I just saw this today and laughed out loud!


Anyone remember the original? I absolutely loved that moving growing up. My best friend and I watched it so many times in high school that I think we honestly had the entire dialogue memorized. What a hilarious, classic movie!

Sequels are rarely ever as good as the original, but I'll still be interested to see where they go with it, as I'm a big fan of the original.

And with that, I leave you with one of the funny scenes from the original:

I loved the original and the cameo appearance of Mortimer and Randolph from Trading Places (another great Eddie murphy movie).

Nope. Been tooooo long, original is too funny.
My thoughts exactly.

I loved the original, but I just don't see any sort of remake ever working. As it is, I'm a bit tired of the remake trend that Hollywood has been riding for so long.

Then again, this came from yesterday's trailer, so I am particular bitter to remakes at the moment.
