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 ...

Top 10 favorite movies of all time. Every time it's on TV I watch over and over again. Love this movie. Maybe he is just getting a little fussy as he gets older? Or maybe it was such a huge undertaking to make the movie that he remembers only the bad things about the production?

I always considered Parts I and II to be one movie divided into two parts (hence the title!). Coppola's big mistake was making Part III, which was a monumental disaster IMO. Next he'll probably come out with a Godfather Special Edition with all the guns digitally replaced with radios ... Have you no shame, Francis?

Godfather II was and still remains my favorite film of the three. The Third was a total rambling wreck. So ill conceived it taints the whole story line.
