Will this one come with ” … and fancy free”?

I’m sure that in this Glee / So You Think You Can Dance / America’s Got Talent re-mix culture that we live in, this movie will do well.

It still doesn’t stop me from feeling like something is being violated here, that there’s this unknown, unseen cultural contract out there and this remake breaks that contract.

Anyone else feel this way?

  1. I agree with what you said. There is something missing here. Zac Efron was wise to turn down the role of the protagonist in this films. I haven’t seen the film so I don’t want to be too critical but it does come off as being very banal. The original film has an authenticity to it that is difficult to replicate.

    • Thanks for commenting! I’m not really even a big fan of the original … but it just seems “wrong” to try and remake.

      What’s next? Sixteen Candles?
