UGH. Add FOX’s decision to create an American version of Absolutely Fabulous to my list of “If it ain’t broke, why remake it?” Otherwise known as “Are there REALLY no more original ideas out there, people?”
Here’s a little insight as to why this will fail miserably…namely, it is impossible to improve upon perfection.
Other titles that are going the way of “Why, God? Why?”
“Ten Things I Hate About You” into a TV series
“Footloose” with Zac Effron
“TEEN WITCH” with Ashley Tisdale (why don’t we just rerelease the original into theaters, like with Star Wars? How incredible would that be?)
“The Karate Kid” with Jaden Smith
“Logan’s Run”- oh my God, no one cares
