Invisible Pedestrian: A reboot?  What is it?


It's a completely pointless cash grab that will never live up to the greatness of the original and most fans will deny it even exists, but that's not important right now.

All the Scary Movie sendups and Movie 43 only bring into sharp relief that those movies were a lot more clever than they look. And if you don't have the chops, do not attempt.

"There's room for a 'Naked Gun' style. A bumbling guy in a position where he's respected. ... I want to do the character, but not the specific [job]. Not 'Naked Gun.'"

i would be okay with this.  it would be great to see more movies with the kind of straight-faced absurdity that made naked gun and airplane so brilliant.  i love that kind of humor.  if zucker could make a new movie in that style i would love to see it.

Gunderson: Especially since Scary movie 3 was done by Zucker, and it was awful (The studio stole the franchise from they Wayans brothers after the second one).



And this:
www.cultreviews.com

The zany parody movie that asks the question: why does Michael Moore hate America? Because obviously Michael Moore hates America, because he's making all of those movies that ask questions.

Zucker has fallen into the David Mamet/Dennis Miller vortex of suck that happens when talented individuals turn conservative. If he were to do another Naked Gun, I'm sure it would be full of 'subtle' 'humor' against liberals.

Not to take away from the writing, because there are some great jokes in the Naked Gun series, but Leslie Nielsen IS the reason those movies were so damn funny. Well, the first one is hysterical, the other ones were funny enough.

The only person I can think of that can conceivably approach Neilsen's Drebin right now is Ryan Stiles, but he's no where near the dramatic actor Neilsen was.

Granted, Ed O'Neill probably could pull it off as well and actually has the dramatic chops and impeccable comic timing of Neilsen, but he's a bit old now for the role I'd think.

Especially since Scary movie 3 was done by Zucker, and it was awful (The studio stole the franchise from they Wayans brothers after the second one).  Zucker by himself isn;t good, he need the other Zucker and Abrams in order to shine.

recoil47: texdent: Leave it alone and don't call me Shirley.

Except that the Shirley joke was Airplane! and not Naked Gun.  Headline fail, or thatsthejoke.jpg?  I'm leaning towards headline fail.


Well, ZAZ wrote and directed Airplane, Police Squad, and Naked Gun, so does it really matter?

Also, No. Just No, David Zucker. You enjoy your piles of money and leave well enough alone.

Jodeo: I might could see the new Frank Drebin being played by Liam Neeson (with a hairpiece similar to Leslie Nielsen's hair).

But I think they need to forego this and focus on rebooting Spider-Man or something...


This. It's been, what, six -- maybe seven -- hours since they've rebooted Spider-Man? Clearly overdue.
