How do you do a remake of a perfect film? By re-doing it shot for shot. This movie is on homage of love by Vince Vaughn, and although citics panned it and made fun of the "walk through" on the shot-for-shot filming, it is a good film. Why fix what ain't broken?

Vince Vaughn actually does a great job as Norman Bates. He's no Anthony Perkins, but that doesn't matter. He delivers his lines a little differently, but it works. He's not trying to "be" Anthony Perkins, just his version of Norman Bates, and he does it well.

The last scene, which is probably the epitome of acting subtlety that was done perfectly by Perkins in the original, is actually done very very well by Vaughn. I think Vaughn shows he has more than just comedy talent. He has a broader range here than anyone would expect, and the end result is done well. Hitchcock fans will appreciate it.

Anne Hech steals some money from her boss and then stops at this motel called the Bates motel. Vince Vaughn works there. He keeps his dead mother's corpse in a rocking chair up in the house while he dresses up as her and then stabs Anne to death while she is taking a shower. A lot of people hate this shot-for-shot remake but I like it.

"Misguided and failing on every level this remake should be listed as THE example of Hollywood's creative bankruptcy. And what would possess the stellar supporting cast to join up with this carnival of stupidity? Every word of dialogue only serves to remind the viewer that they're watching some kind of backyard production compared to the irreplaceable original.

What's next Gus? Redoing Gone with the Wind? Ben-Hur? Citizen Kane?"

"Some movies are not ment to be re-made. Psycho is a classic and should have a patent on it so crappy verisons of it can't be made. This re-make sucked big time. It's hard for me to find a movie to put down, but I finally found one. Vince Vaughn can't play Norman bates at all. Nobody can play Norman Bates as good as Anthony Perkins. The whole movie was like an exact copy of the original. The movie was not as classy. Vince jacking it while watching the girl was disgusting and the death pose of the girl was not very appealing either. Julianne Moore and Anne Heche did ok though. I could their scenes again. Don't bother with this one."
