I believe that a sequel to its a wonderful life would be a flop. The movie is a masterpiece ond can't be touched.

Paramount could never make a sequel to "It's a wonderful life". Rarely does a good movie come out of Hollywood now, and when they try to do a sequel of a classic they release a bummer. In the movie it's a wonderful life, who would play good or the angels. We are an amoral society now. It's a wonderful life is to good of a movie to redo in todays substandard ethics.

Sequels seldom if ever come even close to the quality of the originals. A bad Idea and they should stop it. There is no story they could come up with worthy of being called a sequel.

It's a Wonderful Life is a wonderful movie. Please don't try to remake it. Some movies like Willy Wonka should be left alone. They did make a movie with Marlo Thomas years ago, she was George Bailey's character. It was a TV movie, however it wasn't not as good as the original.

I have just one question, how long are we the citizens of this country going to allow this travesty of justice to prevail in this country. Referring to the Florida senator who plead guilty to possession of cocaine, getting 1 years probation and then go back to business as usual while many thousands of other people who plead guilty to the same offense get years, sometimes life for the same crime, how long people?

Please keep this beloved movie a classic by not remaking it or forwarding the story into another time period. It is an period piece that has set its mark on our hearts forever. Don't spoil it by attaching some poorly written and directed movie to extend story line. Some things are better left alone, and in the movie industry sequels have not a had a great deal of success.
