Movie Reviews

Not too bad, but I prefer the version with Jack Lemmon and S
Matt Tawesson | Macomb, IL, USA | 03/14/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"In 1970, this film came out with Jack Lemmon and Sandy Dennis as the title characters. Nineteen years later, here is a remake, with Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn playing the title characters. This remake from '99 was not bad (I rented it from Netflix), and Martin and Hawn were funny (I thought they were wonderful, and they are excellent actors), and this version was funny in general, but I felt that it wouldn't hold a candle to the 1970 movie. Martin and Hawn's characters go through similar mishaps like the characters from the original, but there are a few twists to the remake: the hotel manager is secretly seen wearing a woman's sable fur coat and a freaky looking cap while dancing and lip-syncing to the Donna Summer hit, Bad Girls, a vicious dog that lives in an apartment goes charging after the couple, to where the couple mistakenly walk into a group therapy meeting overhearing a man talk about masturbation, etc. Sure, this '99 version is funny to a degree, but I think the Lemmon and Dennis version from '70 is funnier. I feel that when a certain movie is remade years later after an original, the remake probably won't be as popular and maybe not well-received as the original was. If it is good or funny, again, it won't have as much humor as the original. For me, I prefer the original."
