    How do you solve a problem like a sequel?
    How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?

    The Mother Superior might not enjoy the blasphemies intrinsic to the Godfather films, but even she'd have to admire the seamless transition between the beloved original and its arguably more acclaimed follow-up.
