julie. And alas! There is a terrible storm while the group is at the Bahamas. What a coincidence!

_____So the rest of the movie is just a slash-fest, and there are some nice scares and thrills. And look for something. Notice how Brandy's ass is so humongous. Oh my goodness. It took up the whole frame. I swear. She got back. Major back.

_____So go watch this movie. It's got cheap scares and it shows off plenty of Jennifer Love Hewitt's body. Plus the plot doesn't make absolutely no sense like other sequels. It was much easier to comprehend that I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER. I sure missed Sarah Michelle Gellar though. Buffy and Jennifer Love Hewitt was an awesome combination.

_____Oh yeah, I wanna brag about something. "What is the capital of Brazil" was the question Brandy and Julie had to answer to win the trip. I just wanna say I got it CORRECT the first time. Heh heh. Carmen Sandiego baby.
