Jessica is a CARTOON-you weirdo.
One has to be severely autistic not to get that obvious reaction the filmmakers intended to get from their audience when the designed Jessica as a parody/caricature of a ubersexy seductress/Golden Era Hollywood actress.
Jaws are supposed to drop, eyes are supposed to become cemented on, and all conversation stopped when the character was introduced into the film. Even single cell asexual amoebas are supposed to get a gut/aesthetic reaction to her build and overly friendly personality.
BTW: The sequel doesn't have any encouraging information let alone a production status on its relevant IMDb page. For all we know, the whole concept would be scratched and never make it beyond even the planning stages considering how long it's taking between your wiki page's date of project conception and now.
Until the IMDb page is updated, I'll consider this project a delusional whim albeit a nice one considering I truly love the original film and can see great story possibilities for a sequel.
