    I think that this movie is going to be hilarious! Hubby and I saw the original a few months ago for the first time and laughed through it too. We can not wait to see the remake.
    It occurred to me that no matter how bleak things might seem at times, at least I have a head. ----Stargazer

Why did the remake seems like Death Becomes Her (Goldie Hawn/Meryl Streep) from the 90's? It could possibly work or tank big time when it comes out. I still like to see it because along with Kidman, Broderick, & Midler it also has my fave Christopher Walken so who knows.....
    Now, if John Cusack had been in it I'd have watched it just because.

    I'm leaning toward this movie being dreadful.
    I do have a lot of faith in Nicole though.
    She usually picks good scripts and I find her acting impeccible even when she doesn't.

    John Cusack being a better choice for this movie and Nicole's impeccable acting.

    I agree with you here, Border. I'm not sure I'm keen on the campy, over-the-top tone I've seen in the commercials for the remake. I liked the original film (and book too), and think it worked because it was grounded in some really earnest performances. The re-make looks like it's winking just a little too much at the audience. And then in the commercials, they already blow the money shot of Nicole Kidman in the supermarket. Why?!!

    The Cusacks As A Couple in the movie? No No No
    Now that would awfully weird...

    I assume John was supposed to have been the role now played by Broderick and Joan was and is now the role played by Midler...

    I'm hoping this is good, but I have a feeling it's going to bomb big time. There was a t.v movie sequel, I saw last year on late night t.v with, of all people, Sharon Gless as the star. I loved the original movie ( what ever happened to Katherine Ross, I used to want to be her ) ?

    you could type up her name up at imdb and see what she's up to....
    She did appear in Donnie Darko as Jake Gyllenhaal's (i dunno if I am spelling his last name right) shrink

    Yes your right Border, I didn't see Donnie Darko, but I googled Katherine Ross.

    For you re: Donnie Darko. She's not listed on the first screen with the main cast but you can click on more and see her further down.

    Early reviews by critiques have this movie as a big flop. I'll wait for it on DVD.
