“The Two Jakes”: movie review

Supposedly bad enough to warrant cancellation of any follow-up sequel, this itself is a sequel to 1974’s “Chinatown.” While the title of “Chinatown” is a bit of a lie, considering how little of the movie takes place in Chinatown, “The Two Jakes” is a little more honest because there are actually two characters named Jake in this movie.
Actually, it’s not a bad film at all, and probably just got panned because everyone was hoping for something as seminal as “Chinatown.” Don’t ever do anything great, because people will hate you if you do something pretty good afterwards, apparently.
