Hollywood loves a remake
14 September 1999 | by (sydney, australia) – See all my reviews

This is pretty much a redo of little miss marker, it's better than the walter matthau version although it may not beat the shirley temple one ;) Movies always seem to look better in technicolour. A good excuse for Tony Curtis to take the crew to disneyland.
