Remakes of old films are often caught in a quandry. On one hand they serve to update an older film that might not have aged well. On the other hand they ultimately serve as nostalgic cash grabs that end up not being better than the original. Unfortunately the latter is the case for this film. Much like with the House Party remake, this movie doesn't hit the highs that the original film hit that made it such a beloved classic. Despite the characters having somewhat of interesting backstories, the charm that the original film had is not here in this remake.
