It has the right kind of mix between ludicrous action, corny lines, outrageous wardrobes, and I don't think the cast could have been better picked.
You can catch a vibe off of some movies, and I felt like they really enjoyed making that movie, you can just feel it. At least I can.
It's very hard to remake a period piece like that. If they do remake it, I doubt it will have anything at all in common with the original.
it were done specifically as a period piece on the 1980's. Like Donnie Darko--I think it captured the flavor of the 80's perfectly,
and managed on top of that to be extremely engaging. I think if they do remake it, it will either be not funny because the humor is forced, or it will
be too serious/gritty. I'm sure it will get remade eventually, I have a theory that all films that had an impact like that will get remade at some
point, because someone wants to recapture the spirit of a film, or wants to re-envision it.
Then again, remakes often get people who haven't seen the originals to go ahead and see them, and any excuse to watch my favorite movie is a good
