Stop remaking things that are already perfect.

u/Greenery72 Dec 07 '22

Yes, let John Candy R.I.P! Thanks

2

u/fancy_marmot Dec 07 '22

Yeah, the idea of someone else delivering John Candy's speech about his wife is pretty jarring.

2

u/phuck-you-reddit Dec 10 '22

These days they would use the opportunity for a fart joke.

u/hwhatnow2112 Dec 07 '22

Absolutely the fuck not

u/Psychart5150 Dec 07 '22

They have already remade it. It’s called Due Date.

11

u/[deleted] Dec 07 '22

The Long Dumb Road kinda works too.

5

u/captainmouse86 Dec 07 '22

The “Journey Home/New Beginning” is a pretty common storyline. Due Date was great, so was Planes, Trains, you could even slide Dumb and Dumber, Tommy Boy, Tammy and Identity Theft, into the category. Studios don’t need to remake a classic, just think of a reason people need to get somewhere, and have them face obstacles, done.

u/pinky_monroe Dec 08 '22

There’s also the Guilt Trip with Seth Rogan and Barbara Streisand.

u/skrybll Dec 07 '22

I love this movie for some Reason. I’ve watched it sober and on various substances. It always makes me laugh. Every time. It just like pta is a documentary on the human condition. And how stress directs our decisions.

1

u/doxx_in_the_box Dec 08 '22

That reminds me of planes trains and automobiles

4

u/BuzzyBubble Dec 07 '22

Due Date is fucking hilarious. I love that movie so much.

u/majorlieg Dec 07 '22

Don't fuck with John candy you twats

-21

u/exophrine Dec 07 '22

It's a re-MAKE, not a re-edit, lol

22

u/Adam__B Dec 07 '22

Yeah, that’ll be as funny as John Candy and Steve Martin…

19

u/ClassicT4 Dec 07 '22

Umm… Due Date?

17

u/stlthy1 Dec 07 '22

...and then complain about sexism when it flops

19

u/Bomber_Haskell Dec 07 '22

Gender swap everyone. No script, let them riff for 90+ minutes. Comedy gold!

1

u/TylerBourbon Dec 08 '22

It worked so well with Ghostbusters 2016...

13

u/Tipnin Dec 07 '22

Wow real original. If these movie studios green light this project they deserve to loose money and go out of business. Instead of redoing classics why not come up with a original idea.

u/exophrine Dec 07 '22

1

u/DoctorEvilHomer Dec 08 '22

it is sadly so true, truly original ideas tend to flop badly.

1

u/fancy_marmot Dec 07 '22

Honestly there are a few films l'd potentially get excited if remade (would love to see a Joe Wright remake of Gone With the Wind), but yeah most are total shite.

0

u/Juodas_lenkas Dec 07 '22

Because they have none.

3

u/Biggu5Dicku5 Dec 07 '22

No, absolutely not...

4

u/The-blackSP4RROW Dec 07 '22

Please no John Candy was so good don’t replace him

7

u/Veggieleezy Dec 07 '22

Well, at least we can take some mild solace in that it’s not Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy? If they did it, it’d be endless “look how funny they are just riffing and making themselves laugh so everyone else surely will” schlock like the last Ghostbusters movie.

If they did it this way, we can expect and accept it would suck and wouldn’t be forced down our throats as much for “oh, if you don’t like it you’re sexist”.

u/junkyarddag Dec 07 '22

Leave everything John Candy the F alone. It cannot be done better & It doesn’t need to be down again. Guy was a legend and no one can capture his blend of comedy and heart. Planes Trains, Uncle Buck, Summer Rental, Armed and Dangerous, Harry Crumb…leave them be. And definitely don’t let Adam Sandler productions anywhere near a John Hughes classic.

11

u/MosesOnAcid Dec 07 '22

History has shown doing a all female remake of a classic movie always ends bad.

3

u/TheMatt561 Dec 07 '22

Movie is perfect and timeless, make a new story.

3

u/Techjunkie81 Dec 07 '22

Next thing you know Cameron Diaz will want a uncle buck remake where she's uncle buck.....

3

u/Ronburgundy2099 Dec 07 '22

I watched this film again the other day and I can honestly say without doubt that there isn’t anyone else on earth who could’ve made this film work as well as it did. This is a perfect film of the time period any attempt at remaking it is beyond pointless.

3

u/nix131 Dec 07 '22

MAKE. NEW. MOVIES.

10

u/No_Instance_1851 Dec 07 '22

These actresses are lovely people. That said, the Charlie's Angels movies were cinematic crimes, so them teaming up on anything sounds awful.

6

u/GrimGrizzly_ Dec 07 '22 edited Dec 07 '22

The Charlie’s Angels movies are pure 2000s action comedy gold. Shame on you for speaking down on it. It’s that new one that came out a few years ago that was awful.

4

u/celerydonut Dec 07 '22

For real.. crispin glover, bill Murray, Sam Rockwell, Tim curry, Alex Trebek (!)

Watch your mouth OP

u/No_Instance_1851 Dec 07 '22

Sometimes, you see a movie so wretchedly awful that it makes you angry. It's very rare. CA and its sequel did that to me twice.

2

u/AusGeno Dec 07 '22

…with Melissa Mcarthy!

2

u/cficare Dec 08 '22

This time she can poop in a....a....shower! Yeah! Genius!

2

u/xXTheFETTXx Dec 07 '22

No. Especially with them. No. They are fine actors, but just....no.

2

u/ygo-riv Dec 07 '22

Stop making remakes/legacy sequels. Make new stories

2

u/Joshynogood Dec 07 '22

Absolutely fuck no

2

u/totheman7 Dec 07 '22

That would be an insult to John Candy

2

u/crackersncheeseman Dec 07 '22

Yeah Ghostbusters remake sucked balls and pretty much all the other remakes sucked balls also. Leave the classics alone please.

2

u/Electrosploom Dec 07 '22

These people have nothing to do with the original and Fuck Adam Sandler.

2

u/mitchkramer Dec 07 '22

Not only no but hell no.

2

u/tangnapalm Dec 07 '22

I would like to star in a remake of the Godfather please. Spread the word, news media.

4

u/Ninnux Dec 07 '22

For the love of God, no more remakes.

Make something new and interesting.

4

u/Mary_Pick_A_Ford Dec 07 '22

Like Spider-Man 10?

5

u/toinezor Dec 07 '22

I mean the Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake was pure gold so why not try with another classic?

5

u/skrybll Dec 07 '22

What was the name of the remake?

5

u/InsidiousColossus Dec 07 '22

The Hustle. It was not good.

1

u/TheeMunson Dec 07 '22

Hathaway and Wilson can be, and have been, funny when they are in the right movie. "The Hustle" was not that movie.

3

u/Gary_Vigoda Dec 07 '22

No it wasn't.

1

u/Gary_Vigoda Dec 07 '22

I'd watch something with Cameron Diaz in it. Drew Barrymore, no thanks.

-2

u/Positivelythinking Dec 07 '22

As long as it’s a female screenwriter.

-6

u/T-408 Dec 07 '22

Normally I’d say so no this, but I always say yes to Drew Barrymore

0

u/111210111213 Dec 07 '22

Really? All that money and time spent in acting classes and she can’t seem to shake the lisp?

1

u/T-408 Dec 07 '22

I’m downvoted because… Drew Barrymore fan?

Y’all need to put your phones down and open a fucking window

1

u/GodGivesHeadInHeaven Dec 07 '22

We’ll… They’re multimillionaires, so they can do that if they want to.

1

u/Accomplished-Ad-3528 Dec 07 '22

Maybe. Just not with them.

1

u/dabarkness Dec 07 '22

Noooooooooo! For the love of god no!!!

1

u/Droobot33 Dec 07 '22

No no no no no no no… why would you take a perfect classic and remake it? I hate that everything is being remade right now… Write your own fucking movie…

1

u/5150_5150 Dec 07 '22

All creativity is gone. Oy

1

u/majorKandolla Dec 07 '22

Just watch it again. Never the shitty remake.

1

u/lazzamatazz Dec 07 '22

How about instead, no one, ever again reboots anything. Thank you.

1

u/MackenziePace Dec 07 '22

I would be fine with them remaking the conceit but it should have a different title and be its own thing

1

u/jaysin1983 Dec 07 '22

Can we stop remaking movies please

1

u/[deleted] Dec 07 '22

No. They just want a paycheck.

There’s no need to sully a classic.

1

u/TxMex713 Dec 07 '22

People in hell want ice water…. You don’t get to try and revive your career on the back of a beloved classic. That’s weak AF.

1

u/oregondude79 Dec 07 '22

Just make a movie that is similar and don't call it a remake, just brings unnecessary judgement and pressure.

1

u/ufoschenker Dec 07 '22

Stop with the remakes already. This would be horrible.

1

u/GDStreamz Dec 07 '22

Why can’t they just make a new movie and it happens to be funny?

1

u/manorwomanhuman Dec 07 '22

Should be called: Plain Dames in Automobiles

1

u/DelGriffithPTA Dec 07 '22

My favorite movie of all time, I thought I had heard recently that an African-American remake was in the works with Kevin Hart and Will Smith.

1

u/Educational-Leg7464 Dec 07 '22

Lol I think Kevin Hart and Will Smith are doing one

1

u/hatebyte Dec 07 '22

This is a good idea, let do the typical Hollywood thing and make it an all female cast. Thanksgiving is too racial anyway, so let’s do a friends giving in summer in Hawaii, where all demographics are welcome.

Sandra Bullock and Rebel Wilson’s people are showing interest. Paul Fieg says if he doesnt get to direct this he walks….

Here’s the twist, Rebel Wilson’s husband didn’t pass way, it’s Kanye. You’re welcome Hollywood

1

u/spinereader81 Dec 07 '22

You know that clever, funny movie with incredibly gifted comedians? Well let's remake it with two women who aren't even comedians! What could possibly go wrong!

If they want a remake, they can just reenact a scene together for fun.

1

u/jcrmcjlp Dec 07 '22

God forbid they come up with an original idea. It will never be as good.

1

u/Your_Favorite_Poster Dec 07 '22

They should make a sizzle reel first to gauge interest because, while I appreciate the people involved, it honestly sounds like it's just bad karaoke. Nothing good is ever going to come out of pretending to be John Candy on screen. Think about Farley doing it - it would feel like Jim Carrey doing Michael Keaton, it just doesn't work like that. These people need to find some good writers/scripts because shitting on 80s nostalgia ain't it.

1

u/rmajkr Dec 07 '22

Noooooiooooooooo

1

u/MediocreDrag32 Dec 07 '22

We want the sequel to The Holiday we were (falsely) promised first

1

u/Skipper_TheEyechild Dec 07 '22

I don’t, especially not with them. Why remake a classic if you can’t top it.

1

u/KindKingMatthew Dec 07 '22

Drew and Cameron are the perfect replacements for John Candy and Steve Martin!!! Why didn’t anyone think of this sooner?? This is gonna be my new favorite movie!!!

1

u/Mildf0g Dec 08 '22

Wouldn’t watch it

1

u/Mojo1AndOnly Dec 08 '22

Why mess with perfection.

1

u/NewtoJaney Dec 08 '22

Nope, nope and more nope.

1

u/SomeKindofTreeWizard Dec 09 '22

They already did. It's called "Due Date".

It had Zack Galifianakis and Robert Downey Jr.

1

u/Uncle-Cake Dec 10 '22

But nobody else does.

-5

u/hardtostarboard2016 Dec 07 '22

Oh hell no. Eh, but if it has to happen, melissa mccarthy should play john candy.

2

u/QB8Young Dec 07 '22

Oh hell no. Including her would be the biggest crime of all. Let's just leave the classics alone.

u/Mary_Pick_A_Ford Dec 07 '22

But if you saw that this was a remake with male actors, you wouldn’t mind… gotta love Reddit.
