Why oh why?

MGM is currently developing a remake of the Rodney Dangerfield "classic" (and I use that term loosely) Back to School, currently set to star Bernie Mac. Do I need say more?

If they can do it under a good budget and make a profit off it I see no point NOT to try it. You have to have something more than Bond to make money off of.

Sounds pretty stupid to me. Hey here's an idea.......Bernie Mac in his own movie.

Bernie Mac is not that funny anyway, I don't see him being able to pull of the same comedy Rodney did.

Funny, I read that it was Cedric the Entertainer, not Bernie Mac (though Mac would be great for the Kinison part!).

I don't think Cedric (even though a lot funnier than Mac) can pull this off either.

Awww, I'd like to Tame her Shrew!

Can you help me straighten out my Longfellow?


That's comedy gold, why tamper with it?
