What Movie Sequel Would You Un-Make?

On Fridays, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. This week, we're doing something a little different. I'm granting you three wishes! Probably not wishes you'd actually make, but you shouldn't look a wish-granting horse in the mouth.

1. Congratulations! I've secured for you a lucrative job in the vending machine placement business. In order to keep this job, however, you must stock your machines with things you've never seen in vending machines before, and people must actually buy them. What will be in your first machine?

2. You can now un-make any sequel in movie history. After your wish, it will be like the movie never happened. What would you choose, and why? (Simply because it was bad? Because there should have been a better sequel? Because someone's career was ruined?)

3. This last wish is optional. You have the power to lock-in your current weight for life. You can eat whatever you want and you won't gain another pound. But you can never hope to lose any weight, either. Would you go for it?

4. We'll stick with the regular fourth question. If you've got something to ask the group, use this slot. Or if you have a question suggestion for me, fire it over via Twitter @EnglishJason. Enjoy the weekend!
