This should be fun

by Volker Weber


Oh good grief. The original is such a classic, I'll *try* to keep an open mind on this remake, but, well, hmm ....

Think of it as a separate movie. Helen Mirren will be classic.

Yep - Helen is always classic.

With all due respect to Helen Mirren, John Gielgud already was classic in the role, and Dudley Moore was iconic.

The real magic of the original came from the chemistry between Dudley Moore and Liza Minnelli. That, more than anything, will be hard to follow. Also hard to reproduce will be Dudley Moore's convincing acting, where the clownish buffoonery occasionally gave way to reveal something of the character underneath, turning the film from a pure comedy into something altogether finer and more touching.

Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. Is nothing sacred?
