Why's he have to be so ornery?

Mating Game is a charming, wonderful movie from an era gone by. Hollywood needs to consider a charming remake of this movie. My wife and I would go see it.
It is an excellent romantic comedy that my wife and I watched on AMC.
This movie has Tony Randall at his best. Debbie Reynolds is great, as always.
Loved it. We plan on ordering on DVD to add to our growing collection of movies.
Too bad Hollywood does not make movies like this anymore.
Hey Hollywood....time to dig some of these type of scripts out of the old safe, update them a bit (without spoiling the original movie and script as you have done with other remakes), and hold a casting call.
A remake would be a big hit on the silver screen, DVD, and on cable/SATTV.
