Tell the cops and mom that the babysitter’s dead
February 28th, 2024 under Stupid Sequels/Remakes. [ Comments: none ]

Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead has been a cult favorite since 1991. So you would think since it’s only been a third of the century since it came out that the movie studios would leave it alone. Well, you are wrong.

We are getting a reimagination of the film on April 12th. And it looks like such a stinker that it smells worse than the babysitter’s corpse.

Seventeen-year-old Tanya Crandell (Simone Joy Jones) can’t wait to spend the summer living it up with her friends in Spain before heading to Howard University in the fall. But when her mom (Ms. Pat) decides to head to a much-needed wellness retreat in Thailand, Tanya is forced to stay home with her three siblings instead. Following the unexpected death of their elderly babysitter (June Squibb), Tanya gets a job working for the confident and ambitious Rose (Nicole Richie). Juggling work, family, and a complicated romance, Tanya faces the responsibility of adulthood at the cost of her summer of freedom.

Are you going to hire a babysitter to go see it?


Leave Bewitched alone
February 14th, 2024 under Stupid Sequels/Remakes. [ Comments: none ]

If you thought that the Bewitched movie with Will Ferrell and Nicole Kidman was the worst thing to ever happen to the series, you might want to sit down.

Deadline is reporting that Sony is thinking about resurrecting Samatha Stevens and one of the Darrins.

I hope it stays in the development stage because you know they will make it all dark and depressing, like what The CW did to so many classics.

What happened to originality?


We don’t need a Girls Just Want to Have Fun remake
April 21st, 2023 under Stupid Sequels/Remakes. [ Comments: none ]

Elizabeth Banks is hot off of Cocaine Bear, so she thinks she can do anything. Anything like a remake of the 1985’s Girls Just Want to Have Fun, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The original film is about military brat Sarah Jessica Parker who secretly auditions with Helen Hunt, her best friend from Catholic school to be on a dancing show like Dance Fever. She gets paired up with bad boy Lee Montgomery. He has the support of his best friend, Jonathan Silverman and his sister, Shannen Doherty. They are going to do everything in their power to get on the show, but they are going to hit a lot of roadblocks before they get to the finale.

It was the perfect teen movie. And even though it holds up, today’s generation wouldn’t get it. Unless they change the dance show to be on something like So You Think You Can Dance. But that is not the same feel.

If you have never seen it, then you should watch it on Tubi for free. It is just a lot of fun! And don’t we all want to have fun?

Banks did something original. Why can’t she keep doing that instead of making something that has already been done?


David Soul has the perfect response to the Starsky & Hutch reboot
February 22nd, 2023 under Stupid Sequels/Remakes. [ Comments: none ]

Back in the ’70s, Starsky & Hutch was the biggest cop duo on television. And now there are reports that Fox wants to reboot the show with two women.

Well, when David Soul, who played Kenneth Richard Hutchinson in the original series, heard about it, he had some thoughts about that.

“Every article mentions the ‘original’ actors by name,” Soul wrote. “So why not just reboot Paul and me—as a couple of old farts solving piddly-ass crimes at the assisted living facility where we would now live? Who can do Starsky and Hutch better than him and me?”

He’s not wrong. I would watch the two 79-year-olds doing that. There is a lot of sketchy stuff that goes on at assisted living facilities, so imagine the fun they could have!

Maybe they can investigate who greenlit the Starsky & Hutch movie with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson because that film was a crime.


Black-ish creator to destroy The Wizard of Oz
August 15th, 2022 under Stupid Sequels/Remakes. [ Comments: none ]

The Wizard of Oz is a perfect movie. One that doesn’t need to be reimagined. However, Warner Bros thinks that it does, so they hired Black-ish’s Kenya Barris to do just that, according to Deadline.

How he will destroy the beloved film, we don’t know because it is all under wraps. Hopefully, it will stay that way.

If it doesn’t, then I will go all Wicked Witch of the West on them.
