    There is a rumor that a remake of "Slap Shot" is in development. Why do they have to remake my favorite movie? Why?

    Will it be an all female cast and include a peppy song and dance number? Cause that didn't work for Ghostbusters. Like, at all.

    hey, you never know, right? the rooster cogburn movie with Jeff Bridges was okay... plus, you know, they have stopped loading people into train cars and forcing them to watch movies, right?

    nobody will ever replace the hanson brothers... the chiefs will live on in our memory and newman, there ain't gonna be a new paul newman.

    The Jeff Bridges remake was awesome, but they respected the original material. They didn't try to shape it to a modern day narrative that alienates half the audience. But as you suggest, ticket sales are their own form of justice. Bad movies fix themselves in the end, by disappearing from our memories.

    It can't be worse than
    'The Longest Yard' remake!
    ( yes it could)

    Some movies, you gotta leave alone!

    Was there a remake of that?

    ( or is the Nicolas Cage one, the remake?)

    Maybe they will give it to Tarantino. Then it would at least be entertaining.

    Apparently Spielberg has made a new West Side Story that will be coming out this year. I must admit I am a sucker for a musical.

    Considering the heading, I was expecting worse.
    IMO, if it upsets you so much, don't watch it.
    I can think of much badder very bad news - every day.
    Actually relieved with content .... carry on.

    I watched Slap Shot 2 once and the only amusing character was some goalie with ADD, it was semi-funny. Not sure about Slap Shot 3 if there was one.

    I bought a DVD of Slap Shot several years ago and was really disappointed that all of the music on the original soundtrack had been replaced by generic replacement songs. Not that 'A Little Bit South of Saskatoon' or 'Right Back Where We Started From' are deathless classics, but it really bugged me not hearing them in the scenes. I watched this movie countless times in the 80s.

    A remake is a terrible idea. It's a moment in time that can't be reproduced or moved to today.

    At least it's not a remake of The Bad News Bears.....with Tatum O'Neal in the Walter Matthau role! ;)
