Francis Ford Coppola

There Should've Only Been

ONE 'Godfather' Movie

11/21/2011 8:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Godfather" director Francis Ford Coppola says "Part II" -- which many consider the greatest sequel of all time -- was a MISTAKE ... insisting, "There shoulda only been one."

Coppola was leaving Hemingway's Lounge in L.A. last night when we asked if he would ever pick up the Corleone storyline for another GF flick when he dropped the bombshell.

We agree about GF3 -- but TWO? Two was AWESOME -- with Al Pacino, De Niro ... the trip back to Italy -- C'MON!!!!

So, we gotta ask ...

GF #2 was BETTER than #1 in my opinion!

It's beyond my considerable imagination to see how part II could be considered better than the original.

I have to agree. Sequels are very rarely as good as the first. This happened to work. For the most part leave it alone.

I can't think of another movie sequal winning Oscars.

Francis, how about you give back all the money and all the awards you won for that movie and then we will ask you if you think it should be made. Idiot.

WOW! Considering your partner Fred Roos got an OSCAR for producing it and it's his company who has been involved with many of Francis and Sophia's movies, what a slap! Should Fred give the Oscar back or did you tell him he did a great job? Amazing ingratitude!

Godfather was a classic and one of my favorite films of all time, as was Godfather 2. However, G3 was horrid.

He may have meant the combined version (I & II) should have been the only one.

If Coppola thinks part II was a mistake,
it was a lucky one for all of us-
the best of all 3 Godfather movies
and one of the best movies ever made!
