The Vicky from the remake is the same woman as from the original.
It's not just a Mythology Gag
that she's played by the same actress and has the same name. After losing Mitch to his ex-wife, Vicky marries another man and has Meredith. She encourages her daughter to be a Gold Digger
too only to have her lose her meal ticket in the same way.
- What are the odds that a mother and daughter would go through the same ordeal with a potential husband and his split-apart/recently reunited twins?!
- The family is cursed. Plus, it wouldn't be the first sequel to repeat the plot from the first film in a contrived way.
- They are the same woman. Same actress, at least.
